After a long search

I always seem to have a tough time with surface current on the return to the boat. My fin collection runs from those PowerPlanas, US Divers Blades, Appollo Bio Split fins, Aeris Velocity, Avanti Quatro, and now these SuperChannels; which are the best "fighting current" fins in my arsenal. I'm not a big diver, rather average 5'-7" height and 160lbs, these fins fit me fine. I will have to come up with a strap buckle replacement when it breaks on me. If you don't figure it how it supposed to ...

Good product and quality


good conditions.


Power and lightweight


from Las Vegas, NV, US

Love these fins. I own these in the full foot version for tropical environs and wanted to try the open heel style for more cold weather dives. The fit and efficiency is pretty consistent. I was told these were a "soft" fin, but the design is a mixture of soft and hard composites and is much more efficient than a traditional soft fin. I can power by just about anyone without much effort. Five stars.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ALAN C  Greatest fins made. Good thrust, no tired legs or sore muscles. great for frog kicks. Good buckle release system.
Thomas V  Based on reviews and price
GEORGE H  Been diving since 1968 and have been using Mares Fins since the early 80's. Easy to kick, but they really move you along.
DAVID H  Scuba diving magazine rated this as a top fin. It is sharp looking and performs like a dream.
Shopper  I wear a 5mm mares trilastic boot. What size fins should i get?
Frank L  That depends on what size boot. Please refer to size chart on item page.
Jason O  My scuba boots are size 11 (6 mm XS scuba boots). Would the Regular or XL size fin be better? Thanks.
DAVID B  You will want Large. I am Size 11 as well and these are a good fit.
CHARLES E  My Oceanic Neosport boots size11 are the hard sole (reefwalkers) and are a bigger boot than normal boots. So I got the XL size and it has worked out for me. My regular size boots are size 10 and maybe it would be a better choice for the Regular size since with the size 10 boots they are very loose in the XL pocket and I would have the straps pulled all the way. I think you would be happier with the XL even with the non-hardsole boots.
CHARLES E  I use Oceanic boots size 11 and fit the XL size Super Channels. Regualr size would be way too small.
MELISSA D  My husband wears a size 11 and the XLs fit him perfectly.
Kasia W  Size XL should work best.
