The Omer Stingray line has delivered one of its more unique and interesting designs in the new EVO product, ideal for spearfishing mainly, but also freediving. This will appeal to more experienced finners.

The new khaki brown color makes them visible on the surface, but you remain camouflaged when hunting down on a sandy seabed. The long keyhole in the center of the blade improves performance by channeling water and directing the blade during movement.

In addition, the hole reduces the amount of force required to move the fin in the blade’s less ‘active’ section, as most of the elastic energy is released at the tip.

Omer has pulled this one out of the bag, producing one of the best freediving fins on the market. Low-modular polypropylene material is used to create these Stingray fins. As a result, they have a medium firmness that is an ideal balance between being overly soft or rigid, great for a strong or heavy beginner.

The blade’s water ribs are the first thing you’ll notice in your first dive with these fins as the water is more efficiently directed; giving you more control and spring simultaneously.

Finally, what’s cool is that, while a traditional full-foot design is included, the boot-to-blade angle sits at 22 degrees instead of the typical 15 or 17-degree angle. Research has shown that this design enhances your range of motion, which is the most effective way to increase your forward propulsion.
