Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins mares planta avanti fins
Reviewer: JUDY HILL,
My husband and I both ordered these fins...both pairs were at least a size too large. The sizing chart is not even close! I would suggest buying a size smaller...I wear a womens 8 and ordered the small (smallest they had) so I had no option but return them. The fins seemed fine otherwise...we did not get in the water with them.

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Powerful Fins
Reviewer: Michael Guerrero,   
I was looking for fins that would provide me with plenty of power when I need it, and split fins just wont do that. I dont get fatigued using these fins, but take my fitness seriously so may not be the same for the typical diver. If you want more powerful and more rigid fins to get you through or out of currents these are great for the money.

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Nice Fins
Reviewer: Michael Goodale,  - View all my reviews
Have worn these fins for 15 dives and am very satisfied with them. They are comfortable and seem very efficient in the water. The straps are easy to slip over the heal and tighten in the water or on the boat.

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Great Fins
Reviewer: Joe C.,
I really like diving in these fins. They are comfortable and the membranes allow the fins to cup which make them easier on your legs, calves and feet. As an older diver this is important to me. They are open heel style witch I like best. The quality is very good for the price. I plan to buy a pair for my wife when she recovers from her knee surgery.

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Good Overall Fins
Reviewer: Robert Mcivor,  - View all my reviews
These are the first fins I ever bought - 12 YEARS AGO & some 650 dives! They are so good that I just bought a replacement pair. Quality made (obviously after 12 years), good stroke for finning.

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins mares plana avanti X3 fins
Reviewer: matthew kinzelman,  - View all my reviews
good fin and excellent buckle system. I personally dont like big paddle fins and bought these as backups. I usually use Force fins and these feel a lot different. Those folks who like a big paddle fin will love these. I compared them to the superchannel Mares fins and find these stiffer. I am considering cutting out the central rubber gusset to make a pair of "splits " out of them. As they are now , they are too stiff and "draggy" in the water for my current preference.

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Still Great Fins
Reviewer: Carter Coughlan,  - View all my reviews
I bought my pair of power plana avanti fins in 1989...still dive with them today, hundreds of dives latter, my wife has a pair from 1994, and this new pair is for my just cerified 12 year old son...they are alot like my wifes, but have added a nice easy open latch for the strap on the side. Lots of power, light weight, and I am sure they will also last for years and years....buy good stuff, its worth it!

Reviewer: Marc Tarantino,  - View all my reviews
I bought a pair of these for my 12yr.old Daughter who is a new diver. They worked out great, the ease in taking the fins on and off proved benificial in getting her in and out of the water. Highly recomended!

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Great Fins!
Reviewer: Martin Steed,
I have been diving for 35 years, and these are some of the nicest fins Ive seen. The material is supple and pliable, yet rigid where it needs to be. Most impressive are the strap adjusters with their quick release that maintains the desired tightness when putting them back on. These were perfect for my seven year old son, now I wish I had a pair!

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins Low Cost high Quality Fins!!!
Reviewer: Ashden F.,
Although these fins were some of the least expensive ones on the website, they performed incredibly well. I can not imagine getting better performance for under $200 and these were under $70. Definetely buy these!

Rating: Mares-Plana-Avanti-X3-Fins good fin
Reviewer: David Gibbs,  - View all my reviews
Just got back from a week in Nassau with these. Good solid fin. Takes a bit more muscle to move these, but they will get you moving quickly. Tough design, loved the quick release. Worked great.
