For those divers or snorkelers who enjoy trekking the world to find the best dive spots, weight is always a factor when packing one’s dive bag. When it comes to fins, ScubaPro might have an answer.
The company recently introduced its new GO fin, an open-heel fin with a replaceable, self-adjusting bungee heel strap. You can wear it either fully barefoot or with neoprene socks.
It’s made of 100-percent “Monprene” which the company says reduces delamination, broken blades and torn foot pockets that other fins tend to be plagued with. The GO fin is constructed with a 25-degree pre-angled blade and sports a “Central Power Panel” that creates a “channeling effect” and gives the diver “longitudinal rigidity,” according to ScubaPro.
GO fins are also lightweight and travel-friendly. A pair of Medium-to-Large-size fins weighs in at 1.2 kg/2.6 lbs, including the bungee straps. Additionally, the fins’ compactness allow them to fit easily in a carry-on bag. This is possible because of what ScubaPro calls the “Piggy Back Stack” system that allows the fins to hook onto each other.
The GO fins retail at US$69/61 Euros. For more information, go to the company’s website at ScubaPro.com.
