Super fins!

By JOHN B.

Very efficient when used with a flutter-kick, which took a little acclimation. Once I stopped over-kicking, the advantage of the split fin became apparent. Easy to grasp strap loop makes getting on/off easy, even with gloves.

Split fins have become the most popular style fin in diving today. Just look around when you are out beach diving or on the charter boat and you will soon discover that more divers are making the switch to this style fin. Why are they so popular? They are popular because they work, and you, work less! A split fin performs more like the combination of a whale's tail and a propeller. When you kick the two separate blades twist and create more of a propeller surface which will increase your propulsion and lift. You feel as if the fin is not strong enough to keep you moving as fast as you are accustomed with your full bladed fin, yet you cover the same distance in the same time.

Less drag, more thrust and most important less strength is used. The split fin design is not only unique; it uses the latest technology in composite plastic polymer materials to give a light fin (great travel fin) and one that increases thrust and reduces fatigue. Fin is equipped with EZ-LOK squeeze-style quick-release buckles which snap-on-and-off with ease yet will not disengage accidentally, and the spring strap that automatically compensate for boot compression and adjust with changes in depth. The spring straps are rust resistant stainless-steel springs were designed with variable pitch geometry. Divers get a more comfortable fit and easy one hand removal with the large rubber thumb tab, yet the springs are resistant to deformation if overstretched. Spring straps are included on the Smoke on the Water Split Fin and available for all Atomic Split Fins or as a universal retrofit for other brands (see SKU: ATMFSS).

Extensive R&D and testing yielded the perfect formula of flexibility and rigidity for efficient propulsion. Atomic multi-composite plastics result in a powerful kick that requires less effort, stress and strain meaning less air consumption. The power rails are highly resilient and perform as the backbone of the split fin, storing and releasing energy with every kick. The semi-ridged flex battens set in the soft elastomeric blade, control the precise wing shape to optimize thrust and reduce drag. The large surface area blade improves pivoting, turning and alternate kick styles.

Thin, yet strong and highly flexible hinge points between the semi-ridged battens cause the blade to react quick-and-efficiently to the slightest kick. The anatomically contoured foot pocket designed to fit your foot without stress points, with semi-open toe for added comfort. The internal sole plate creates ridged platform beneath the foot for greater power transfer to the blade yet provides a soft, comfortable open heel foot pocket. Fins are available in multiple sizes So, make the switch and use less effort which equates to less air usage and longer more comfortable dives.

Not enough power

I bought these fins to replace my Rocket Fins which were 30 years old and wanted something new, high-tech, and light weight. Based on the reviews I felt I had a good set of fins here. The fins lived up to being high-tech, and light weight. Under normal drift-diving conditions these fins performed fine. However, once the current came up a bit or you had to move fast under water, or were on the surface, these fins left a lot to be desired. I was actually happy when the live-aboard dive boa...

foot strap makes it worth it

By TIM H.

bought these originally cuz i thought they looked cool and i was getting atomic stuff. never had split fins before, definitely took getting used to. the foot pockets seem a little smaller than average, i did have issue with the boots with full soles, but the normal ones work fine. but the best feature is the straps. they make putting em on and off much easier than others i've seen. and yet there's no issue with them slipping off during use.

 

TOTALLY worth the money

By MITCH B.

from dallas, TX, US

Most comfortable fins I've ever worn! I was using the Mares Avanti Quattro fins (2x pair) but found that I'd start cramping up a bit and with a small bone spur on my knee felt some pain) so John talked me into these. They don't have the same propulsion and the quattros but they are above adequate and I never cramp or feel knee pain.

 

Awesome fins

By David D.

from Worland, WY, US

Like their name says. " Smokers". Less fatique and fast.

 

Very nice, but watch the size

By Bruce B.

from Greenbrier, TN, US

As always, Leisure Pro does great with getting things right, even if correction is required. The fin is very nice, and the spring straps are going to be very effective. I have used springs before and didn't like them because the fin felt like it was coming off. The boot pocket on this fin is MUCH tighter around the foot, eliminating virtually all movement inside. Because of the tight pocket, I had to go up a size to an XL to accommodate a thicker dive boot. The L that I got initially was right for my shoe size, but woefully too small to fit my boot properly.

 

They help you move faster with less effort, they are the bes

Perfect Fin for bad Knees

By Jofoto

I have Osteoarthritis in my knees and fell badly on my right knee last winter. I was afraid that that i would have a lot of pain while diving.... so I opted for these. I am so glad I did ... they are perfect. They let me enjoy the sport that, I love without any worries.

 

Outstanding!!

By DocWade87

Quick delivery, outstanding customer service over the phone, and awesome prices that beat all other prices on the net!

 

GREAT fins

By tazman

LeisurePro is GREAT company! I send all my divers to this site. I've used many fins & these are my favorite, VERY smooth & very little effort is needed to propel yourself underwater.I'm never "sore" the following day after diving. Spring clip in system is AWESOME!

 

Best Fins Ever!!!!

By MANNY M.

I wore Scuba Pro Twin Jets for 5 years. I tried this fins and oh my god!!!!!!! What a huge different it is now to just cut throught the water and not work so hard to get where you wanna go. Simply the best fins I have ever used. Leisure Pro is a great company and I will never get any equipment from anywhere else.

 

Very well made fins

By Kris

Very nice fins with great straps. They ooze quality but they are quite big and heavy. In other words not the best travel fins but they do what they promise.

 

Atomic never disappoints!!!!

By Sad B.

Great for scuba diving. A few little flutter kicks and your hauling tail through the water and you don't even realize it because you have to kick so little. Awesome awesome awesome fins! If I have a con its that they are a little long so you don't want to take a jog in them. On my first dive I found myself kicking things without even realizing it but it just took a few dives to get used to it. I don't want any other fin on my foot!

 

ABSOLUTE BEST FIN

By Dr C.

HANDS DOWN OR FEET DOWN THE BEST FINS EVER. I HAVE HAD FULL FOOT AND STRAP FINS. SPLIT AND SOLID. YOU MUST WEAR THESE WITH A BOOT, PREFERABLY ONE WITH A STRAP BUMP ON THE HEEL. THESE ARE TRULY SO COMFORTABLE THA THEY FEEL LIKE YOU NOT WEARING FINS. PROPULSION BETTER THAN MY FULLFOOT SOLID AQUA LUNG.

 

Great Deal and service

By musty

Leisure pro's PPF Guarantee works perfectly you never have to worry about if something fits or not

 

Easy for the weak people

By jilopher

I own the scuba pro seawing and like the weight, easy on/off but they are a bit more buoyant when just surface snorkeling. I broke my ankle and could use them but with slight pain. So my hubby got me these SPLIT FINs that looked bulky and heavy. Do NOT judge it from the looks. These split fins are like butter in the water. Everyone borrows them and then buys them!

 

Great Open Water Fins!

By JavaDiver

The steel spring straps on these fins are excellent. Also, Kicking is very easy with great propulsion. Foot pocket was larger than I expected, and too big for use with a bootie, but perfect for use with a molded sole dive boot. They're very lightweight, but also rather long (around 32 inches), so maybe difficult to travel with. Overall though, an excellent fin - well worth the money.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
COREY B  Awesome power & ease of donning. I use both flutter & whip kick technique as a videographer, & the precision of keeping me where I want to be is outstanding. Used them in Galapagos currents & they really shined. The only downside is that they are a bit longer than my other fins, & so I have to especially be mindfull of keeping them off the coral.
Robert C  Best split fin but I've switched to ScubaPro SeaWing Novas now ...
James R  I have many atomic s products, the engineering that goes into all of the products pays off, the minute you splash in.I don't think they have ever made a product that didn't perform at the top of the charts.
ERIC H  Own a pair of Mares x-streams as well and they are nice light fins. My problem is that they have a small foot pocket that do not accomidate hard sole boots. Bought these from the reviews and when you consider they come with ss spring straps they are a great value. Accept the hard sole boots and looking forward to testing them out at Dutch Springs this week.
Shopper  What size are these demos?
