    Bang for the buck; a powerful fin for the fairly fit diver in challenging conditions. Not as much snap as a true long fin, but plenty of thrust when needed. Not for weak ankles though and they could cramp your calves if you didn't stretch and hydrate sufficiently. Great power transfer from very ergonomic foot pocket.

    I bought these to use as travel fins since they're a full 6" shorter than my freediving fins. The blade flexes too close to the tip so you can't get that nice sine-wave bend that makes a good ascent/descent fin. I imagine it would work fine for underwater hockey or SCUBA, especially when collecting or carrying a lot of gear.

    They run a full size larger than my Avanti HP's too so I had to wear neoprene socks. The heel tabs dig in to my Achilles so booties were a good thing. Mares build quality is top-notch as usual.

      Comments about Mares Avanti Quattro Power Full Foot Long Blade Fins:

      This is the best model of fins as far as I know, for warm up to 50 degrees water. They are good for scuba diving (very fast and efficient) and also for snorkeling and for free diving to a certain degree. I can swim very fast with them even carrying a tank in my back and a big video camera.

        Comments about Mares Avanti Quattro Power Full Foot Long Blade Fins:

        My friends wearing these were swimming up current with relative ease, while I was just kicking and kicking with my fairly rigid but split jet fins (which I loved for 15 years). Now I feel like I'm kicking barefoot with my old fins on.

        Definitely takes some leg muscles…often us newbies will cramp while building up the slightly different muscles used with this type of fin.

        Also takes some practice and getting used to…and requires extra caution in the reef not to kick anything or stir up the silt due to their length and power

              Efficient, powerful fins. Use less air when using these fins. Neutral, they may feel and look a bit long, but you don't notice that in the water except for their efficiency. Don't hang them by their heels, will damage the foot pocket.

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              Ramzi Y  Best choice for scuba and spearfishing
              Shopper  I am a woman's size 8. What size fins do I buy?
              KENDRA S  I am a size 8.5 to 9 medium width women's shoe. I have the size 40-41 or 6.5-7.5 size (unisex). Not a fin for wide feet, runs narrow to medium width feet. Hope this helps.
              A M  Hello, I was happy to see Mares finally added a larger 11-12 size to Quattro Power line. I typically wear a size 11-12 fin, as always seem to fit nicely on my US size 13 foot. However, there seems to be some confusion whether, or not, these sizes are US or UK. In any event, my main question is: Will these fit comfortably on a US size 13 foot? Thanks, Andrew
              JEROME P  Hi Andrew, The Mares Avanti Quattro PowerFull Foot Long Blade Fins run big. I wear size 9 1/2 shoes but I use the 6 1/2 - 7 1/2 size of these fins with 2.5 mm Cressi neoprene booties for a very comfortable fit. I imagine that the 11- 12 fins will fit a size 13 foot, and you'll probably have room for a bootie too! Leisurepro is very good about allowing returns if they don't fit, but I'll bet you'll do well with the 11 - 12 size fin. Good luck! These are great fins, and I'm still using them almost every week over a year after buying them.
