I m stardet on a open water course for a couple of weeks a go and my intructor teached me frog kicks. I found out in the pool training that these fins does not work well with this kicks . In the store (not yours) they said that these fins were great fins and I would have no problems with them.. But of course.. with my luck.. they didn t work for me
Volo Race fins are good, very comfortable. They may require effort, but they are FRAGILE WARNING. After 10 months of use the tip of the fin is already cut (link between the rubber and the rigid part). The joint system is already completely cracked. I had the same problem on my first pair of Volo. The Qalité / price ratio is very bad.
Volo vs twin
The Twin Jet goes effordlessly through currents...no worries. Personally I use the old Volo s. I love the Mares fins! Cheers, a PADI Master Instructor
These fins are great they give a similar amount of trust as the Plana avanti x3 but with only half the effort i used both fins and fornd the Volo Power to be much easier to use on the down stroke they stay nice and flat unlike other fins I have used which tend to want to twist on the way down. Only bad thing I will say is you need to be gentle with the ABS strap clips. I put my fin on in a hurry and pulled the strap in such a way that I twisted it and snapped the buckle. But my brother has had his for two years and not broken his. so my advice would be buy these fins they are great but also but a spare set of bickles when ordering there only 10 Eur it would be money well spent.

Outstanding service and great prices, I could track my delivery all the way to my door and well within the estimated time, can t recommend scubastore highly enough !
I have Bought the volo power about one and a half year ago and i am giving them a great Use. I need to say thet they are the best fins i ever had. I am diver since more then 15 years and i have used a few of them as many of you divers i guess. I need to recognize that the volo power are not Good to dive with currents,but for the rest of Normal diving for me they are defenetly thes best. Come over to noronha to a wreckdive too la corvetta. Amazing!! Thanks Michael(Brasil)
Volo power fins
A warning to anybody thinking of buying these fins! I have made only 26 dives (10 months old) with these fins and they are falling to pieces allready, a lot of other people I know in my dive club had the same problem, I sent pictures to Scubastore and there help was excelent, BUT! Mares are not intrested and say it s ware and tare, be warned Mares are not easy people to deal with over waranty claims.Instuctors and divemasters at my club all recommend Scubapro Twin Speed fins and say avoid Volo Power fins, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Mares volo power fins v scubapro twin jet (black)
This is an update to my previous report on these fins, my wife has just managed to get her fins replaced by Mares after only 35 dives, I was not so lucky, we generaly agree that for boat diving on holiday (tropical waters) these fins are ok, but for shore diving where your fins take much more abuse, you should stay away from these fins, they are very very easly damaged. We have both moved over to Scubapro Twin Jets and have now found the best fins you can buy, they are a joy to swim with, not cheap! but then the best never is (indestructible) there are different colour twinjets black,grey & yellow, you should only buy the black as the others have to soft a compound material.

Best fins ever
I Have just purchased these fins, and dived with them twice, they are the best i have ever had. Very fast delivery too! Thanks
Propulsion and effort very well compensated, shame they are so deviles termination at the ends of the ribs with flexible rubber parts are very deviles. After no more than 20 dives I have them under continuous observation since I left cracks. In the same model of other divers they got it.
