Rated 2 out of 5 by Sally 57 finis swim fins
Fins were comfortable. They did not have enough propulsion to swim laps. Only felt I was working my legs when swimming on my back or side. I returned them because they did not work for me and my goals

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pearl Girl Great Flippers
Purchased these after researching the various types of flippers. I swim laps in a lane at the local pool. Not into speed but the research I did indicated that THESE flippers were more geared toward building leg muscle than speed which is exactly what I wanted (although they do allow you to swim faster). Easy to get on and off and they float, too, so you can't lose them in the pool! Plus, how can you not love the "duck" look?!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by John Good for leg exercise, poor for zooming.
My pool at home is only 35 feet end to end. If I got flippers that propelled me rapidly, I would be conking my head on either end of the pool. With no fins, my legs really don't get much exercise. These fins give good resistance to my leg motion, yet do not propel me rapidly. If you want fins for open water fast propulsion, these are the wrong fins. Their poor efficiency is actually what makes them ideal for my purpose.
