Without question, the best fins I've owned in 16 years of diving. I recently switched to these fins while diving in Thailand. Due to strong current at some of the dive sites (Similans / Koh Bon / Richelieu Rock) I was struggling to kick through and spent a lot of time and air to do so with my Atomic fins. Between liveaboard trips I picked these up and they were an absolute dream. Effort reduced by 60-80%, resulting in longer and more relaxed dives when faced with moderate to strong current. Were also excellent for all other conditions, including difficult surface swims.

I have used these fins on approximately 50 dives. They are good mid grade fins except for the snapping strap feature. Frankly speaking the ABS (Adjustable Binding System), is a major pain in a particular rear facing body part. The snaps open very hard and if you are not wearing gloves you have a good chance of hurting yourself. I have noticed that they have been opening easier with time, which make me think this feature is wearing out. I cannot recommend these fins.

      Comments about Mares Avanti Quattro Open Heel Fins:

      Divemaster with 45 years in the water. Have used this fin for some 15 years and it always performs flawlessly. I suggest you zip tie the buckle system closed and just pull the strap over your booty to put them on. Trim off the excessive fin strap and you are now streamlined.

            With the snap open buckles, it makes getting in and out of boats quick and easy without having to readjusting how tight it fits. One thing extra that I love is that mares packages a replaceable strap/buckle combo to keep in your save a dive kit for quick swap.

                  I've tried many fins... The seawing novas were too floppy, the jet fins were too heavy, the OMS slipstreams were too stiff... In the end I got these tried and true fins that allows me to use all finning styles effectively... They are no nonsense fins that get the job done... I put on a set of Atomic Universal spring straps and they are now my goto fins...

                  Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                  HEIDI M  I used them since I start scuabe diving 10 year´s ago. This are my second pair.
                  jeff h  New to diving and I would like to know how the length of the fin is measured?
                  RANDAL V  I have size small and they are 24 inches, measured along the bottom of the fin, from the fin tip to edge of the open heel.
                  Craig F  Undecided between these fins or the Mares Volo ?I spearfish but don't want to stiff of a fin. My fins are 10 years old and very flexible, I know anything will be a much better fin.
                  Steve S  Go with the Quattros. They are a bit stiffer, but not to stiff. These get you moving much better than the volo's.
