Rating: Good Fit and Good Power
Reviewer: Darrell Tagert
The Mares Volo fins I bought for my son to use in his basic scuba class and open water checkout. They performed great and were very comfortable. I even took a quick spin with them to check them out at the open water sessions.

Rating: Faster than Split Fins!
Reviewer: Joel M.  -  View all my reviews
I own a pair of TUSA XpertZoom split fins and Im just not happy with them. I brought the Mares Volo Power fins and immediately felt a big difference. I compared them back to back on the same day and without question, the Mares Volo Power fins were faster and I had less leg cramps with them. I feel split fin technology is a joke.

Rating: Wow is all thatI can say
Reviewer: Steven P.  -  View all my reviews
Wow. I have been using a pair of fins that are as stiff as a 2x4. When I bought them 20+ years ago, that was okay, but now, even though I am in really good shape, I find them just too stiff (58 years old 180 # male). I have been reading the reviews on these fins for years (all great) and had a strong recommendation from one of my friends who has a pair. Finally decided to take the plunge and am I glad I did. Just got back from a diving vacation in the BVI. These fins are incredible. Comfortable as slippers with unbelievable power. My diving partner commented on this. Also, my air consumption went down as I was doing much less effort to move than before. FYI, I used a size 9 Ocean Quest 5mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Medium Sole Dive Boots

Rating: Like not wearing a fin
Reviewer: Ann E.  -  View all my reviews
Bought these for my wife and she loves them. They feel as if shes not wearing a fin but provides great power and propulsion. the next step is to ensure she can perform frog-kick, back kick and helicopter turns in them

Rating: mares volo power
Reviewer: Michael Welch
Just bought a pair of volo power and after about a dozen dives on them I really like them they have more power than I thought they would as the side-rails are not as stiff and beefy as the rails on my atomic splits but the weight makes a difference when you travel. If I really put effort into the fins Ill easily pass other divers. It took a couple dives for me to get the feel of them but now I like em. One thing nice compared to my atomics the volos feel like theres nothing on my feet and its improved my trim in the water.

Reviewer: Patricia Sinclair  -  View all my reviews
These fit me very well, a surprise since I bought them over the internet without trying them on first. Work well in the water, I think better than my old split fins (which I am now offically retiring.)

Rating: Great fins
Reviewer: shaunna d.  -  View all my reviews
i have a pair of the volo (original style) and am very happy with those. i decided to get a second pair and discovered that there is a newer version. the new and improved volo power fins are not as flexible as the originals a good thing. the buckle style has also changed while i am not a fan yet of the new style, im sure i will get used to it.

The flexible material in the middle gives you the feel of a splitfin while still enjoying everything about a blade. Plesantly surprised.

The best fin on the market, no question. I do over 300 dives a year, and these fins are just perfect for power, maneuverability, just a superb fin overall.

Rating: mares fins
Reviewer: Eric spies
this fin is probably the best fin i have ever tried on. Not only is it comfertable the way it glides through the water is amazing. Recommend getting these fins but you need boots with them. If you dont have the boots ur not going to like the fin.

So far, so good. Love how these move me in the water, went from split fins to these to open up to do different kicks (frogkick, etc.).

Rating: Fin Review
Reviewer: William H.
As a novice diver, I took the recommendation from a friend with over 1000 dives in his log book and bought these fins. They make an incredible difference in terms of mobility and ease of movement in the water. Great recommendation for an excellent product. I would buy them again without question.

Rating: amazing fins
Reviewer: annie t.
extremly performant fins, almost to much. no need to push hard to move forward, but also very sensitive, not very much for beginners. I LOVE them, took me 4 dives to get comfortable in the water, the quick release buckles are very usefull and for that kind of money you cant go wrong. F.Y.I. i am a 6foot 200lbs and got 75 dives.

Rating: best fins yet!
Reviewer: EDNA DECASTRO  -  View all my reviews
many benefits: 1.lightweight so it wont weigh down your already heavy dive bag and in airline baggage wt restritions every ounce helps 2.swim faster in the water with less effort and hence less cramps/weakness of legs 3.if you have long strides when you swim this is the fins for you compared to split fins where you need shorter strides.(note:split fins heavier!) only disadvantage is some older dive bags may not accomdate the width of these fins

Rating: Excellent Fins
Reviewer: Nathan E.  -  View all my reviews
Even as a new diver I found the Volo fins to be true to size and very easy to swim with. The bindings made it easy to get the fins on and off both in the water and out. Additionally, I found them to provide a great deal of thrust with minimal effort - the biggest challenge was ascending slow enough! Id buy them again.

Rating: easy power
Reviewer: Richard S.
These fins are really easy to use, with not a lot of effort. Ive swam for hours with them on and still had energy to go for more. The only complaint is the binding can be hard to open sometimes, but sure they will lossen after time.

Rating: Great fins, dont spend more!
Reviewer: David L.  -  View all my reviews
I think these are great fins, easy to use and lots of power. I got the yellow ones so that Im easy to follow in reduced visibility. You can spend more on fins but I dont know why you would need to.

Very easy to swim with - almost effortless. Glide right through the water. A must have if you have short, stubby legs and try to keep up with a 65" diver.
