Has anybody tried these out? Think they used to go by the name Teleoz.
I would be very intereseted in feedback... I'm looking to get a new pair for tropical diving and have tried on several full foots. So far, the tusa xperts seem to fit the best.

If they are the ones with the big flat blade and the waterski type bootie that straps on your foot that came out around 5 or so years ago---RUN AWAY!!!

Those were the worst fins I ever put on my foot. Dangerous in my opinion (and I like Zeagle products). No control or power with these fins. A friend who had them on had to hold hands with another diver in a current, because she could not negotiate it with those fins!!! This is a diver who is an istructor with about 30 years of diving experience.

SCARY FINS--don't go there.

If you want a lightweight great travel fin--buy the oceanic caribes. They don't look like they are an amazing fin, they don't cost a lot (less than $50), but they are a totally kick butt fin!!! Also the MOST comfortable full-foot fin I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot of fins--I was one of the fin testers for ScubaLab for several years).

Here's the quote from the Scubadiving Scubalab fintest article when they were tested:

"A DIFFERENT KIND OF FIN

Zeagle Teleoz
The Teleoz was the orange among apples in our fin tests. Sandal-like straps atop a flat, board-like blade produced a fin that was slippery when we walked with them, unstable at depth and borderline useless in a strong current. This fin represents a completely different category of fin design--travel fins--and we plan to review them head-to-head in a future issue."



Good luck!

I have used the fins quite often and have had no reall issue with them. My wife and I have used them for travel many times and never had any of the issues described above, but I would agree that they aren't great fins for strong currents. However, if you are taking a trip to St Croix or the Caymans, they are excellent fins, in my opinon....and yes, they are a bit different than a "traditional" fin.

My dive buddy really likes his and has used them for several years. I envy how well they pack, he can get all his dive kit in a backpack except for his BC.

One other thing...they're really easy to remove on the tag line or ladder...just pull the velcro.

my quattros occupy a special place in my suitcase and hold and help protect some of my other gear. I don't leave home without them.
