Hollis Yellow Tip 2XL fins for sale or trade

Post by LowDrag » Thu May 21, 2015 6:17 pm

Hey everyone...I just bought a USIA drysuit and these fins are too big for the boots so I have to down size a fin size.

So what I am looking to do is either sell these fins to get a pair XL jets or other Hollis F1's OR make a trade with someone who has a comparable pair of jets or F1's. I have about 25 - 30 dives maybe a little more on these fins and they have some surface scuffs and scratches on them as one might expect. I will post pic's below look at what I have.

These fins retail for $209.95 brand new, I would like to about $150 OBO for them if I could or like I said above trade for a comparable pair of XL Jet fins.

I previously wore White's EvoIII rock boots and I wear a size 11 shoe so IIRC correctly the rock boots are size 12.

Thanks,
Dave

F1s can easily be found for $170 new. $150 is a bit high for used fins, even if they're in good condition.

No worries Spatman, we're all good. I would still be interested in a solid trade if someone is interested. I am not concerned that the fins are scratched up just useable.

You can move the strap one slot closer.
I did that to my 2XL Hollis fins and they worked perfect I felt the regular XL size was a little too tight.

I use the 2xls for both 11/12 and 12/13 Whites Rock Boots. And even still need to regularly silicon spray the inside and they get rather stuck in there sometimes.

I slipped the fins on with my new USIA built in boots and the fins are really floppy. I didn't like that all.

I remember the boots on my old USIA to be very narrow. I can see why the 2xl are so floppy.

I have a pair of AquaLung XL fins that I use in warm water and my USIA boots fit that fin pocket perfectly. I have always like my shoes a little on the snug side so this works out great.

I use the XLarge size with my USIA with the new style boots, they fit just a bit snug.
