    Modern swim/dive fins

    Hi, check out these new swim fins, that were constructed 2 years ago, do you think that these fins would be worth their price? (about 300-400$)
    These were constructed for navy special forces,do you think they could be use in any other stuff ?

    You could get a much better fin for much less...how many people need foldable fins?

    Looks like a bunch of arse.

    What's the point in a foldable fin like that? I mean, I could see the benefit of the one where the blade folds up in front of your shin so you can walk, but these still stick out in front to trip over.

    Hey, it looks like Flipfins make a "Special Forces"TM version of their fins too!
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    It's an interesting idea but it's a bit of a niche market. I doubt that amateurs like us need the fold up trick as my stubby little Force Fins probably take up less space. When you come down to it narrowing the fin when it's not in use doesn't actually save you much.
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.
