Love my Cressi fins

By Michael D.

I love these fins! Used them on an beach entry dive off of Dania Beach FL. Had to swim out way past the pier and these fins performed beautifully.

 

easy to put on/off. light waight. high efficiency

By Kamel A.

It is extremely easy to put these fins on. Efficiency wise, I don't have to kick hard to get propelled forward. I did not test it in strong current but I am sure if I have to it won't let me down

Cressi has made, with today's technology, a newer version of the old-school bestselling Master Frog. Besides all features that made Cressi Frog fins an icon in the industry they improved the blade and widened the foot pocket which is therefore ideal to use with today's boots. As a standard Cressi has added their patented EBS (Elastic Bungee System) to this master piece. The Cressi Ara EBS Fin is a new, extremely responsive dive fin. The Ara fins focus feature is its polypropylene blade. This new blade material is a lightweight yet very durable material that delivers more thrust power in every kick. This exciting new responsiveness attributes to a great work rate ratio and delivers an incredible high-performance fin. Water is efficiently channeled through a new, improved ribbed non-vented blade design further improving the Ara s performance.

Ergonomically designed thermo rubber foot pockets contribute to an incredibly comfortable fit. This is due to varying levels of hardness that ensures proper fit and comfort through the entirety of your dive. A new heel strap design, exclusive to Cressi the Elastic Bungee System (EBS) makes use of a round bungee cord band that accommodates all foot sizes for a perfect fit. The EBS strap features an anti corrosive rubber coated bungee, and an extra-large heel grab loop. This allows for donning and doffing even with thick diving gloves. The best feature of the bungee design is that it will always stay conformed to your foot no matter your depth by counteracting the neoprene compression of your boots. The EBS strap is guaranteed to give you unparalleled comfort and forget-about-it-adjusting.

This Cressi Ara EBS SB (soft blade) model features a more flexible soft blade compared to its HB (hard blade) model, which accommodates nearly all divers. The SB model helps to conserve energy by producing less resistance. The SB model still offers incredible propulsion and performance but takes advantage of the fact that hard blades are not necessary in typical dive conditions. The fin blade measures 20" to 22" (51cm to 56 cm) and weighs 24.64 oz. to 31 oz. (699 g to 880 g) depending on the size.

Change was great!

By Pepelyn

Super fast an reliable service. I was not home but left them at the leasing office.

 

this is a really big fin

By CHAD L.

This is a great fin for power. It grabs allot of water making for a good swim. But as i found if your in class or spending allot of time instructing these fins may be a bit too large to make kneeling on the bottom easy. Probably not a good starter fin either as it may be tiresome for a beginner with all the water grab these provide. Great fin other than that

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

JP B  What are the overall lengths of the Med/large AND the Large/ex-large Cressi Ara's?
Mike T  Hi Diver, The M/L is 26.14" The L/XL is 27.55"
Daniel F  26.5 inches
Shopper  Does this fin have the same foot pocket as the old Master Frog fin? I own a the Master Frog and want to know if I can expect the same sizing. Looking for a softer fin than the Master Frog.
Sean F  I don't know about the master frog fin, but I have a pair of mares boots that fit into my mares fins, but not into the cressi. Had to buy a new pair of boots. I like the lightness and action of these fins though.
LISA V  Yes, sizing was the same. I do not think these are any softer than my master frog's, seem about the same to me. They are slightly shorter so they fit in my luggage better. I don't like the spring loaded strap, but my old master frog straps worked so I use those.
JP B  THanks!
Mike T  Hi There, The Ara is based off the Master Frog but with a shorter blade. So the foot pocket is the same. Even the soft blade version of this fin will be much stiffer than the Frog Plus.
Michele W  I tried on the Masters Frog when I bought these and they are really close. However this is still a pretty stiff fin. I like these fins but I prefer my cheaper Frog Plus over these.
