  • 10/19/2011 Great but.... boot split

    1 Review stars By Thomas B.

    This fin offers great performance, but after less than a handful of work outs (7-8), the left boot is tearing. Based on another reviewer with the same problem, I would have to say the quality is lacking. I'm 170 lbs and have a 9.5 shoe size so nothing extraordinary. This fin should last longer.

  • 10/8/2011 NOT PLEASED

    1 Review stars By Todd T.

    THIS IS THE SECOND FINIS RAPID MONOFIN THAT I HAVE RECEIVED. BOTH HAVE BEEN DEFECTIVE IN THAT EITHER BOOT SPLITS AFTER ABOUT TWO USES. I AM NOT REFERRING TO THE STRAP THAT HOLDS YOU IN, RATHER TO THE ACTUAL FOOT HOUSING THAT ONES FOOT SLIDS INTO. THE ONLY PEOPLE USING MY MONOFIN ARE YOUTH BOYS AGES 9-14 WITH THE LARGEST FOOT SIZE BEING A 10.

    My size twelve foot will not even come close to getting into the foot compartment, not even a little.

  • 4/13/2019 prove me wrong and post a video of using this

    1 Review stars By finis

    I don't know what the 5 star reviews are talking about? They are all exaggerating and off their rockers. Post a you tube of using this product and I'll believe you.

    The product construction is great, but to use it. NO Way!

    Ridiculous, awkward, slow and huge motions. I tried it for weeks and could not figure this thing out.

    I love the regular finis foil monofin. I have use one for years daily. This Rapid monofin thing is bulky and way over designed. Form does not meet function here.

    I would recommend and buy the finis foil monofin over the Rapid one big time. the foils fail too after a lot of use but at least they work.

    I sent my Rapid one back after weeks of annoyance.

    5 star users prove me wrong with a you tube video. Seriously the thing looks awesome but i could not figure it out at all. I would love to eat my words and willing to repurchase.

    If nothing else at leaset correct me for my grammor, speling or not capitalizing the i above.

    In all seriousness perhaps there is a video online of someone successfully using this, or there should be.

    Until then I would say this is more of a manatee fin.

  • 12/4/2015 not for wide feet

    1 Review stars By Shane S.

    This is the second model of Finis monofin I've tried and the sizing seems poor for men. I've tried the Finis Rapid and Aquarius. The Aquarius was fine for width but not for length and the Rapid is too narrow and unforgiving. I wear a 10 4E and although this is supposed to fit up to size 12, I doubt that it would fit even a standard width person with size 11 or 12 feet.

  • 6/16/2015 A formerly dependable monofin that seems to suffer from manufacturing flaws

    1 Review stars By B.W.

    A few years ago I purchased a black-colored Rapid monofin. It served me and my workouts well for over a year before the boots started tearing little by little, resulting in a needed replacement. Things wear out, that's understandable.

    So last year I bought this yellow Rapid from Swim Outlet. For some reason I noticed that the yellow fin's construction seems to be of a lesser quality, with the boots tearing even faster than the older black model. Also the strap hook placement snapped within a month of use, making the hook fall off. A little epoxy on the hook and yellow placement solved that problem, although the boots kept tearing. After almost a year it teared enough to become unusable.

    Last month I received my 3rd yellow Rapid, hoping the issues would have been fixed with a new production batch. Sadly the new fin is of even worse quality, having already encountered several problems. After not even 10 minutes of use the boots already started to separate from the fin along the sides, getting close to tearing at the same place as the previous fin. It's getting worse every day. Also the strap hook placement has again snapped. All this within 2 weeks of purchase. Disappointing.

    For anyone serious about monofin swimming, avoid the Rapid, or at least this yellow version of it. It's not worth the cost, even at a discounted price.
