Aqua Lung is excited to offer Slingshot - a revolutionary fin that will take the dive world by storm. The Slingshot™ will make diving more comfortable, efficient and fun. Its innovations include Power Bands, Gear Shift and Mid-foot Flex Joint that all add up to provide a wonderful diving experience.
Features of Slingshot:
Pure silicone Power Bands are loaded with energy on the power stroke. They release their energy prior to the upstroke to provide an added boost of power.
Instead of wasting your energy, you accumulate it and reclaim it!
Power bands lessen fatigue and add thrust.
3-speed Gear Shift customizes your speed to effort ratio to fit the specific conditions of your dive.
Three different settings are available.
Easy to shift during the dive, even with gloves.
Mid-foot Flex Joint
The blade is attached to the foot pocket using two Mid-foot Flex Joint.
This takes the strain off of the toes and the top of the ankle. The result is a dramatic improvement in comfort .
You can now use the entire foot to power the fin rather than just the front half of the foot .
Provides the blade a significantly larger range of motion, often up to 5 times that of a conventional fin.
The following Care and Maintenance information is provided for products that do not have a specific owner's manual and is intended as a general guide for basic care and maintenance of your Scuba Equipment.
Fin Care and Maintenance
Care Before and During the Dive
Avoid standing your fins on the tips of the blades for any extended period of time.
Avoid hot temperatures and hot surfaces as these can damage the fin.
Avoid placing the fins in a car trunk on hot days as the temperatures inside car trunks can exceed the temperature tolerances of the fin and the blades may distort.
Care After the Dive:
Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and towel dry before final storage.
Store in a cool, dry and protected place out of direct sunlight.
Avoid any contact with alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
Do not use any type of alcohol, solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part.
