    Pair of US Diver Super Rocket fins
    -Good condition; a few shallow scratches
    -Steel spring straps
    -Size (none marked on fins) I wear a US size 10-11 shoe with 3mm or 7mm booties
    -Color BLACK
    Basically Scubapro Jet fins. I've heard that the Rockets came out before the Jets (??) but that Beuchat had the original patent. I honestly don't know if that's true. I DO know (having owned the SP Jet fins) that in the water they're (US Diver & SP) the same.

    Pair of Scubapro Gorillas
    -multiple scratches but nothing too deep or that affects performance
    -Homemade bungee straps. Strap clips included, & I MAY have the old straps. IF I do I'll include them.
    -Size Large
    -Color BLACK

    $30 plus ACTUAL shipping and PP fees. Local pickup (Levittown NY) preferred but will ship. Buyer pays ACTUAL shipping from 11756.
    Questions welcome!

    Jet fins were first in the US market

    US Diver Rockets fins followed a year or so later along with the Sportsways 707 fins etc

    I've heard that, too. I've probably heard a claim that every version was the first. I saw a video that showed the Beuchat patent ~1964.

    BTW-the SP Jets were the first fins that I ever owned. What's kind of amazing is that THAT doesn't "date" me. I could have bought them in ~1967 or yesterday! A truely revolutionary design!
