    I used to like the original Jet fins but when it came time to replace them the new version had a different foot pocket. I like the OMS slipstream for warm water. For drysuit diving I like the Hollis F1. I think they kick about the same as the slipstreams but are more negative, which I need with 1 lb. ankle weights in the cold water gear. I don't usually do a lot of serious kicking. I'm more of a drift and flick diver. I use a modified frog kick due to limitations in my flexibility. Maybe I should get back to doing yoga. When I do need to push against a current or something like like to have the power available. My choices work for me.
