Feel free to add the weight of your fins.

The following fins fit my Nike/New Balance size 11 foot with 3mm or 5mm boots with a sole (Mares Classic). I get these weights on the following fins:

Scubapro Jet Fin size XL - 6.5 pounds (spring straps added*)
OMS Slipstream size XL - 5 pounds
Deep Six Eddy Fin size L - 5 pounds
Mares Avanti Quattro size Regular - 4.5 pounds (spring straps added*)
Aeris (Oceanic) Accel size Large - 3.5 pounds
Scubapro Go Sport size Large - 3.5 pounds

*All weights as purchased except the Jet Fin and Quattro that have aftermarket spring straps.

Weights to the nearest 1/4 pound.

The idea, lol, was to get the weight for a pair of fins. Not what fins you own, wink, wink. The published weights are often not accurate or averaged for all sizes. It might be useful to some folks, maybe, maybe not.

Dry weight. But if you have buoyancy numbers to match that is cool too.
