About Mares Avanti Excel Full Foot Fins

Mares performed numerous tests on new materials in the field and in the lab With this test information and after intense computer simulations, the Mares Avanti Excel was born Mares design is inspired by marine mammals Channel Thrust technology maximizes the channeling of water and moves a much greater amount of water compared to other fins of the same size The result is greater thrusting power with the same amount of effort Latest development in Channel Thrust is the Super-channel The blade is designed with a large flexible central Super-channel propelling water-flow more efficiently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides for optimal performance and minimal diver effort The elastic Optimized Pivot Blade (OPB) system ensures that the blade is always at an optimal angle during both the upward and downward strokes, giving considerably increased efficiency

The Mares Avanti Excel Full Foot Fins is commonly used for Recreation, SCUBA, Snorkeling and more. The Mares Avanti Excel Full Foot Fins is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Mares Avanti Excel Full Foot Fins: Comfortable, Efficient.

      Comments about Mares Avanti Excel Full Foot Fins:

      I loved the product for what it is. Great travel
      fin for quick boat entries. If you like to kick,
      you will find limits in propulsion. I tend
      to drift along on long dives. The fin is great for penetration
      diving due to it's small size. Very Very soft foot pocket.

        Comments about Mares Avanti Excel Full Foot Fins:

        Great fins for air travel and boat diving. Lightweight, which is important in staying under the 50# airline rule to avoid extra charges. Yet strong enough to swim across strong currents. I have a narrow foot, so I used short socks that kept my feet warm and comfy. First non-bootie fin, and I love it!

        Service and delivery comments:

        First experience with Leisure Pro, and it was outstanding!

        Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  The foot pockets on these fins are a bit loose and I was wondering if I should get the next size down?
        LeisurePro S  You could try wearing a boot or sock with the fin that will take up the extra space and cut down on any irritation that might occur. Or you could get the size down, try them both at home and send the wrong size back for no extra charge.
        Shopper  i was wondering the length of the fin, for the size 3.5-4.5 for the mares avanti excel full foot fin. I'm a dive guide and i'm looking for a fin that is longer and stiffer than the mares volo blade (aslo full foot fin), which i already own.
        LeisurePro S   This fin is 22" long from end to end, it is stiffer and harder to kick than the Volo.
