I disagree on the split fins..If you can hop in a pool with a pair of split fins. Wear dive gear and then try them..If you are used to using short quick kicks you might like them..This style of kicking uses more energy which means higher air consumption.. If you use a long slow power stroke, the you will be more efficient.. For this style of kicking you will use less energy and get better air consumption..Also, try dragging a tired diver with gear on in a current..For me they don't work...I know alot of instructors use them ..The jet fins are awesome..That is what the USCG and Navy Divers use...While MBT is a great shop..we are fortunate to have TWO great shops in town..You can stop by Dive Pros, bring your suit hop in their heated on site pool and try the different styles before buying.. The BEST decision is an INFORMED one..and remember ..what works for one person, may not work for YOU !! Enjoy and goodluck..
