    I have both the Power Planas and and F1s and the Power Planas are noticeably lighter. I suspect the F1s are slightly more negatively buoyant because both are made of the same material. The Power Planas are good fins but I can't use them shore diving, because the bungee strap is not secure enough to the fin in surf and tends to come off when donning or doffing. I like fins where the strap is positively secured to the fin not held with friction to a plastic post.

    F1s as far as I know, the large sized Mares Power Planars and Zeagle Recins are pretty heavy too. The RK3s are light weight in comparison.
