Hinge / Pivot Blade Fins
Hinge/Pivot Blade fins are the latest advancement in the long evolution of a scuba diving fin. When the first hinge/pivot fin was released, it took the world by storm and grabbed all the awards. This type of fins are generally manufactured from mononprene material and have a split engineered across the fin. It is argued it is an ultimate combination marriage of a paddle blade fin and a split fin. The split pivot just after the foot pocket generates a power snap which is designed to increase energy transfer and propel diver through the water with better efficiency and less effort. A lot of divers will admit that unlike the split fin, which is not great frog kicker, this type of fin is the best in both worlds. It gives you high power while swimming straight and will also provide low-speed manoeuvrability even in frog kicking mode.
