These fins are excellent. Firstly, they are extremely comfortable. Secondly you can really feel that the power from your foot is tranduced effectively. Whilst kicking you can really that you are making a pretty perfect flex action that is extremely smooth and powerful. Thirdly, they really look as if they would last a very long time. The material is very tough. -I took them scallop diving two days ago, was very happy going down to about 30-35 feet.
These fins are brilliant, you ve got almost everything in one package. I believe the reactivity is very close to carbon, torsional strength is slightly off though, however only carbon enthusiasts will really notice. Durabilty is amazing, will easily last ten times longer than carbon. Foot pocket and placement below the fin blade is perfect. I m prone to sore ankles with harder fins but after powering up and down the pool for over an hour getting a few stats for you I didn t get any soreness whatsoever, had a slight twinge in the calf but put that down to not being in the water for a few weeks. I m a size 10 and the 44/45 s fit perfect with up to 3mm socks. Lap wise in the pool.at 75% power did 25m in 15secs. With a dolphin kick style(kick kick glide) did 25m in 7 kicks 4 glides. Performance wise I m no superfish either, my DF is only 75m. These fins are fine for scuba,working on your competitive apnea but definatley for any spearfishing conditions you dive. They feel twice has hard as my stingrays but you wouldn t know it once they re powering you through the deep blue. Lastly thanks to the sales team, very professional thanks guys!
These are GREAT fins. Not for beginners because there is a lot of fin. I use them on long trips all day and can swim all day with these fins, with great performance. The foot pocket is the best and lots of power off the bottom.
I have used these fins extensively on scuba and free diving and I am very impressed with their performance and durability. They handle knocks and scrapes without any dramas at all. Excellent product, great price.
