So, what do you need to know?
Well, the Apeks RK3 is an open heeled fin that comes in a couple of different colours (black and white). I always lean towards an open heel fin because I’d rather wear neoprene booties (probably influenced by the fact I typically dive in cold waters).
The blade is vented and this is designed to minimise the resistance on your upstroke.
The blade length is from 400-499mm and the Apeks RK3 fins weigh between 1.75kg and 2kg per pair depending on size.
Apeks RK3 – Our Review
A comfortable fit, I was happy in the fins for the duration of the two dives I used them for.
However, they really would benefit from a quick release buckle. The buckle in general was a little fidgety.
That said, they come with spring straps as standard and I didn’t really notice that I wasn’t in my usual fins during the dive.
On that basis, I’d suggest that the Apeks RK3 fin represents good value for recreational divers.
