Don't Let The Price Fool You. This Fin Is Packed With Pretty Amazing Technology! It's pretty incredible to see how unique these fins are when it comes to traveling. The new Supernova Fin allows you to reduce the size for traveling. Just remove the connector and separate these fins, and they pack easily. Just make sure you don't lose those little connectors. One of the neat things that ScubaPro was smart about doing with the set of fins was you get a tool to take that little joint out, and also they gave you in the tool they gave you a few extras of those inserts to put in there.

Adjustability is another feature these fins offer. ScubaPro provides a Tool to make it easy to pop the cover off of the buckle to expose a pin so you can move into three positions. ScubaPro ships these in the middle position, so you can take it out and move it forward if you want this strap to be slightly snugger, or you can move it back to make it looser. The heel strap includes a large Hoop to Hook your finger in, which is great for when you are trying to get up a boat ladder and take your fins off. That's one of the reasons we enjoy having the hoop.

The Supernova has Large Rails with winglets at the tip of the blade which makes a huge difference when you kick this fin it tends to keep its shape much better. When you turn it over you will also notice the back of the fin continues this design and that there are
guides on the fin to help keep the water from Rolling off when you are in an up-kick.

Supernova has the accordion built into the struts and the struts are much thicker than previous models. When you do your kick what it ends up doing is it closes or goes into a position and then it stops to put the blade in the best position or angle of attack.
So what ScubaPro did was create slots all the way through the foot pocket that lets the water out and when you pull your foot out of the foot pocket you don't have the suction that you did with the older fins.
