Product Description
 
Traditional Design! Thereís a reason U.S. Military Personnel have made ISTís exclusive F1 Deep Sea Scuba Diving Military Rubber Rocket Fins their choice time after time. IST puts it all together in a no-nonsense fin: fit, style, speed, thrust, propulsion, power and price. The F-1ís special blade curvature and tapered blade flexibility produces super-positive thrust and unheard-of flexibility. Even more thrust is attained by 3 deep vents which force water backwards, emulating the effect of three synchronized water jets.

The F-1 is excellent for open water dive missions, but also shows its skill in assisting diver- maneuverability within confined spaces. As you would expect and demand of a military fin, the F-1 is durable and long-lasting; compatible with ISTís famous Universal clamp stainless steel coil spring fin strap.

Time after time, U.S. Military personnel, and the U.S. Navy call on Seavenger to deliver their fin of choice, the F1. Find out why for yourself!

Answer With big booties, will need 3XL fins
With small booties, will need XXL fins




Question I wear a size 13 us. I would like 3mm boots with good sole and toe cap, and these fins, what would you recommend I get for the sizes of each. I also have wide feet. Thanks!
Answer We do recommend size 3XL.




Question Hi there, I purchased size 9 Mares 2mm Equator Dive Boots and I was wondering what size fins to get? Thanks.
Answer It's small booties, therefore we recommend size LARGE.




Question I wear size 8 men's shoes, what fin size do I use?. Thank you.
Answer If you wear big booties, you will need size XLarge fins. If you wear small booties, you will need size Large fins.




Question So im a mens shoe size 10 US, im wondering what size and type of booties i should get and what size fins because I dont really have much of an idea about what to get and what will fit more snugly in the water.
Answer Which type of booties depends on your preference. Small booties are softer and does not have toe cap. Big booties have toe caps and you may walk on rocks with those. If you decide to go with small booties, we recommend the XL fins. If you decided to go with big booties, we recommend the XXL fins.




Question I'm a male and wear size 8 shoes. What size fin do I need and I prepared to wear booties.
Answer If you plan to wear small booties, then we recommend size LARGE for fins. If you plan to wear the big booties, then we recommend size XLARGE for fins.




Question 1) I like the 3mm Low cut Tropical Boots on your web site. My shoe size is
10.5E (wide) in US system so should I order the
Tropical Boot in size XL?

2) I would like to use the Tropical Boots with these Rubber Rocket Fins.
For a Tropical Boot of size XL, What size should I specify to when ordering
these Rubber Rocket Fins -- XL or XXL?

The tropical boot is 3mm which would make it a small bootie --but it has a
toe cap which might make it a "big bootie". Which is it?

3) If instead of the Tropical Boot, I order the 3mm Titanium hydro + beach boot (in size 11)
, then should I consider the Beach Boot a "small bootie" and order the
Rubber Rocket Fins in size XL? I.e, What size of Rubber Rocket Fin would
work best with a 3mm Beach Boot in US size 11?

Answer 1. XL would be a good fit, it's considered small booties
2. XL for the fins
3. The beach boot is considered small booties; and XL fins will suffice.




Question My Shoe size is 8, what size Fin I need.
Can I use the FIN without one ( I prefer not to use Booties)

Answer It's better to wear the boots with the rocket fins.




Question I wear a size 8 in boots. I know you have a size chart but I am not sure what I will need for this Style fin (Rubber rocket). What size fin would you recommend for a size 8 and what size booties what you recommend? Along with this do you wear boots with these fins or just booties? Thanks
Answer If by boots, you mean high cut booties with a toe and heel cap, you would take a size XL. Or, if you mean a thinner low cut neoprene small bootie without toe cap, you would take a size L in this fin. Either way, you can wear a small or large bootie.




Question I need a pair of these for pararescue training. I wear a 12.5 shoe. What size fins and boots should I get? And brand of boot?
Answer http://seavenger.com/classic-open-heel-with-larger-foot-pocket-p-1173.html

Your foot size will not fit the fin you reference; we recommend the above fin which has a bigger foot pocket, size XXL. We also recommend a big bootie with toe cap size 12. Here are examples of boots that sound like they would work:
http://seavenger.com/3mm-titanium-vulcanized-sole-with-toe-heel-caps-p-1100.html
http://seavenger.com/65mm-titanium-vulcanized-sole-with-toe-heel-caps-p-1328.html




Question I just got my order in the mail and these fins are VERY wide. Should they be so wide? Or do I need to go down a size? I'm size 9 and I got the XL because my booties are thick.
Answer We recommend a size XL if you are a size 9 and using big booties with a big toe cap and thick sole. If the size 9 is loose on you, you may want to exchange them for a size L, or consider a boot such as this if yours are not as substantial:
http://seavenger.com/3mm-titanium-vulcanized-sole-with-toe-heel-caps-p-1100.html

Question I'm looking at purchasing these fins to use with my float tube to fly fish. I plan to put the fins over my stocking foot waters (no boot) and I wear a size 11 shoe. Will this fin work over my stocking foot waders and what size should I purchase.
Answer We don't carry stocking foot waders, but from what we can tell from research, the stocking foot is like a neoprene sock and, if so, the size XXL should accommodate the fin and stocking foot in your size.

if so what size should I get?

Answer This fin that your looking at, the biggest size is a XXL, and we have tried to fit a size 11 boots in it, and it is way too small, So a size 12 will not fit, Here is a very similar one,

http://seavenger.com/classic-open-heel-with-larger-foot-pocket-p-1173.html

Even though I've only been swimming with these twice, I can already feel how great these fins improve my speed without fins. At first, my ankles hurt after 500m in the pool and it took me a long time to swim the distance since they are reasonably heavy. Yet, the second time I jumped in the pool, my ankles weren't hurting as bad and I was going much faster. Of course I wear socks instead of boots. Overall, these are great for improving speed, cardio, and muscular strength. I look forward to more swims with these in the future.

I bought two pairs of these fins.One set for me and the other for my son for an abalone dive trip.They were to replace my now 20 plus year old jet fins which I loved and hated to get rid of.The new fins worked great and fit nicely.Actually fit better the my old "one size fits all" by Scuba Pro.Very manueverable with good thrust when needed.Much like the military uses in rescues,etc. My son also agreed and said they were much better then the longer,stiffer fins for freediving.The straps could be a little more beefy,but all in all a great fin for the money.I'm 63 years old and have had well over 400 freedives and tanking.This was my sons(24yo) first abalone dive.We both did great using these fins.They are a good affordable all around fin.
