    Anyone out there with size 10 Rock boots that can help me with sizing of Jets or turtles?

    Take 'em to your Dive Shop and see if they will let you try them on before you buy.

    That will be the best option I'm sure for the jets, but I would like to try tutles too.

    The Turtles run to bigger sizes than the Jets...of course, now that the Jets have size XXXL, they are kind of the king of "big a** foot pocket". It's what I use for my size 14 feet :)

    I have DUI Rock Boots, size 11. They fit quite snug in XL ScubaPro Jet Fins, although I do have spring straps and that may account for how good the fit is. I've never tried the fin straps that they come with, took them off right after I bought the fins.

    Use Jet XL for size 10.
    Turtles will work too, but more side to side play.

    Fin selection is usually a personal perference. I know some divers who prefer Turtles. I have both, but I prefer the Jets.

    XL Jets for Size 10 feet sounds about right.

    I have size 8 wide feet and use the L size. Very comfortable

    I think I had size 10 or maybe 11 Rock boots on my DUI. They were too big for XL jets, and too small for turtles. I have since put turbo soles on the suit, and got bigger spring straps and they seem to work with XL jets. For size 10 Rock boot, it seems to be hit or miss with XL jets. You really have to try them on. I have heard some people can get them on, others think they are too snug.... YMMV...

    I use turtles With spring straps on my size 10 Rock boots.
    My Xl Jets don't fit over the rockboots to my liking.

    There is another option.
    I have a freind who wears wetsuit booties over the sockfeet of his drysuit. Just so he can wear his Xl Jets.
