Great Fins - Faster than my previous fav

By GREG H.

These fins are over 10% faster in my underwater freediving timed distance testing than my standard Atomic Aquatics open heel split fins (which are considerably more expensive). They also handily beat out the full foot Mares Volo Race and the new ScubaPro SeaWing Nova fins by even wider margins. The Atomic Aquatics full foot split fin is actually a little bit faster than than these SuperChannels, but in my breathold distance testing, I was able to consistently set a personal best using the Mar...

Best fins I've ever owned

By Hecdiver

I'm an instructor and also a dive guide so I dive pretty frequently. These fins are the best fins I've ever owned. They're fast, powerful and extremely lightweight. Whether I'm in a strong current or strong surge, these fins get me where I need to go without overexerting myself. I'm a true believer in these fins and highly recommend these fins to anyone. You don't have to have strong legs to kick against current. They're easy to put on and take off in any circumstance. One of the best things ...

The perfect blend of power and efficiency Mares design is inspired by marine mammals. Channel Thrust technology maximizes the channeling of water and moves a much greater amount of water compared to other fins of the same size. The result is greater thrusting power with the same amount of effort. Latest development in channel thrust is the super-channel. The blade is designed with a large flexible central super-channel propelling water-flow more efficiently down the fin blade instead of letting it spill over the sides for optimal performance and minimal diver effort.

Due to the compact length and light weight of the fin, the size 8-9 (42/43) is 24.8" (63 cm) and 2.9 lbs. (1.3 kg) making it the ideal fin for travel and for dives in warm waters. The orthopedic foot pocket with variable thicknesses provides superior comfort. The blade is constructed of Tecralene and Thermoplastic rubber for extended durability. Fin comes in multiple sizes and colors.

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

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Not Impressed

First the good: These fins are lightweight and not too big, they fit easily in a small backpack, making them a good choice for a streamlined travel fin. The fins snorkel well and are extremely comfortable. The fins would be good for someone with bad knees who is diving in easy conditions. These fins frog kick well. Now the bad: These fins perform poorly in current. The foot pockets are very soft, which makes them comfortable, but they transfer power poorly (the sizing is dead on, ...

Another solid purchase

By Helen W.

from San Ramon, CA, US

I had looked at other fins when needing to replace my previous fins after 4-5 years. My old ones had lost some rigidity and had been giving me blisters. However, i think it's because they were old, because these were perfect. Gave me enough power in tropical waters, lightweight, fitted in suitcase and were comfy with no blisters!

 

good stuff

By branka v.

this is a good product and it works great for rivers an lakes i use it for snorkeling with my son and the are very comfortable

 

lightweight with penty of thrust. A great travel fin for warm water.

By WILLIAM H.

from Virginia Beach, VA, US

Forget wearing booties. This is a great foot fin. I have been diving for over 40 years and currently dive professionally for a public aquarium. I also dive the mid atlantic and through the Caribbean. I use my Avanti fins on all warm water trips and they are perfect. Lightweight, pack easily and very powerful. I love them. I still have my first pair that are over 20 years old and just purchase a second pair.

 

This was received in exchange for set that was too bit

By Kimberly G.

from Nipomo, CA, US

Perfect fit and quality is good. Haven't been in H2O yet.

 

Good fins for a strong swimmer

By DENISE R.

from Wexford, PA, US

These work well for us. Not too long but have good power. Good size for experienced snorkeler. They fit well in 29" suitcase.

 

Great for snorkeling

By Selena W.

from Central Coast, CA, US

Love these for snorkeling at the Islands. I always use a fin sock but other people don't. They offer thrust, maneuverability, control and comfort. Good little fin to have in the collection for traveling.

 

Great Fin!

By jon c.

Great power and maneuverability for its size. Light weight for travel. Comfortable foot pocket. I use a 2mm sock with them for for protection. Low price is a bonus.

 

great fins

By Dawn T.

from NYC, NY, US

bought these for use in current/drift diving in cozumel and they're excellent. i don't like fins with springs or clasps. these are easy to put on - fold the heel back and slide your foot in as though you're putting on a slipper. they work well with dive socks too. as for handling current, they're excellent. they're great in fast, slow or heavy current.

 

I would buy this gift for any beginner to become efficient.

By Dave S.

Very prompt. Professional and kind.

 

Nice for the price

By Joewhit

Great service with return for smaller size.

 

like fins but runs a little big

By Josh

I usually wear a size 10 shoe. Bought the 9.5-10.5. They are a size to big. Otherwise I am happy with quality aand performance.

 

I would buy this again

. True to size XXL for my siz 12M feet.

By ChgoDiveBuddy

I have a 12M foot size. I ordered the XXL fin that is for 11.5 to 12.5 sizes. The fin fits nicely but to tight to wear a booty. That's great with Me since I never wear socks/booties with Open heel fins anyways. Great light weight fin for warm water diving.

 

LOVE these fins

By RV

Just used these fins diving and snorkeling in Cozumel and they were great to manuever even in the currents there. Super fast and comfortable and I was able to move quickly and change direction easily.

 

excellent fins

By turbobake

This is a great buy. You get what you pay for. I originally purchased one pair to try out for my son. He liked them so much that I have purchased 2 more pairs for the whole family! Great product. You won't be disappointed. The fin is very comfortable and efficient, not to mention FAST.
