About Cressi Reaction Open Heel Fins

Reaction is the most recent Cressi open heel adjustable strap fin which has been developed after the Rondine. The Reaction is an innovative fin in look and performance. The Reaction is molded using the exclusive and patented Cressi system with 3 materials. The three materials consist of a comfortable thermo-rubber (elastomer) anatomic, computer-designed foot pocket. The foot pocket encompasses the foot assuring transmission of the leg-to-fin thrust without loss of energy, adding efficiency to the fining action.

The second material is the revolutionary new dual density (techno polymer) polypropylene which forms the blade, and in conjunction with the third silicone based material creates a channeling effect. The channeling effect is the characteristic of the fin that enables a high level of energy to be transferred in both up and down strokes of the kick pattern. The blade originates from the upper part of the foot pocket, with a 20% increase in useful surface area compared to a traditional fin of the same length. The blade also has a differentiated thickness and gets thinner towards the edge to guarantee greater and more uniform bending.

The side stringers are made from two different materials that alternate with each other and overlap in different zones to obtain a structure with controlled flexibility in the different areas of the blade. New up-and-over adjustable quick-release buckles allow ideal positioning of the strap on the heel. These new buckles locking system prevents the possibility of the buckle falling off, even if the fins are unbuckled. To all these excellent features, Reaction adds a new, longer, more flexible and lighter blade that provides excellent thrust with minimum muscle fatigue and the smallest expenditure of energy. Fin is available sizes X-Small, Small, Medium/Large or Large/X-Large, comes in Blue/Light Blue, Black/Red, Clear/Pink, White/Lavender or Black/Silver in sizes X-Small and Small and the same in Medium/Large or Large/X-Large except Clear/Pink. Fins are covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

My wife and I bought these fins before going to Bonaire as an open-heeled fin is recommended due to wearing boots for rugged shore entries. The fins worked great, not too stiff, but not overly flexible either. Fins give good propulsion, and did not did not seem like "too much fin" for snorkeling as some other reviewers indicated. We have used primarily for snorkeling/free-diving but imagine they would work equally as well for SCUBA diving. Another criticism was the foot insert area being too big, we wear them with Seasoft boots and love them (read my review on them too if looking for a great warm water boot). Feet never cramp and I have spent multiple hours in the water at multiple points in the day (both in Bonaire and Roatan). Overall a great fin for a price that doesn't break the bank.

You will not confuse the foot pocket fit with that of a mares fin. The sole is arched upwards resulting in some odd sensations and loss of leverage on upstroke. Thin soled booties result in greater instability. Wear a thicker hard soled bootie.

Blade has nice progressive snap and works well with frog sculling. Clunky foot pocket design makes packing a bit more of a burden then other fins. Newfangled strap design (all plastic construction) will not accomodate stainless or save-a-dive straps.

            Very good fins. Creates good propulsion through the water. I noticed that I don't have to kick as much to keep myself moving. Comfortable.

              I have these in the pink. When i purchased them i hadn't tried them in the water and i wish i could have given them a test run. I am not in the best shape and i used these just while snorkeling in Lake Tahoe. They are long stiff fins, i HATED them for snorkeling but deeper underwater i could see them giving amazing power, if your leg muscles are strong enough and your don't get cramps. I started to get cramps in my feet from them as well.
