The F.I.I. Training Floats are our most popular FII Pro Shop item! Don't forget the inner tube is purchased separately.
The F.I.I custom made, freediving float covers are made of a sturdy rubberized nylon and have a convenient crescent-zip design offering plenty of inner storage room for lines and water bottles. The underside features a reinforced webbing strap securing a solid stainless steel D-Ring for line attachment and a conveniently placed narrow nylon webbing strap circumnavigates the diameter of the float with small loops. The loops around the outside are used by freedivers to hold onto during their “breath ups”, and to attach additional accessories.
* Weight - For most training set-ups, we recommend attaching a 25lb weight. This can be formed using dive weights, kettle bell, etc.
* Line - We recommend using a minimum 3/8th inch line that is double braded with a nylon interior. The line should also be what is called a static line. What this means is if you add weight to it the line wont stretch. Docking line is our prefered recommendation.
* Deflated the floats fold down into a compact size and can be rolled up - perfect for traveling.
* Inner tubes need to be purchased separately either from the FII Pro Shop, or at your local tire store.
Care and Maintenance: We highly recommend rinsing your float in fresh water after each use and preferably stored deflated out of direct sunlight. While the float outer is extremely durable, we do not recommend dragging it over rocks, along the road,etc.
