SCUBAPRO Sunday – Twin Jet Fins

If you have been diving for a while now, you have undoubtedly come across the SCUBAPRO Twin Jet Open Heel Split Fins. They bear a unique patented split fin propeller technology, which provides maximum propulsion with minimal effort underwater.  With those main features, they can enhance your dives while avoiding cramped leg muscles and strained ankles. 

 

The revolutionary patented design of the SCUBAPRO Twin Jet Open Heel Split Fins was inspired by the dynamic propulsion of the humpback whale. The blades unique shape and angle provide symmetrical power to help you create a smoother, more stable kicks without wearing you out or causing drag. At the same time, it allows you to move more quickly and effortlessly while swimming at great depths, despite the long blade length—all without sacrificing control. 

As a diving fin, the SCUBAPRO Twin Jet is made with both an open-heeled and a full-foot version. The Open Heel comes with a broader foot pockets and offers a more customizable fit for those wearing dive boots for use in colder, deeper waters or boots for over the beach operations/ VBSS. Having strapped fins gives you the chance to adjust the fit as your boots start to compress at greater depths when diving.

                     

 

The fin straps come with quick-connect swivel buckles, which makes donning and doffing easier. You can also change the rubber heel strap out, to take advantage of the optional spring heel straps. The SCUBAPRO Twin Jet open-heeled fins are one of the most comfortable fins on the market.

They come in different Colors and Buoyancy Options. SCUBAPRO has kept different types of divers in mind when they designed the Twin Jet Fins line. You’ll find that the fins come in multiple color options—black, blue, gray, and yellow—but it’s also important to note that the different colors signify differences buoyancy also.

The black fins are the best, for military divers, as they are negatively buoyant and provide a more traditional fining experience with its rigid blades. But if you’re looking for more flexible blades and don’t mind having slightly positively buoyant fins.

    As alluded to in the article, these things absolutely suck when wearing a dry suit and trying to swim with doubles and stage bottles. The traditional jet fins are fantastic for this.
