The X-Stream: performance, comfort and lightweight

August 1st, 2011

Two Mares fins: the Volo Power is still strong and the next gen X-Stream is high tech!

A nice article about our X-Stream Fins on Scuba Gadget presents this high tech product ...
Here below just a preview of some quotes on the X-Stream Fins from the testers... (see scubagadget.com):

"It was nice to be able to firmly grasp them both with one hand while trying to fight the tides getting out of the water on a really rocky exit. I was looking specifically for a lighter less bulky fin for use when travelling but still met the demands of various ocean conditions. So far I am happy with them. (Piccola ScubaBoard)
Find them a lot easier and faster to catch up to other divers if finning slowly on them . Saw 2 divers racing each other one with volos and the other with the x-streams . Out come x-streams won by a long shot . Well done to Mares on making a nice light weight fin that are good for travelin and supper fast in the water (chrisgp007 – ScubaBoard)
I actually like them a lot better. They did not hurt my knee at all and that is a major factor for me. I had great control for camera work and I could actually move in revers a lot better. I did play a bit, spinning in one place, ETC. all worked great. (Armistead Lucas Coleman)"
