Mares Quattro Excel Open Heel Fins Features

  • The Super Channel Thrust makes it possible to channel the water and optimize thrust in comparison to other fins of similar size.
  • The elastic OPB system ensures that the blade is always at an optimal angle during both the upward and downward strokes, thus considerably increasing efficiency.
  • The "whale fin" section in the foot pocket allows for greater transmission of power, with improved sensitivity when finning.
  • In order to improve performance over the already legendary Avanti Quattro, three different materials were used.
  • The consequent advantage is greater thrust with the same effort.
  • The straps feature ABS (Adjustable Binding System), recognized worldwide as the best strap closure and adjustment system.

      Very high quality durable powerful fins. Must faster than my Oceanic split fins. Found fin clips convenient once you have mastered the fitting size.

        Comments about Mares Quattro Excel Open Heel Fins:

        These fins are great. The stated cons, in my opinion, should be ignored. I have over 200 dives
        with mine and they still look new. If you have touble getting them on and off it's because you need a different size, and make no mistake these are more expensive for a reason, they are not for beginners or snorkling. If you are a new diver I would recomend a more flexible fin with less power. If your looking for a great fin with a lot of power and very comfortable, then the only thing else you need is a set of springs to make donning and removing a sinch and you are set.

          Comments about Mares Quattro Excel Open Heel Fins:

          Another improvement by Mares, the aerodynamic shape really helps with the thrust of the fin, and the new abs plus buckle is really much easier to handle than the previous version. The colors are a little too flashy though!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was great and on time, as well as the product being in tact and customer service staff were friendly and quite well informed by simply asking one detail for order verification!

          Comments about Mares Quattro Excel Open Heel Fins:

          Awesome SCUBA fin, comfortable and super fast. Generates a lot of thrust underwater, but not suitable for surface swimming or snorkeling.

          One of mine suffered blade separation in the enter of the blade after <20 dives and had to be replaced Makes me question the reliability of what is an expensive set of fins.
