First I would like to say Hydro has 2, Tech 2 models to choose from one known as "Ocean" or "Powertube", the other "Training" or "Swim", I found this confusing at first as it was not listed anywhere that there are in fact 2 versions of the Tech 2 fin. The Ocean version of Tech 2 can be identified by the word "Powertube" written in raised letters along the "V" edge of the fin and the word "Tech 2" in white below the T2 logo on the top of the fin. The Training version can be identified by the word "Training" written in raised letters along the "V edge of the fin and the word "Swim 2" in white below the T2 logo on the top of the fin. That said the differences are that the Ocean version costs about $20- more, however is a bit larger about 1" in length and a bit wider giving more thrust per kick, also the Ocean model has a wide clearing tube built on the bottom of the fin intended to drain out any sand that is caught in the foot bed. The Training version is intended for use as a training...
I've been bodyboarding and body surfing for 6 years now. Started with the Tech 2s and always will. I've tried all of my friends' and family's fins, and I always stick with the tech 2s. I've lost a few pairs over the years (yes I use fin tethers, big Hawaiian north shore surf will actually rip the tethers off), and I always consider buying other brands like Vipers etc. The one time I did I suffered greatly. I am 5'11" about 180 and wear a size 12 Nike. My feet are a little wide, and these fins fit perfectly in XL. Every other fin is tight and makes my feet sore after half an hour. With the Tech 2s I can surf all day (in 6 hours of surf I'm not even thinking about my feet, I'm usually just hungry). I now am buying multiple pairs in different size so that friends can try them out. Yes they are the best fin I've ever used, and I've tried them all. I only hope they will always be in business. Worth every penny.
These fins are mainly for body boarding. They make you very quick off the line. I took these to playa del carmen and they worked like they were supposed to. I am a size 12 mens and I ordered the XL. They are a good fit with little play. I had to order another pair since my gf is a size 8.5 and she needed a medium instead of small.
- good response to kick change - nice drain holes in the front to get out sand - silicon is much softer than my old churchills - good for sprinting - light colors are nice so they dont get hot (although if you want to they make tons of colors) - not meant for long distance although its a good workout if you want to snorkel with them - probably a good idea to get leashes just in case you are wearing a lot of sunscreen and the silicon get slippery
