I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
I like the brand and the features offered in this fins. I tried them first time in my recent diving trip to Cozumel at the end of September, 2011. As promised, excellent performance. I love them.
My buddy had the fins.And we went on a trip and i try them and i like them a lot you can move faster and hover in one spot . They are great fins!
A friend had purchased them and was happy with the performance and they were at a good price so I bought a pair. I like the way the split fin works.
I bought the split fin because I prefer the way the split fin performs. I grew up as a competitive swimmer so when I dive I am usually doing a butterfly kick, but that's just me. I think it requires more force than a solid blade fin to propel forward, but I prefer the split blade when I'm moving slowly/exploring or hovering. I would definitely recommend investing in a set of heel strap springs. The buckle straps they came with are great but almost too secure once I tightened them up. The buckles were very difficult to loosen after the dive. I'm in reasonably good shape and I struggled for several minutes to get them loose. It was just as hard up on the boat.
It's a high quality product.
These were among the most reasonably priced split fins sold through Sherwood which is a tried and true manufacture of SCUBA gear
Recommended as a "best value" by Sport Diver magazine.
great price - I also love the split fin design
I bought them after trying them out. Our local scuba instructor had them and I tried them in the pool. I couldn't hardly tell I had fins on because they don't require alot of leg power compared to the Dacor stiff fins I had been using. The thrust was very good with little effort. I went diving in Cozumel this summer and was worried that the split fins would not work well in the current. After the first dive I realized I need to worry no longer. They work great!! I did upgrade to the spring straps which make then so much easier to get on and off.
The split fin was recommended by my dive instructor. It provides great propulsion with little effort or energy. Helps to keep your legs from getting tired during long dives. I would strongly recommend these fins they have worked out great and exceeded my expectations.
price and reviews.
This type of fin was recommended by several fellow divers. You get a lot of forward motion with little effort. Very comfortable and the price was right.
