When someone says the word "Slingshot", most people gain mental images of something moving fast and adeptly. Those images are key to Aqua Lung's new Slingshot Fins. The Slingshot Fins will help you move through the water with Speed and Ease you never thought possible. These Fins brag of having Power Bands, which are basically Coiled Energy waiting to Spring-into-Action as you Fin. Pure Silicone Power Bands are Loaded-with-Energy on the Power Stroke. They Release their Energy Prior-to-the-Upstroke to provide an Added Boost of Power. Instead of Wasting your Energy, you Accumulate-it-and-Reclaim it! Power Bands Lessen Fatigue and Add Thrust.

The Mid-Foot Joint Increases the Slingshot's Flexibility, which will make each Kick more Efficient and Comfortable, partially due to the fact it move the source of your Kicks from the Front of your Foot to the Entire Leg. This takes the Strain off of the Toes and the Top of the Ankle. The result is a Dramatic Improvement in Comfort. You can now use the Entire Foot to Power the Fin. This provides the Blade a Significantly Larger Range of Motion, often up to 5 times that of a conventional fin.

Finally, much like a Car or High-End Bicycle has a Gear Shift, so do the Slingshot Fins. The Gear Shift allows you choose one of three Settings to Control your Energy and Effort Levels in Response to your Diving Conditions.  Easy to Shift During-the-Dive, the three Settings can be made even with Gloves. Because these Fins contain Harnessed Energy and an Ingenious Design, you'll experience Less Fatigue and Joint Pain and more Enjoyment than you would wearing any other fins. The Slingshot Fins come equipped with Adjustable Fin Straps with  Squeeze-Style" Quick-Release Buckles and the Straps have a Large Pull-Tab for Ease of Donning and Doffing. These Open Heel Non-Vented Fins are available in 3 sizes of Small, Medium or Large/X-Large and are available in Silver/Black or Silver/Blue colors. The Slingshot Fins are covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
  • A semi-rigid, technopolymer blade has an excellent spring effect for maximized thrust
  • Blade ribs are made of two different elastomeric compounds and provide precise flex control
  • Silicone Power Bands are loaded with energy during the down stroke, which they release prior to the upstroke for a power boost on every kick
  • Three-Speed Gear Shift allows divers to dial in Power Band resistance for their body type or changing diving conditions, and adjustments can be made while wearing the fin
