MANTIS DRY FIN

Optimized for weight, balance, and propulsion during scuba diving and skin diving,
these strap fins are especially
made for use with dry suits.

  • Sense like the foot Foot pocket designed

    The foot pocket is formed using a thin and pliant rubber material. This makes the fins easy to put on and take off.

  • Fin work and efficiency Middle-range blade

    Designed with a blade length shorter than ordinary fins, these also shorten the time for which the rubber material flexes to help accomplish nimble and efficient fin work. Moreover, to achieve maximum performance in these middle-range fins of the sense of pliant grip obtained when using rubber fins, the height of the keel at the rear has been slightly lowered, for a design that yields greater comfort.

  • Greater propulsion Hybrid rubber

    To enable these fins to powerfully, yet smoothly, deliver tenacious propulsive power, Gull’s innovative production methods integrate different pliant and resilient types of rubber for the foot pocket, blade, and ribs.

  • Strong in a downkick Rib shape

    The ribs on the Mew are designed with the down kick in mind. At this time when power is most easily converted to propulsion, Mew Fins firmly catch the water. Providing pleasing response to strong or subtle kicks, they suit a variety of conditions and are loved by both power divers and occasional divers, who have different leg strengths.

*Be aware that, depending on the boot, sizing may be different to that shown. Fit also depends on the individual form of your feet: for some people the sizes shown may be too large or too small.

Performance

Fin weight comparison

The greater mass of the thick soles of Dry Fins shifts the center of gravity further down the leg than ankle weights. This makes it easier to keep your trim stable.
*Assuming 500 g ankle weights are worn.

Comparison with Mantis Fin

With a bigger boot pocket they are easier to get on and off. Ankle weights are not needed because the fins themselves have sufficient mass. If you are confident in your leg strength and want fins that provide more dynamic propulsion, these fins are made for you.
