All it took was watching the tail fins of fish – except that we couldn't keep up with them because our traditional fins took too much effort. Using hard kicking paddle fins can result in leg strain, fatigue and cramping. Because of the kick resistance of a paddle fin, divers often “felt” like they were moving fast. But underwater speedometers proved that these divers were actually moving relatively slow. SplitFins deliver more propulsion with less drag and kick with less effort. Reducing the stress and strain of the kick results in greater sustained speed, power and comfort. Independent testing has also confirmed that the SplitFin design significantly reduces air consumption. Splitfins come in a variety of shapes, sizes and stiffness. These contribute greatly to overall comfort and performance. A fin with short, soft blades will kick easier than a longer, stiffer one, but will require many more kicks to travel the same distance. A blade that is too stiff will require too much effort to kick comfortably. The Atomic SplitFins were specifically designed to optimize all these variables. They are easy kicking fins that deliver high thrust, speed, and efficiency with a comfortable, low frequency kick cycle.

I have had these fins now for almost two years andI absolutely love them. From the first time I got in the water with them to this day I couldn't image using any other fin. I feel I get more power per kick, I use less air, and with the added spring straps they are a breeze to get on and off. I don't even notice I'm wearing them while diving, The one thing I would note is the strap posts are a non standard size. If you need replacement straps or you want to go with spring straps you have to get Atomic specific ones. Not a big deal because they are priced the same as the others, but if you are traveling and you break a strap you better hope there is an Atomic dealer close buy if you don't carry spares with you. In short carry spares.... (Posted on 11/1/2018)

Took these to key west. I get cramps a lot in my Cressies and was looking for a split fin to try and cut down on the debilitating and time draining cramping while diving. Most of the fin that initially attracted me were shorter so I was unsure with the length on these which is similar to my existing fins. Based on the reviews on different sites I decided to give these a try and although we did have some drift I did notice a big difference and did not cramp up at all. I hardly noticed that they were even on when in the water and am super excited about reducing the possibility of leg cramps in the future now that I have these bad boys. They are expensive but you get what you pay for and in this case I feel the investment was well worth it. I also saved on the manufacturer advertised price so in my mind this was a win win. I would recommend these to other divers with similar leg cramping issues. (Posted on 11/1/2018)

I've been envying my son's and daughter-in-law's fins for too long! Mine were OK, but they've warped pretty badly over the past few years and even though I've tried everything to straighten them out, it hasn't worked. The Atomic Aquatics split fins don't seem to warp even after months of storage in a flexed position and they are very efficient in terms of the amount of effort required to produce useful thrust.

Granted, I'm no expert SCUBA diver, but I really like these fins, especially the innovative straps, which make putting on and slipping off the fins extremely easy, almost effortless. Great quality, which I continue to find with all products that I've purchased from Atomic Aquatics. Highly recommended. (Posted on 11/1/2018)

Outstanding Fins Review by History Buff

Used my new set of fins in Saba last week. I especially appreciated the ease of putting on the Atomic Aquatics Smoke fins while sitting on the back of the boat prior to entering the water, and later of easily removing them at the end of the dive while in the water as I avoided the pitching boat's ladder to hand the fins to the crew on the boat. At depth, the fins afford streamlined movement with small flutter kicks and minimal exertion. (Posted on 11/1/2018)
and I love the look of them and the easy releases Review by Tim Burnett

I purchased some red ones, and I love the look of them and the easy releases. The only problem is they run on the large side.
I wear size 12 men's shoes so I ordered the X-Large as it says 11.5 - 13 and my heel didn't even stick out an inch.

Aside from the size snafu they are beautiful fins and I cant wait to get the right size and try them out, my other set are Oceanic V-16 splits but they run on the smaller side and hurt my feet.

Ill update my review once I get the proper size and a chance to try them out in the water.

*** Update ***
I got in the correct size, and they fit my feet perfect. No discomfort and they are great in the water. No cramps and I like them more than my Oceanic V-16's (Posted on 11/1/2018)
Best fins in 40 years of diving. Review by John M. Kohler
Quality

These are the best power to weight ratio fins I've used in 40 years of diving,
and I've owned a lot of the classic and more advanced recent fin designs.

Power and flexibility with every kick, very handy fins to put on in a crowded
dive boat, and easy to take off near the ladder. The colors are also more
vivid than the photos suggest, which make them fun to photograph in bright
tropical waters and also make them great for finding your dive buddy
in murky low visibility water. Highly Recommended. (Posted on 11/1/2018)
