I am a commercial diver and underwater welder. I wear these fins about 5 times a week, swimming through rocks, barnacles, cables.....you name it. I have over 3000 dives to my name and have owned many fins. These are the best bar none. I have an unused set hanging in my closet for when my first set with over 700 dives on them finally gives way.

I am on my fifth pair of Turtles after 30 years of diving.I use these fins for basically three reasons..(1)I like a good heavy fin for drysuit diving, (2)most other fins done fit heavy drysuit boots and (3)the price is usually quiet reasonable. However, there are two shortfalls..(1)Even the largest size are a little tight for heavy attached boots and (2) the foot pockets eventually fail and rip. I should note that I do lots of drift diving in high current rivers and stop often to dig out bottles,etc. When I stop on bottom I am often in a position where I lean back onto fins and put a lot of pressure onto blades and foot pockets. Eventually any fin would fail with the abuse I put on them but Turtles hold up better than most. Actually a 4th reason I keep buying them is so that I can have a spare when I break one. Overall they are a good product if they meet you needs. Replace the straps with expanding sprind straps for ease of use with bulky drysuit and reduce chance of loss.

          I have a size 16 foot and this fin fits quite well with a 3mm shoe. Foot pocket doesn't seem as big as my Hollis F1, I have a bit of a struggle getting my dry suit boots in(size 17 converse all stars :) ) but still a good fin.
          Someone with a smaller boot 14-15 would work well.
