About Aqua Lung Slingshot Open Heel Fins

When someone says the word "Slingshot", most people gain mental images of something moving fast and adeptly. Those images are key to Aqua Lung's new Slingshot Fins. The Slingshot Fins will help you move through the water with Speed and Ease you never thought possible. These Fins brag of having Power Bands, which are basically Coiled Energy waiting to Spring-into-Action as you Fin. Pure Silicone Power Bands are Loaded-with-Energy on the Power Stroke. They Release their Energy Prior-to-the-Upstroke to provide an Added Boost of Power. Instead of Wasting your Energy, you Accumulate-it-and-Reclaim it! Power Bands Lessen Fatigue and Add Thrust.

The Mid-Foot Joint Increases the Slingshot's Flexibility, which will make each Kick more Efficient and Comfortable, partially due to the fact it move the source of your Kicks from the Front of your Foot to the Entire Leg. This takes the Strain off of the Toes and the Top of the Ankle. The result is a Dramatic Improvement in Comfort. You can now use the Entire Foot to Power the Fin. This provides the Blade a Significantly Larger Range of Motion, often up to 5 times that of a conventional fin.

Finally, much like a Car or High-End Bicycle has a Gear Shift, so do the Slingshot Fins. The Gear Shift allows you choose one of three Settings to Control your Energy and Effort Levels in Response to your Diving Conditions. Easy to Shift During-the-Dive, the three Settings can be made even with Gloves. Because these Fins contain Harnessed Energy and an Ingenious Design, you'll experience Less Fatigue and Joint Pain and more Enjoyment than you would wearing any other fins. The Slingshot Fins come equipped with Adjustable Fin Straps with Squeeze-Style" Quick-Release Buckles and the Straps have a Large Pull-Tab for Ease of Donning and Doffing. These Open Heel Non-Vented Fins are available in 3 sizes of Small, Medium or Large/X-Large and are available in Silver/Black or Silver/Blue colors. The Slingshot Fins are covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

Do yourself a favor and pick these up

As a military diver i have tried just about every fin under the sun. Everything from the original rockets to force fins to bio fins and let me tell you the slingshots are head and shoulders above the rest. They greatly reduce fatigue and cramping. If you arent the fastest finner, the slingshots are very efficient. I am a very strong finner and i frequently have to reduce the setting to "1" when diving with others, if not i find myself stopping and waiting for everyone else :) I was very ...

Lots of Hype, little performance

These fins are too heavy in relation to the thrust they put out. In other words, if you are going to sport a heavy fin then it should put out some thrust, the slingshot is way heavy and little to moderate thrust.. The slingshot adjustable feature has 3 settings, 2 of which are useless in any type of current (too loose). Setting 3 gives you the most tension and the fins work okay in this setting, however there are silicone bands that are attached to the foot pocket (slingshot system) and they ...

Best replacement

By

from Venice, FL, US

Have made 6 dives now with my new fins of choice. They replaced my good old blades that I will still use on some work dives. These new sling shots are great. They don nice and have great control with little effort. The only down side is I had a bit of a problem un- clipping them. I did have 5 mil gloves on and the buttons are just a bit smaller than the Blades were. All in all these are great fins. I would strongly recommend to all my dive buddies!

aqua lung sling shot fin review

By

from Port Orford, OR, US

This is my second pair the first set lasted 8 years before I lost one in the surf. The bands need to be replaced every 2 or 3 seasons. Bought a new set as they were looking pretty beat up anyway. They are easy on your knees and legs. Seem to provide good power and speed with minimal work. The price is excellent, a great value for equipment of this quality.

Great fins for both snorkel and scuba

By

These are the same model fin I used during my scuba certification. They really move a lot of water, making it easy to swim without a lot of effort. They are also adjustable so that you can effect how much water you move with each kick.
