Average Customer Review: based on 5 reviews.Rating: Classic good fins
Hi, am looking to replace my Mares Power Plana fins (recently lost one during a trip). I am an instructor (as well as technical and wreck diving) and need something with some power and speed (to track down runaway students, ha) as well as control. The Power Plana were very light weight, but still. Have been using Jetfins, but would rather have something lighter for travel. Would you suggest the Quattro Excel Plus? Or do you have other suggestions?
I am very interested in this fins. Is there a red one? I really wanna get a red fin (cause my mask has orange colored frame) I wear Mares boots(5mm) size 7, then what size should I choose? My husband also want to get this fin(silver color) and he wears Mares boots(3mm) size 6, then what size would be good for him?

Colors: yl, bl, bk, wh, lm, fl
Sizes: S · R · XL
Blade: Cm 38
Weight: Kg 0.90
Material: Thermoplastic rubber/ Tecralene®
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. Mares design is inspired by marine mammals.
Open Heel Foot Pockets: The open heel foot pocket is designed to accommodate dive boots with a sole, and to offer excellent adherence between the boot and the foot pocket in order to transfer all the force exerted by the leg to the blade, without sacrificing yield yet still ensuring superior comfort.
The lower section of the foot pocket is longer, in order to better transfer power to the blade and minimize the risk of cramping. In addition, the inside of the foot-pocket features internal ribbing to improve fit and stiffen the sole.
