    APS Mantarays tic all boxes. They are positively buoyant, small and lightweight, can fit in carry on luggage. I own a pair of black ones, but did see a pair of yellow ones on eBay one time. I also had a pair of FF pros in black. Sweet fin but not positively buoyant. If you use a comfort instept insert it will make them neutral. You can sometimes find a used pair on eBay at decent prices, otherwise new ones are very expensive. My new favorite fin is the Aeris Accel, although they only come in black or gray, you can get bright colored straps and insert. They are also neutrally buoyant. All three fins are excellent travel fins. They Mantarays and Force Fins have unique shapes that are easily recognizable regrardless of color.

    Cheers

    Guess you'd need to buy second hand if you're looking at the Mantarays given they are not currently in production. Hollis did a deal with them of some sort out of which was born the F2s.

    You bet! I'll be interested to hear your feedback/comparison between F2 and Accel.

    I have the Avanti Quattro but find they are too heavy. I end up with sores on the tops of my feet everytime I use them. (Yes I wear boots :) )
    I bought them online as I have no dive shops near me and am now looking for a lighter, shorter travel fin instead. Expensive mistake. :/

    I'm going to try a pair of Aquabionic fins, definitely comes in bright colors!
