HYFLEX VESNA PRICE $159 CONTACT tusa.com
The Vesna is a carefree kicker that allows for decent power with minimal exertion. Its flexible design creates a soft kick that scored very well for flutter and surface swimming. The 24-inch blade (size medium) strugged a bit in hard acceleration but proved adept at tight turns and even backing up, earning the highest score for maneuverability in its category. “A lightweight, manueuverable, friendly fin,” was how one test diver summed it up. The ergonomic strap took the top score for adjustability, but test divers with smaller feet found the foot pocket to be a little roomy (even in a size small). The Vesna’s blade can easily be removed from the foot pocket, making the lightweight fin an attractive, travel-friendly option for those who frequent easy-diving destinations.
