    1 Review Stars By s

    The most uncomfortable flippers I've ever tried.


  • 4/21/2010 Diappointed in Fit

    1 Review Stars By S

    After reading other customer reviews, we ordered according to our son's current shoe size.  They fit snug on land, but the first time they were used in the pool, they kept coming off, even with additional tightening that made them too tight out of the pool.  Since they've been "used" (only once in the else can you really test a good fit?), they cannot be exchanged for a smaller size and now we have to buy another pair.

    5 Review Stars By Ampster

    I use these for breast stroke, freestyle, butterfly, and underwater endurance workouts. I find that they force you to do your leg strokes properly. They feel heavy (at first). But, with continued use, my legs have grown muscles, strength, and tone that their weight no longer matters. I "fly" with these through the water.

  • 7/4/2012 great overall practice fins

    5 Review Stars By Elly

    Even though these were originally designed for breast stroke, I use them for IM training and love that they don't hurt, aren't too big, but exaggerate each kick in each stroke just enough to strength train with accuracy. This is my second pair, but the first is still usable four years later.

  • 9/22/2009 Buckets on your feet

    2 Review Stars By Derek

    I got these flippers primarily because I do breaststroke and I wanted the ability to do other strokes as well.

    Breaststroke kick can be done with them

    Any other stroke they act like buckets on your feet. you may notice they have no holes for water to exit. This makes it incredibly strenuous when swimming linear strokes (butterfly, freestyle, backstroke). A common solution to this problem is to drill three holes into the flipper.

    They also leave terrible bruises on my toe knuckles where the flipper presses against when I kick.


    Fit: Feels too small

  • 6/25/2012 best swimfins

    5 Review Stars By Barbara C.

    These are just the best fins. They really give you a connection between your hips and your legs and feet, and a sense of what a good kick should be, and they don't make your feet cramp as fins with foot pockets do. Somebody was thinking when they designed these.

  • 11/7/2008 Great way to work the legs in all strokes.

    5 Review Stars By Bamboo

    I love these fins for breaststroke and the extra leg work they give me. I've been using these for about  2 years and  use them to make me feel my legs. During IM's it is nice to be able to use them for all four strokes.

    Great for all strokes.
    Surprisingly great for long-axis strokes.
    Helps work the core muscle groups.
    Difficult to assemble at first.
