The difference: Split fins are designed to cut through currents and eliminate leg cramps.  Blade fins AKA Paddle fins have a higher kick resistance and require more kick cycles to travel the same distance as a diver wearing Split fins. They also create more drag which requires more kicking and more effort, causing higher air consumption and cramping. 

Atomic Split fins optimize performance by finding the perfect balance of stiffness, shape, and size.

To maximize the benefit of the Split fin use a smaller, more frequent flutter kick. This saves energy and creates less drag when diving. Tests done on the split fin have proven that they can reduce air consumption leading to longer, more enjoyable dives.

Plus Atomic Split Fins come in all kinds of colors!
