THOR PRICE $179.95; $189.95 with EBS straps CON­TACT cressi.com

With a big, soft-cen­tered blade set at a pro­nounced an­gle, the Thor scoops up a fair amount of water with each kick, but the tri­an­gu­lar vents along the side of the blade help keep things mov­ing with­out stress on the legs. That earned the Thor a very good score for ef­fi­ciency in the flut­ter kick, where divers noted its abil­ity to main­tain a good turn of speed with rel­a­tively lit­tle ef­fort. Our test fins had ad­justable straps that per­formed well enough, but the Thor is avail­able with the EBS bungee strap we’ve used (and liked very much) on other Cressi fins. As with some of the other new fins in our test, the Thor was avail­able at test time in limited sizes, but those who could wear it rated it very good for com­fort and fi t. “Nice, solid fin,” was a typ­i­cal test-diver com­ment.
