Lots of choices, yet one durable classic set of fins.

By Peter

 -  East Hanover, NJ, US

During my observation of many many fins on dive boats, this Mares fin stands out to be the one with fewest issues. That is to say, some folks have talked about their fins not being good. Since my first set of Mares super-channel to now my most recent super-channels with Bungee Strap, I have been a fan. The older version has a rubber strap that can break if used improperly. This bungee strap is a bit more durable, and seems to hold up similar to well admired spring metal straps. I am a...

Good price and quality!

By Rene P.

Best match of quality and price.

The Mares Avanti Super Channel Open Heel Fin (OH) with bungee strap is the perfect combination of comfort, power and efficiency in one fin. The new blade design with large central super channel and 2-traditional lateral channels provide excellent thrust while maintaining high efficiency and minimal leg fatigue. The fin blade is made of Thermoplastic rubber and Tecralene a rugged and durable construction. The blade with its 3-channels optimizes water flow. Channel Thrust: Soft longitudinal inserts allow a controlled deformation of the fin blade while kicking. This channel shape moves a greater amount of water resulting in more thrust for the same effort. The range of sizes is complete, in multiple sizes to better accommodate all requirements, including those of women and younger divers.

The Mares bungee fin straps where created as a smart alternative to the steel spring straps, this unique fin strap relegates adjusting a fin strap to a thing of the past. Bungees exceed steel springs in all aspects: Higher elastic properties, unaffected by sun, salt and chemical agents, lower weight and lower cost, and Mares has 40 years of experience using bungees as a key element in spear guns.

With the new Mares bungee strap donning and doffing a fin is a breeze and the comfort during the dive is guaranteed by the new ergonomic heel cover. The heel cover comes equipped with a large hand loop allowing easy pull-to-stretch the bungee strap effortlessly over the heel of your foot. Fins are available in multiple colors and have a blade length of 14.6" (37cm)In regular size.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

HURT

The strap hurt my heal and you can't make it any looser. Had to keep moving it to find a kinda comfortable position.

Too buoyant unable to kick

By Richard E.

Well built, good customer service. These are humongous! Have tried to use the fins twice with 6mm boots. The combined buoyancy is so high it is nearly impossible to get meaningful propulsion. Had to revert each time to my shorty fins. Interested in solutions to my dilemma to recover value from my purchase.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have a size 9 foot and wear a 7 mill bootie. What size fin pocket to I need with the Mares Avanti super channel fin with bungee heel strap ?.
Avery E  I would get the Regular size (I think it is their Large), I bought X Large and it fits well. Their size chart says size 6-9 shoe gets a S/M and Regular is for 9-11. I would go with the larger one (Regular) as the thickness of your booty is also a factor. By the way, the fins are great and easier to put on and take off.
Shopper  will this fit my size 11 boots?
Christopher D  These fins are made to be worn with a thin dive boot. However, if you had a hard soled boot, you would probably want to get a larger size. For a size 11 with a thin boot I would recommend the regular, with a hard sole boot I'd recommend the XL
