About OMS Slipstream Monoprene Fins

An OMS favorite! Slipstream Fins are made with monoprene creating a lightweight but high performance fin. Made with a spring heel strap, Slip Stream Fins give divers an easy donning fin that will also deliver the goods" in any condition. The light weight helps to keep the divers legs in optimal position when a low-silting kick is necessary and is also optimal for divers reduce damage while working around sensitive marine areas like coral reefs.

A fin so revolutionary that the U.S. Navy cut their swim time by 1 minute on a 500 Meter (540 yard) Swim! This proven fin design is manufactured from a lightweight, neutrally buoyant Monoprene resin that results in better trim positioning with maximum thrust on the down kick and minimal resistance on the up kick.

This traditional" open heel vented fin has durable Spring straps. One size does not fit all. Did you know that one size fits all spring heel straps may cause excessive coil expansion when used on a larger boot and extreme discomfort to your heel? This excessive coil expansion can facilitate line entanglement in between the expanded coils! OMS Spring Heel Straps come in multiple sizes to insure proper fit and help eliminate excessive coil expansion and entanglements! The springs expand and contract to automatically adjust and compensate for expansion and compression of the divers boot. The thick 4.5" (11.4cm) Achilles rubber pad provides unprecedented comfort in the heel area prevents heel discomfort and aids in donning and doffing of the fin. Fins are covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

monster torque

Whether single tank diving or diving doubles and/or stages, these fins can move you and your gear efficiently. Vs jetfins: These are far lighter (neutrally bouyant) allow better trim for tall divers in neoprene,and won't bust your baggage allowance. They may have less snap than a jetfin but for me the improved power transfer (wearing 5mm booties w standard vulcanized rubber sole) more than made up for it. My old XL jets' pockets are too wide and not tall enough. The OMS pockets are far bet...

Love these fins!

Short enough to fit in my carry on bag, stiff and wide enough to give good propulsion. Not the best for stronger currents, but in low current situations they are fantastic for frog kicking, reversing, helicopter, and tight turns and adjustments. They are very close to neutrally buoyant so, if you should happen to drop one getting on the boat, you've got a couple seconds to react and catch them before they sink :-)

Very light and efficient

New reading for the classic "old school rubber fins". Realy light and efficient, it may not be the best choice for dry suits. Certainly a great choice for fans of frog kick.

nice fin, good boot, tight strap,

By

from Ridgefield , WA, US

Pro's: tried and true design, larger/taller foot pocket than the trademaked jets, lighter weight Con's: no finger hold on the strap, can be tight with rock boots, lightweight can affect trim When in a dry suit; trim is perfect in fresh, slightly positive in salt. The lighter weight may be something to be considerate of if you have trim difficulties in a dry suit. I don't own splits or anything of lighter weight for comparison here, so take it for what it's worth. Love the fin, Hate the straps. I couldn't get my size 10 rock boot into the jet fins, just not a tall enough boot pocket. These in XL are plenty tall to get them in, while still fitting my standard size 9 neoprene wet shoe. However, the straps are near impossible to get over the rock boot. I took the spring straps from the scubapro jets and they bolted right in. Not only did this allow both pairs of foot wear to be used, but had the added finger hook. You can get larger straps from OMS for these fins, but they still don't come with finger hooks.

Fantastic!

These fins are light, strong, and produce plenty of propulsion! Foot pockets are much more comfortable than ScubaPro Jets'. Love those after my first dive

Slipstream Fins

These are a big help for people with heavy feet who want a tech fin but can't do the weight of a Jet fin in a wetsuit. It is a shame that they seem to be discontinued by OMS. There are other options out there but this one seems to be working for me. Some say you can adjust you leg position to balance heavy fins and keep trim. I think this is not true for everyone so light fins are a big help.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Silvia R  Great fins for cavern divers
THAD M  I bought two pair. One for diving wet, and the other larger pair for my drysuit. I like the neutral bouyancy especially with a wetsuit.
KEVIN K  THEY FIT MY ROCK BOOTS THAT ARE SIZE 11
PABLO W  The BEST fins EVER!!! Don't look at any other fins. They are light, perfect for travel BUT resistant and quality is just awesome.
kevin g  I'm a size 10 shoe, but wear thin booties(2mm), would Large be the correct size for me?
ALEX H  I believe so. I am a 9.5 with booties and the size Large works fine for me. I tried the XL and it was way too big,
RONI K  Hi Kevin, I think that large should be the correct size for you. I'm a size 9 shoe, but wear thick booties (5mm), and Large works fine for me.
ERIC Y  I wear a 9.5 (wide) shoe and wear 5mm booties with these fins and it works great. Note, if you are planning on upgrading to the spring straps you might want to go with Med.springs. I bought lg spring straps (thinking it made sense to match them) and when wearing the fins, the springs strap is a bit too big.
kevin g  Thx Eric! I am going to get spring straps, so I'll consider getting M straps.
Shopper  Is this positively buoyant?
HERBERT M  No.It's a very light material.But they are still negative buoyant.
DERRICK K  I don't think so but it is much lighter than ScubaPro Jet Fins. Many drysuit divers prefer the later because they need the fin to be heavier for better trim. ScubaPro Jet Fins are also softer and less rigid. They have the same design but ScubaPro uses different material. I own both but I switched to use ScubaPro Jet Fins exclusively for both cold and warm water diving
EYAL D  No
MARISSA W  No - they are neutrally buoyant...
