I have always been a mares fin userI have always been a mares fin user, I brought some quatros 10 years ago and they are still going strong, its a shame these X-stream i cant say the same about. I brought a pair 18 months ago, used 90% of the time in pool I am a PADI instructor (in uk) so I was in the water at least once a week, they were fine until a resent trip to Bali where over 4 dives in moderate current a tear started between the coloured hard plastic and the middle softer channel plastic. Within another 4 dives the small tear was 5 inches long and a second tear had started on the other fin. Its a real shame because I really liked these fins but be aware once a tear starts it will get worse really quickly, I even tried some 2 part contact adhesive which only slowed the tearing action. So for now its break out the old Quatros again till I find something else.
