Are split dive fins better than paddle fins?

Split Fins are a Popular Choice Among Divers

Fun dive fins to try are new versions that promise better kicking force and underwater efficiency. These fins are not the traditional duck-footed dive flippers. They have splits, cutouts and vents to help divers swim faster.

Split fins are the most common and popular. The fins are forked or bisected, with a thin piece missing from the middle. It's like having twin fins on each foot. Divers who use split fins boast of having stronger and more forceful strokes. But there are other divers who still swear by the paddle scuba fins.
