    Interesting. The new ScubaPro Go Sport has skegs, said to "improve stability and trailing edge rigidity" Where have I heard this before?

    I have a pair on order and should be here in few weeks (sea freight :) ) I can't wait to try them. I'll be using them when I am teaching in the pool and ow. I ordered the yellow however.

    Let us know how you do, these sound like good travel fins.

    I will but it will take few more weeks since they are being shipped via sea freight. I don't think that they will arrive here for at least another month.

    You probably know that they are an improved version of the older Go fins that were made to be worn barefoot. The new version was modified to allow wearing boots with the fins and they are supposed to be better fins. SP told me that they can be worn in local environment and will do well in currents and will provide sufficient propulsion when wearing heavier kit. I asked for clarification before I placed the order to make sure that they will take the work in my diving environment (we wear 5, 7 mm, semi dry and even drysuits here in Libya depending on the time of the year. Water temps vary between 16 - 29 C depending on time of the year).

    They work amazingly well and have replaced my Eddy’s for local cold water in Monterey, I also have the original GO’s for warm water but these will likely fill that role too for any warm shore diving.

    That is awesome news. You mean that they work better than the D6 Eddy's fins? Are you diving with a wetsuit or dry?

    Drysuit, they are very versatile, my buddy who used bat fins and is an excellent frog kicker can’t out run me underwater and can’t keep up on the surface when we swim out.

    Wow!!

    I was thinking until now that they will suck when wearing a heavy kit. You have made me happy and excited about the fins. I can't wait for them to arrive.

    They weren’t made to improve or replace the GO, the GO Sport is just a boot version of the GO, but indeed it has some differences, like a wider side “walls” for example, that make it a very attractive option to the heavy Jets. For cold water, dry suit diving I’d stick with the Jets, but for warm water in a wetsuit I’d like to replace my OMS with the GO Sport, I’ll be trying a pair very soon.

    The engineer in South Africa has been coming out with some really cool stuff and work they’re doing with monprene products, there’s a new batch of gear to be released I look forward to excitedly, including some fresh look at how we do BP/wings

    They are a "boot version" of the go with lots of improvements over the Go. They weren't meant, and I never said, to replace the original Go fins. Each model has its user and market.


    New products coming from SP including a new version of a BP/Wings, all from SP??
