    Hello Folks

    I am on the hunt for a pair of the Scubapro Jet Fins in Orange, preferably size XL.

    Does anyone have any knowledge on where I could purchase? I have reached out to a few shops in Asia.

    Cheers!

    Orange is not a normal color listed in the catalog, therefore Scubapro offers them as a special order every couple of years or so. Shops/operators are sent a message asking how many of the special order fins and colors do they want. After the replies are received Scubapro places the order for manufacturing of the fins. It usually takes several months before the fins become available. So, you’ll have to shop around, perhaps even contact dive shops that sell Scubapro to see if they have a pair in stock. You can also try online sight such as eBay, Amazon, or you may get lucky here on SB. Good luck.

    I have reached out to tech diving limited to see if they have any in stock.

    Waiting on replies from Asian stores if they have any also.

    I am aware of the pre-order, I missed it by 3 days last year.

    Many shades of orange look like brownish-mustard at depth. I wonder how these would look.

    These are a nice alternative if you can't find the jets you want: Deep 6 Eddy Flippers They're closer to neutrally buoyant than jets which I guess is a benefit or drawback depending on perspective. I own a pair of these and like them. The foot pocket is different from Jets, I had to replace my scubapro booties with something else in order to get a good fit.

    Yeah, I have used the RK3s which are similar, but I prefer the heavier Jet. Thanks though!

    was it the HD or regular rk3? HD version is more negative and stiffer, not a bad option if you want orange.
