About Mares Avanti Super-Channel Full Foot Fins

The perfect blend of power and efficiency 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.

Due to the compact length and light weight of the fin, the size 8-9 (42/43) is 24.8" (63 cm) and 2.9 lbs (1.3 kg) making it the ideal fin for travel and for dives in warm waters. The orthopedic foot pocket with variable thicknesses provides superior comfort. The blade is constructed of Tecralene and Thermoplastic rubber for extended durability. Fin comes in 6 sizes and three colors with a 24 month limited warranty.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MICHAEL B  Warm water travel space and weight. Also any full foot fin is more efficient then any open heel boot fin which also has a lot of drag.
Shopper  whats the length of the fin???
LOUISE M  It depends on the "shoe" size. Mine are 5-6 (38-39) and they measure 23 inches. My husband has much larger feet (I don't have them here to check), and his are a good 10 inches longer. He's an 11.5 shoe size. Don't hesitate to buy these! We've enjoyed them for years. If in doubt, buy the smaller size. For example my shoe size is 7.5 , and the 5-6 fit perfectly. These things never caused me a blister, and have afforded me ample power under water. And we bought them red! So when we dive with groups, it's always easy to spot our buddy. The only downside: if you do a beach dive, and it's rocky, you need extra booties, and then you need to switch once in the water, and cram the booties in your BCD... We mostly do boat dives,so we are completely happy with these things!
Shopper  Do you think the fin could fit a womens size 5.5/6 with a 2mm sock? (have a akona 2mm low cut size 5 that fits well)
Steve S  Yes, these will fit a women's size 5.5/6. I would suggest the Medium. If you don't like the fit please call Customer Service at 800-637-6880 and exchange it for the next size through our PFF Guarantee.
