The Mares Power Plana fins are a heavy duty fin made from a high quality natural rubber. This type of fin is ideal for technical divers due to their high performance regardless of kick type but are equally at home on the foot of any recreational diver.
The high quality natural rubber makes them incredibly strong and robust. The high density of the materials means that they are negatively buoyant which is a welcome benefit for drysuit divers to help prevent the feet from becoming positively buoyant and help to maintain balance and trim.
The bungee strap is made from the same strong material as the Mares speargun slings which makes them stretchy but very strong and long lasting. A large heel pad with grip loop makes the fins easy to get on and off. The fins are also supplied with a strap extension piece that lengthens the bungee straps by approximately 15mm if needed. The foot pockets are large and full length making the fin comfortable to wear and ensures a good power transfer to the blade.

Mares Power Plana Fin - Features
?Advances in design, materials and manufacturing techniques has allowed the development of various differenet types of fin blades which control the movement of water in different ways.
More advanced blades, including split and hinged blades, can dramatically increase efficiency, helping to improve propulsion but also lower the amount of energy required to operate the fins.

?Fins are available in two fitting types, open heel and full foot pocket.
Open Heel are typically used for scuba diving as they are able to provide better propulsion due to their increased strength and weight.
Full Foot Pocket fins are usually worn by snorkellers who produce significantly less drag when moving through the water compared to a scuba diver. As a result the fins are generally smaller and much lighter.
|Quick Release Buckle|
?Quick release buckles aid fitting and removal of the fins by allowing rapid fitting and release of the fin strap.
Rather than having to loosen the fin strap off before pulling it over your heel to remove the fin, the quick release buckle allows you to disconnect the strap and slide your foot straight out.
?A number of different fin strap styles can now by found on fins including the traditional adjustable rubber strap, metal spring straps and also bungee straps.
Rubber straps can be easily adjusted to suit each individual diver and are typically fitted with quick release buckles.
Spring and bungee straps are generally not adjustable and are sized to suit the fin size, however, they offer an extra level of comfort and flex better during the kick motion.
