About Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8)

When using the standard, flat fin, propulsion is inhibited solely by fault of design When the leg is completely extended, there remains an angle of 27 degrees between the heel of the foot and the calf of the leg This 27-degree angle causes 10% of the propulsion that is produced by the kicking motion to be lost Because the fin is angled below the body, during the kick phase, the body is pushed up and forward, instead of straight ahead With a normal flat fin, 10% of the diver exertion to propel him forward is lost by battling this upward force With the TUSA X-PERTZOOM FIN, that 27-degree angle has been incorporated into the fin This means that when the leg is fully extended, even though the angle exists between the foot and calf, the fin ends up parallel to the leg This means that 100% of the energy expended during the kicking phase is directed toward the propulsion of the diver

These fins worked great for me. I have knee problems & my legs/feet get spastic/cramps. These fins allow me to conserve air, move thru the water faster, & are easier on my muscles then my standard fins. I have used my buddies for many dives & decided to buy my own pair. Great price to. I wear a size 9 women's shoe. I dive in either a 5mm hard sole boot or a 3mm soft sole boot & the M/ML fins fits both boots great. Yeah you can't do certain kicks with these but overall for me the pros came out on top of the cons!

This is a good split fin for its price, better than my Scubapro splits in general.

feels true to size, Great for those with bad knees or have a hard time kicking. Really, it's almost you aren't strained at all but you are moving quite quickly and pretty light.

The bad well it is very long , cumbersome on the bottom floor, does only flutter kicks, floppy, tends to slap the surface water and not stay submerged. Thrust is definitely not here.

If you want a split fin, this is great for its price.

    These fins fit nicely in our Mares Criuse Backpack. They are easy to adjust and to get on in the water. They work very well in the water as well. Very nice fit!

      Great fin. Still learning to use as I'm not sure I'm getting a lot of thrust out of them.

            The sizing chart said mens shoe size 7-11 but I wear a size 9 1/2 and I tightened the straps all the way down to the tightest setting and it barely fit. The M/ML is more like a straight large. Can't wait to try them after paying to ship them to me and back for an exchange.....

              These are great fins that require less effort to move around, the only downfall is if you get in a hurry, want to move faster or have a long kick on the surface or current they are rough on the ankles.

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              JAMES C  My whole family dives with these split fins. They perform wonderfuly.
              Shopper  Hi, I bought these fins from your store about 1.5 years ago. On our last trip the buckle fell off and we lost it. How can we get a replacement? We can come into the store as well. Would the "Aqua Quick-Release Fin Buckle, without The Fin Strap" fit? Thanks.
              Frank L  Try these ones: SKU: TBTFSA.
              Porschelyne M  The black have harder compound does that relate to more speed stuck between these and sf-15 that are slightly longer???
              JIMMY M  I purchased the black because they are harder or more stiff and so give a little better propulsion than the colored versions. I do not have any experience to compare with the longer model you mention.
