I felt I had to review theseI felt I had to review these, and give them top marks, after a dive trip to the Galapagos. The usual things about small size and light weight could of course be said, and that's definitely a strong point to the fins. But the performance is not something that has been mentioned a lot. These fins truly deliver in the worst possible circumstances! I used them in extreme currents and managed to keep up with and even outperform divers and guides with more obvious choices for powerful fins. Whether using frog or flutter kicks, the fins worked flawlessly and constantly delivered the power I needed. After extensive kicking, I could feel some strain but far less than I've experienced with other fins such as e.g. Quattros. They feel welded to the foot and comfort is second to none. One minor complaint would be that they don't work as well on the surface for snorkeling but that's not a major concern, at least not for me. It's hard to fault them for durability as fins take a huge beating on the rocks off Wolf and Darwin, but the plastic did scratch quite easily. However, that's only cosmetic and doesn't affect performance.
