Excellent Fin

By ONEG8RH8R

Excellent Fin. I spend about 4 hrs a day in the water snorkeling and cover about 2 miles of water, I never feel like I have anything attached to my feet, but move very efficiently through the water and have the ability to chase down fish. You can move very quickly when you have to and can conserve all your energy when your just looking for fish from the surface.

 

I would buy again

Best buy ever Very durable and very flimsy. These fins help me get to great depths

After the great success of the Gara Professional and the Gara 3000 LD Cressi has combined the two designs and characteristics into the Gara Professional LD. The blade is made from a special elastomer polypropylene which gives a longer lasting, more fluid, softer kick that is less demanding, making it ideal for covering long distances. The use of this new plastic is less reactive than the Compoflex used in the Gara Professional. It is a progressive and controlled blade, with flexibility and gives an extremely fluid kick. Together with the exceptional lightness and non-dispersion of effort, the kick is more effective and easier than ever. As with the other Gara fins (2000HP, 3000LD and Gara Professional) the Gara Professional LD fins are made using processes that meet high standards of precision and compliance with strict technical parameters.

Foot Pocket: as with the Gara Professional fins, the new foot pocket of the Gara ProfessionalLD has been designed to fit on the bottom of the actual fin blade. This feature, together with a well-designed blade-foot pocket combination, reduces the fining effort and the dispersion of energy during fining. The shape of the foot pocket has been redesigned and improved further compared to the highly regarded foot pocket of the other Cressi Gara fins. The use of a new, more flexible elastomer, makes the foot pocket more comfortable.

Who are they for? The new Gara Professional LD are for all those divers who wish to benefit from the extraordinary performance of a long fin, without, having to use too much muscle strength, the ideal effort-productivity ratio can offer even higher performance than when using the more rigid and reactive Gara Professional. Perfect for long kicks, cold water fining, and ideal for use with Scuba the GaraProfessional LD fins will deliver! Fin is available in multiple sizes.

GARA PRO
Cressi

The Gara Professional LD is a high performance fin and requires minimum effort to load the long blades and is an excellent choice for deep freediving and spearfishing, yet are more forgiving than other long blade fins for the untrained legs. It is ideal for long distance swimming or for beginners not previously used to using a long blade fin. It can provide the power and efficiency for any experience level while deep freediving and spearing.

  • High performance fin that requires minimum effort to load the long blades and is an excellent choice for deep free diving and spearfishing.
  • Blade made from a special elastomer polypropylene which gives a longer lasting, more fluid, softer less demanding kick.
  • Improved anatomy of the foot pocket made in particularly soft elastomer for increase the comfort.
  • Union between blade and foot pocket maximizes energy dispersion and reduced effort.
  • Composed of soft material and features a lightweight design.
  • Delivering the maximum power with minimum energy through its long firm blade that runs over the foot pocket.
  • The fins are designed and made in Italy by Cressi.

Long Fins vs. Short Fins

Long fins provide greater forward propulsion. They allow you to travel farther, while exerting less energy. In contrast, shorter fins make it easier to change directions and allow you to kick at a faster rate.

GARA PRO

Maximum Power, Minimum Energy

With the foot pocket located below the blade, these fins are able to provide power with little effort. Along with the long length of the blade and its lightweight design, the positioning of the foot pocket eases the dispersion of energy throughout the fin, increasing the performance of the user.

GARA PRO

Soft elastomer for comfort

The anatomy of the foot pocket has been redesigned and, if possible, further improved compared to the already much appreciated shoe pockets of the Cressi Gara. The use of a new, particularly soft elastomer further increases comfort. The Gara Professional LD is an exceptionally soft full foot pocket style fin, which provides comfort during prolonged use on those long days in the water.

Fantastic Product!

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DENNIS B  I want to easily propel to greater depths free diving. Good longboards.
MICHAEL S  I wanted a high performance fin for occassional use without bucking up yet for carbon fiber.
MICAH B  Great price point. Although the blade is on top of the foot pocket (most are below the foot pocket), my SCUBA diving fins are the same way so I don't think it will be weird for me.
Border Services Connor U  best spearhunting fin on here
Michael F  I have a set of these already and got two more for my friends to do some free diving and spearfishing. These fins make a huge difference in the water.
Dave M  I looked around and this seems like the best deal right now.
ANNE S  Looking for a lighter weight, flexible, full foot fin for warm water diving and I was ready to ditch the heavy boots and fins from my coldwater days, (Those fins were very hard to remove in the water after a dive.)
becky t  Anchor diving.
George M  Sale price provided an excellent value for a long, high performance fin.
David B  The Cressi Gara Professional LD fins have received consistently good reviews since their introduction. I have postponed their purchase for some time but, recently, I discovered the insanely great pricing at Leisure Pro and could no longer resist. These will be my first "long" fins and following some in-water time, I'll submit a review of their performance.
ROBERT B  great performance for price
DAVID A  wanted to try the very long fins.. would be good for diving, but too unwieldy for snorkeling. only get a good stoke on the down stroke when snorkeling.. underwater however, they are brutally fast if you have strong legs
Shopper  There doesn't appear to be a 9-10 US men size. I normally wear a 9.5. Is there a size that would work here with 2.5mm socks please?
ROMAINE W  I wear a size 9 US, I bought size 8-9 US, I always wear 3mm socks. the fins work well with the socks, the foot part of the fin is soft and comfortable. Of course your foot is half a size larger than mine, but I would hesitate buying a fin that would kick off.
Carmen L  Always had problems with foot cramps. Would these finds help?
Mark T  No. Make sure your fins are comfortable and use the right thickness of booties if you use them. You might be kicking too hard. Use the large muscles in you thighs. Hope this helps.
ROBERT B  you have to have propper fitting fins to help with the foot cramps these fins are great if your used to using a longer more agressive fin . i would suggest split fins and use flutter kick style while swimming
FREDERICK J  Foot cramps are usually caused by the fins fitting to tight. I buy my fins a little bigger than they need to be. The longer fins could cause leg cramps until you get use to them. But the blades on these fins are not real rigid so they may not bother you.
STEVEN M  I assume you're comparing them to scuba or snorkeling fins. That's a hard question to answer. They are longer and more efficient if you're going in a straight line like up and down to depths like free divers do. They might save your legs from that aspect as they make you inclined to take longer, smoother strokes with your legs. On the other hand they are not as manueverable is shorter fins and would not be a good choice in shallow water where you might be turning around a lot. It takes a lot more leg muscle to move them around sideways in the water.
