    They're on the site now, scroll down the home page to featured products. Apparently all in indigo, according Susanne and Bob. (and they have one fewer XL than a moment ago...)

    Emesto, I will let others answer your question, to bad they ban Dan Volker from Scuba Board, but made the Hockey fin for a friend Josh. They Banned him from using since he was so fast in them. Just a few in stock till end of year, half gone aready. I will say this Force Fin kicks ass, but you need good legs. Best, Bob

    Some old threads, mostly between hockey and Excelerating.
    Googling 'site: scubaboard hockey' finds more. Mine ship this week. Material changed in the early stages so pay attention to thread dates. There was a post with little 'best for' descriptions of each of the force fins, but I did not find it.

    Dan Volker's Hockey Fin Evaluation
    Looking for a "hail Mary" . . . any news on the hockey fins, Bob?

    Dan suggests Excellerating have better cave level control than Hockey. Hockey being designed for, well hockey, where you are moving with great control, not staying rock still while navigating through lines/wires etc.
    Force Fins and DIR diving

    FF an upgrade from original(Pro?), Excellerating/Hockey better for back and fine control.

    Thanks Bob
    What is the total length of a Hockey fin ?
    Is there any Scuba board discount code on this item ?
    Perhaps I will give it a try , Strong legs = Torpedo Results

    With a few in stock no reason for a discount, but your a special customer and we will do some thing on our end, not on Scubaboard..get my drift. Best, Bob
