Aqua Lung Slingshot - Editor's Pick - March 2009
The only fin on the market with a three-speed transmission. And yes, it's a stick.
Unique silicone Power Bands help keep long paddle blades in tension. On each kick cycle, the bands stretch to store energy and then release it just before the upstroke for an added boost of power. The blade itself hinges at the midpoint of the foot pocket, which not only provides a wide range of motion but also reduces foot and leg strain while kicking. The fin's Power Bands are also adjustable. Three settings are available so divers can fine-tune performance to best suit dive conditions as well as their own leg strength. A well-shaped foot pocket is built for both comfort and security and easily handles all types of dive boots.
