    Comments about Sherwood Elite Fins:

    I bought these for snorkeling. I had old divers fins (don't know the brand) for years that were heavy (on land), but incredibly powerful and efficient, but not easy to get on and off. I wanted something with quick release straps and these looked good and reasonably priced. They're good, very lightweight and comfortable, but not as powerful/efficient. And I didn't realize how long they were! Not ideal for travel; probably very good for diving.

        Excellent lightweight fin, also makes it great for travel. It starts easy but it has power when you want to push more. Easy on legs too, never had any problem in several hours spent in the water. Highly recommended

            Comments about Sherwood Elite Fins:

            As a follow up to my first review I finally got these puppies wet. Spent 2 hours snorkelling and got 2 dives on them as well. These did not disappoint. Very light weight. Easy to put on in the water or on deck. Easy to remove in the water while maintaing a hold on the fin thanks to the heel strap.

            The slightly positive buoyancy allowed for a better trim. In current at the surface you don't need to kick hard to move against it. Note however that I'm a strong kicker. These fins are very powerful and efficient.

            Thanks to sherwood for producing these excellent fins with XL sizes of 13 and 14s.

              Comments about Sherwood Elite Fins:

              I just got my fins today so haven't got them wet yet. I did however want to post a review as reviews for these fins are non-existent making it harder for online customers to purchase.

              Firstly, get the sizing right. Sherwood has sizing for these fins on their site. I used this to validate my size and it fits well. I wear size 13 with width of 2E/EE shoes. With my size 13, 5mm hard sole boots I get a comfortable and snug fit. As the straps aren't adjustable sizing becomes even more important. If you wear 14s as long as you are a 2E/EE you should be ok. Note I tried the fins dry not wet and we know wet makes a big difference.

              Secondly. I like the silicone heel strap as an alternative to spring straps. It seems very solid. Obviously they won't have a working life comparable to SS springs but I get the feeling they don't affect the buoyancy and allows the fin to remain light weight.

              Come weekend I will get these babies wet and see how they perform both snorkeling and scuba so for now I can't talk about efficiency. From the outside they look exceptional added to the fact they have an extremely comfortable foot pocket where the upper portion appears to be "rubber" hence the comfort and a plastic like foot plate. This alone makes these more comfortable than my other scuba fins which I love dearly.

              Lastly I can't forget LP. Thank you for the quick delivery and satisfying my order to perfection.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  How long are the fins?
              Kenny H  The large fins are 25" from heel to fin.
              Kenny H  I wear men size 9 and 10 dive boots( 9.5in tennis shoes) and I am unsure what size catagory I would fall into? Meduim or large?
              DON S  I am the same foot size and ordered "Large". Unfortunately that turned out to be the wrong size. The actual size men's shoes for the "Large" is 11 to 12. Because the heel strap is a fixed length I was unable to even put my boot in and cinch the strap real tight. I recommend buying the medium if you choose this fin.
              Shopper  Can I use "EZ Spring Fin Strap - Recreational Diver, Black(SKU :AQUEZR)from Innovative" on this fins?
              Corey R  Yes, I've used mine (the blue ones) on these as the connection is standard. You will however have to use the post that comes with the Elite fins as its a smaller connection that those found on other fins. So un-clip the silicone strap and clip in the springs. Just make sure you get your sizing right as these fins have a generous foot pocket which is actually a good thing.
