Thread: Mares Raptor (Split fin)

  1. #1

    Mares Raptor (Split fin)

    I guess this is mostly for the ScubaToys boys. Anyone know anything about the new Mares Raptor fins? And how do they compare to the other splits on the market?

    Looking at them when the rep brought them in, they appear to be very close to the Tusa. We've got some heading our way, and when they get in, anyone is more than welcome to come give them a spin. We'll put some pairs out at our pavilion at CSSP as well in case someone wants to try them where there is more room than our pool.

    Larry have you ever thought of giving a comparison between the Raptor and the Oceanic V12?

    I would mind your views or another persons wrap on the fins

    Just got off the phone with the mares rep and he tells me they are on the way to us so we should have them by the end of the week!

    The fist shipment will only be in the medium size and the colors will be Yellow, Red, Blue and their new Green! They will sell for $139.95 to the rest of the world but for you guys they will be $125.00 then with your 10% discount that’s $113.00 for the next 30 days!

    Thanks

    So what is the verdict?
    Are these fins as good as they report to be?
