The Aqua Lung Shot FX fins are specifically designed for the female foot shape to create a more comfortable fit and a more efficient use of energy.
The Shot FX fins uses the power band technology from the slingshot and hotshot fins but rather than use them in the same way Aqua Lung has incorporated this energy efficient technology into the foot pocket, creating a 'Power Zone'. The foot is firming anchored into the pocket using a spring strap which helps transfer all the power from your leg to the fin as effectively as possible.
The blade uses a flexible channel design with a high performance elastomer material in the centre that helps to cup and focus the water through each kick to improve efficiency. The side bars that provide strength to the blade also help to contain the water during the downstrokes to maximise the propulsion from each stroke. The blade uses a softer material and is slightly shorter then a traditional fin to make it easier to kick without tiring quickly.

Aqua Lung Shot FX Fins - Features
?Advances in design, materials and manufacturing techniques has allowed the development of various differenet types of fin blades which control the movement of water in different ways.
More advanced blades, including split and hinged blades, can dramatically increase efficiency, helping to improve propulsion but also lower the amount of energy required to operate the fins.
|Fin Length (mm)|
?The overall fin length of a medium sized fin
|Fin Weight (Pair kg)|
?The overall weight of a pair of medium fins including buckles and straps
?Fins are available in two fitting types, open heel and full foot pocket.
Open Heel are typically used for scuba diving as they are able to provide better propulsion due to their increased strength and weight.
Full Foot Pocket fins are usually worn by snorkellers who produce significantly less drag when moving through the water compared to a scuba diver. As a result the fins are generally smaller and much lighter.
|Quick Release Buckle|
?Quick release buckles aid fitting and removal of the fins by allowing rapid fitting and release of the fin strap.
Rather than having to loosen the fin strap off before pulling it over your heel to remove the fin, the quick release buckle allows you to disconnect the strap and slide your foot straight out.
?A number of different fin strap styles can now by found on fins including the traditional adjustable rubber strap, metal spring straps and also bungee straps.
Rubber straps can be easily adjusted to suit each individual diver and are typically fitted with quick release buckles.
Spring and bungee straps are generally not adjustable and are sized to suit the fin size, however, they offer an extra level of comfort and flex better during the kick motion.
