Aqua Lung, the leader in SCUBA diving products, has introduced the Slingshot, their most innovative fin yet that provides more power, versatility, and comfort.
Unlike anything on the market, the Slingshot offers increased power and propulsion, as well as unparalleled comfort and easy-to-adjust settings that determine the thrust of each kick. Its pioneering technology will help propel divers with little effort saving energy and lengthening underwater stay.
The Slingshot features three innovations: Power Bands, the Gear Shift, and the Mid-Foot Attachment Points
Power BandsKnown as power bands, these silicone straps capture all the energy of the downstroke (powerstroke) and then immediately snap back, creating powerful propulsion that's much more efficient than other fins on the market and help divers save their energy.
Gear Shift The Gear Shift gives the diver complete control of power under any condition. The diver can shift to one of three settings in order to choose the speed-to-effort ratio, allowing him to go from cruising speed in tranquil waters, to a forceful thrust in strong currents. The Slingshot adjusts, quickly (and underwater), to the various circumstances that can occur.
Mid-Foot Attachment Points The blade attaches to the foot further back on the foot pocket rather than at the toes, alleviating pressure on the front of the foot and reducing strain on the ankle, while allowing all the power to transmit from the leg to the fin.
The Slingshot comes in three colors: blue, black/silver, and red, and is available in sizes small, medium and large/extra-large. The Slingshot is now available from all Aqua Lung dealers across the country and retails for $219. For specific stores carrying Aqua Lung products, log onto www.aqualung.com or call (760) 597-5000.
