The X Shot Fins are an evolution in diving. Technologies proven successful with the SlighShot and HotShot fins have been incorporated into the X Shot to offer the ultimate in comfort and performance through innovations such as the mid-foot pivot to eliminate foot and toe fatigue often experienced by divers and the “Power Transmission Zone” for efficient kicking. The X Shot comes standard with the Aqua Lung Spring Straps for easy don and doffing. This fin is the ultimate in hybrid technologies, offering an easy kicking fin for your dives while providing optimal power with each kick.
The Power Zone, located in front of the foot pocket, features integrated “V Boosters”, providing optimal power with each kick
The Power Zone provides the diver a mid-foot pivot point on the fin, minimizing fatigue and maximizing energy transfer to the blade
A new spring strap offers a soft heel pad along with Aqua Lung’s own proprietary buckles
The foot pocket is equipped with the “Power Transmission Zone”. This anchors the foot preventing unnecessary stretching of the foot pocket on the power stroke resulting in maximum energy transmission
The blade contains a high performance elastomer resulting in high efficiency
An elastic blade insert creates a “spoon effect” that pushes more water with each down stroke adding to efficiency
A customized inner sole provides a grip effect. This prevents wasting power from the boot moving laterally inside the boot pocket
Restyling of a legend, comes equipped with the patented Mares bungee strap
• Increased efficiency with the use of new hi-flex material • Four channels – four times the thrusting power • Bungee strap
The new Avanti Quattro + fins exceeds the established performance of the traditional model thanks to the use of new materials that optimize efficiency. Greater responsiveness and thrusting power with an even more attractive look. New Bungee Strap is provided standard. Proven Channel Thrust technology makes the fins versatile and ideal in all diving conditions. The stabilizers improve stability, eliminating ankle twisting phenomena. The anatomical foot pocket conveys more power to the blade.

The foot pockets use a soft rubber around the foot and arch for comfort and a stiffer compound along the sides and traction pads for efficient power transfer.
The foot pocket also features an expansion zone on the top of the pocket that expands and contracts to allow the fins to be worn barefoot in warmer climates or with socks in cooler waters without the need to have a different size fin.
Cressi – Frog Plus Open-Heel Fins
Cressi’s latest addition to its extensive line of world renowned fins is the Frog Plus open heel scuba diving fin. The Frog Plus features many of the great characteristics of a traditional paddle fin along with introducing a revolutionary new blade material that is both extremely durable and nearly indestructible.
The Frog Plus utilizes Cressi’s patented three material injection molding process. The three materials consist of a nice comfortable rubber on the foot pocket that extends up the side rails of the blade. The second material is the revolutionary new dual density techno polymer which forms the blade, and in conjunction with the third silicone based material creates a channeling effect.
The channeling effect is the characteristic of the fin that enables a high level of energy to be transferred in both up and down strokes of the kick pattern.
The Frog Plus also incorporates Cressi’s patented positioning of the foot pocket below the blade. This design increases the working surface area of the blade by 20%.
The combination of the channeling effect and the foot pocket mounted beneath the blade creates a very powerful and efficient fin with minimal leg strain. Because of these characteristics, the Frog Plus fin is an ideal choice for the entry level to advanced diver.
