Force Fin .... Is like doing surface swim.

Use your calf & soften your ankle ... dont need to move the much of your leg.

The trick is from your calves to your ankle only.... fin slowly.

Good training is to do surface swim with your back in the water ..... that is how is done.

;D

The three muske'force' hehee now u can add one, thanks Snafu for the info, i think im gnna get used to it, so less leg movement....i will try.

Yup, ill try dekat pool, but still need to know the style of kicking. Feels like 'tapak kasut tercabut' when finning.

Cheers meers.

Do you know how much does a Force fin cost? I have not seen them sold in Malaysia....

Is this a secret pair of fins for the "special" ppl only?


I know the mascot uses force fins too... it must be really good then....

hmm.. it's force fin better than conventional fin? :P

i just read it somewhere, saying that it says

No toe squeeze. No calf fatigue.
Force Fin´s toes-free foot pocket reduces cramping and leverages power from your strongest kicking muscles

true ah?

coz the problem now with my fin is that... my ankle/calf tired lah.. sometimes if got current, i keep kicking until i cry... but still not moving   >:( :( :'( .. thinking of using a softer... normal cheap fin :P to ease the situation... but now i got to know this force fin.. wondering will it ease the situation better ?  :-/
cheers...

according to Sheik, he said that it lessens his cramps.... i tend to have cramps every so often when i am diving thus after Sheik's comments - i am contemplating getting a pair for myself...
Apparently, the cramps has not happened since he changed to force fins.
Sheik, is this true???

I know that the fins are expensive but if they are that good.. then i would like to try it..... sheik, what size are you using? maybe i can borrow to try it out???

Apparently, FORCE FINS PRO are selling for about SGD400 in Singapore.
