    We have been implementing COVID restrictions for almost 40 years while diving - we always were masks! :)

    I usually scoot around with a camera rig, 2 strobes on extensions, etc. I have had to tow people before. FFins have never left me needing more power. I have doubles but have not used them in awhile, haven't had any problems with power there either. I'm 105 kg, 183cm.

    => that's a good one ! :D

    => it seems very not too different as far as bulk is concerned, and obviously your FFins never let you down.

    So, a pair of Adjustable Force Fins should be the best solution for me : not too different from my FF Pro with the advantage of the adjustable foot pocket.

    Bob, it seems I'll placing an order very soon :wink:

    So I've guessed, but I think the adjustable ones are the best for me (will go with any rock boots) and unless I'm very much mistaken, they're basically FF Pro with a foot pocket. If I'm wrong, I'm sure Bob will correct me.

    I believe the adjustable is only as wide as the XL. I don't recommend it for a Drysuit boot. XXXL with bungie is the way to go. More power than you will need

    My problem has more to do with the length of the pocket than with the width, that why I was considering an adjustable foot pocket.

    Maybe Bob will be kind enough to give us some advice ?

    I don't understand, FF are effectively length agnostic. You said your a big dude, but what size and style of boot do you where?

    Shoe size : French 44 / UK 11-12, plus heavy socks under my dry suit, plus rock boots. So far, I can't fit that into my XXL FF Pro.

    Talk about BIG FOOT. Not sure the Adjustable Dive Force Fin will work. I do make a xxxl Force Fin. Feeling kind of brain dead lately, wearing a mask all the time has cut off my oxygen supply.. Now they want us to use Duck Tape. California. feet.jpg
