I thought folks might find this photo helpful in understanding the Voit fin models.
Top row: new flexi models. Lower row: models we’ve had for awhile now.
Left to right: UDT, V-Duck, and Duckfeet.
V-Ducks replaced my long-time favorite summer fin (Toobs Bluntcuts) last Spring… performance is similar and they fit more comfortably.
My favorite “big fin” has been the Duckfeet.
Comparing the old/new:
Recall how stiff the UDT’s heel strap was? The strap on the new UDTs is a lot more pliable. And the flexi UDT is not as fatiguing as it used to be. This is super promising - I’ll be spending more time with these.
The difference between the old and new Duckfeet is interesting. Flexing them by hand shows a considerable difference, but in the water they don’t seem that different… until you want to get moving right NOW. The flexi ones feel like they’re “geared” a bit lower, if that makes sense? I feel they start-up a little quicker, and then don’t cruise quite as well. I’m going to stay with the older Duckfeet, but there are folks who will prefer the flexi ones.
The molds haven’t changed – if Voits fit you in the past, so will the new ones.
Weight is a toss-up between the new and old.
Color choices: Just what you see in the photo.
