    NO SPLIT FINS ARE BAD YOU WILL DIE! :D :shocked2:

    I never knew what the debate really was, some people dive with Force fins :idk:

    Some people dive with those long ass free diving fins :idk:

    Some people dive with those hard rubber jet fins :idk:

    I use Mares Quattro's :idk:


    :idk: I guess you won't know until you try something :idk:

    Aww man, so much civility. I was hoping for a "fresh" bloodbath in here.

    Guess I'll go poke around in the DIR threads.

    I dive with monofins. Those bad boys displace some serious water.

    tusas cannot move a single kilo. you can fin in them for hours and you might move 1 meter :)

    tried them once, unless you make 10-20 strikes per second you do not move much even in no current :)

    Seems like the oldies/originals wont even glance at splits. My dive instructor(stone age), father, my fathers instruction staff(All 45+), and almost every old person I've seen diving(though not many) all have normal full fins.

    Me(just bought a pair, whoo), and all my friends own splits. The neo-divers are slowly taking over.

    I absolutely love my Mares for warm water, single tank dives. However, they don't work worth a darn when diving dry with doubles and slinging.

    Having said that, my Turtles are horrible for diving warm, single tank dives.

    I think it boils down to using the right tool for the right job.
