Looking for a new pair of fins for next month. Looking at either the Scubapro Twin Jets or the Atomic Aquatics Split Fin.

Anyone have any experience with iether and where to get these fins the cheapest???

Goback...I have used the split fin design in the past. While they worked as well as other traditional designs, I found that I tended to get shin splints using them. Other people I know have had the same experience, and yet others loved them. For me, there weren't enough benefits over traditional to justify the extra cost.

I really like my Twin Jets. They are the only pair I've owned, though, so not much to compare them too.
I just bought mine from the local shop.

I've never owned split fins - so I cannot give you any advice on that. Instead, I got a pair of Ares Velocity fins last year (a vented fin) - which are just as fast/powerful as the split fin, but handle more like traditional fins (so I like them a lot).

What I'm looking for is a good fin for small, quick flutter style kicking. I have a pair of Mares Avanti Quattro and although they are a great fin they just aren't for me.

I still need to get rid of these before I buy a new pair but was doing some reading on the Atomic Aquatics and the Scubapro.

can't wait to get down to the local shop and kick a few.

We have the apollo bio fins.

About the same price as the ones you are looking at. Shin splints occure when the fins you are using are too stiff. Had that problem with some solid fins, but never had it with these.
