Whip Fins™ Customer Reviews
After purchasing the Delfin we encountered another strong current while attempting to enter the Washing Machine in the Exuma Islands, the Bahamas. It is done during the tide change that causes excessive amounts of water to run through a small channel. To enter the channel a strong swim is required against a ripping current. When we entered the water my wife had the same fins that she used in Costa Rica. To my surprise she made little headway toward the entrance of the dive. I had to grab her hand and pull her into the entrance of the channel.
I didn't even think of the fins till we were back on the boat and someone commented on the strange design of my fins. They were behind me during the swim to the entrance of the dive.
Thanks for creating a great fin.
I started swimming toward the shallower portion, making steady and pretty easy headway against the current. However, I had to keep stopping, as the others in the group could not make any headway. This included the divemaster, a much fitter bloke than myself with big freedive fins. We all ended up drifting and putting up a buoy, swept way off the reef. Really frustrating for me - a real case of what would have been an easy dive if only everyone else had been in predator power fins."
My swimming speed has also benefited because these fins seem to cut the water so much better. I can maneuver more precisely too! Because of the efficiency I seem to return to the boat with more air remaining than anyone else. So far I've used these in 56F water in Lake Superior, and 80F water in the Caribbean. Another benefit I've noticed is that you can walk to the boat's exit much easier because these are not as likely to trip you.
So please use this note to promote these fins to the World! They're the best. Thanks for designing these!
