Brand: Cressi
Located in: Essential Equipment, Fins
After the great success of the Gara Professional and the Gara 3000 LD Cressi hascombined the two designs and characteristics into the Gara Professional LD. The blade is made from a special elastomer polypropylene which gives a longer lasting, more fluid, softer kick that is less demanding, making it ideal for covering long distances.

The use of this new plastic is less reactive than the Compoflex used in the GaraProfessional. It is a progressive and controlled blade, with flexibility and gives an extremely fluid kick. Together with the exceptional lightness and non-dispersion of effort, the kick is more effective and easier than ever. As with the other Gara fins (2000HP, 3000LD and Gara Professional) the Gara Professional LD fins are made using processes that meet high standards of precision and compliance with strict technical parameters.

Foot Pocket: as with the Gara Professional fins, the new foot pocket of the Gara ProfessionalLD has been designed to fit on the bottom of the actual fin blade. This feature,together with a well designed blade-foot pocket combination, reduces the fining effort and the dispersion of energy during fining. The shape of the foot pocket has been redesigned and improved further compared to the highly regarded foot pocket of the other Cressi Gara fins. The use of a new, more flexible elastomer,makes the foot pocket more comfortable.

Who are they for? The new Gara Professional LD are for all those divers who wish to benefit from the extraordinary performance of a long fin, without, having to use too much muscle strength, the ideal effort-productivity ratio can offer even higher performance than when using the more rigid and reactive Gara Professional. Perfect for long kicks, cold water fining, and ideal for use with Scuba the GaraProfessional LD fins will deliver!

Comments about Cressi Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins:

got these for my Down south trips. Wanted a Full pocket FD fin rather then the open heel I typically wear. Foot pocket Feels a bit small and narrow. Other then that seems well made, light yet of sturdy construction. I'll give it a run down in pool when I run the next class

Service & Delivery comments:

As always Leisurepro was fast and furious when it came to getting the order out.

Comments about Cressi Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins:

Excellent Fin. I spend about 4 hrs a day in the water snorkeling and cover about 2 miles of water, I never feel like I have anything attached to my feet, but move very efficiently through the water and have the ability to chase down fish. You can move very quickly when you have to and can conserve all your energy when your just looking for fish from the surface.

Comments about Cressi Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins:

Very well made, but not as great as expected. Bougth them thinking they would be more efficient than my Gara 3000...
Nahh... just prettier and maybe a little bit more comfortable on the shoe pocket. Not worth it... get the less expensive Gara 3000

Comments about Cressi Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins:

I have a narrow foot so I need to wear these with 2-3mm boots. I probably would want to anyway for comfort.

But they are great for the casual or new freediver or spearfisherman.

Comments about Cressi Cressi Gara Professional LD Fins:

I use my Cressi fins for spearfishing and freediving because they're fast and agil.
They are great because of the fine materials they are made of, high tech.
My Gara Professional 3000 LD are a little flexible compared to my old Garas Roundine. I have strong legs to move hard fins but for long spearfishing hours, the 3000 LD Pros are good enough.
