I think its 2 different classes
not sure on what's the price for the quattro, but i think the Nova is above 200.

I do like the design and have heard good reviews about the nova, where they mention less effort for distance convered.

why wetsuit over fins first? i'd prefer it the other way around.. half the time you can dive without a wetsuit!

That's because you have more blubber dude. ;D muahahha
Anyway, I say go for the Mares Plana, it's bulletproof and highly rated after being around for so long.
Can't comment on the seawings though the white looks nice and clean (for now).

  • 2xKS diver..
If you are new diver, I would say buy a pair of cheap general purpose fins till you figure out what kind of kicking style u like.  Some fins such as the Seawing Nova are very specific to kicking styles. :)
So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...

In that case, 2/3mm wetsuit, less than 100 bucks for a brandless one (taiwan ones), cheap and good.
Hope this helps: http://scubasg.com/index.php?topic=1546.0

I have lesser model mares X3 version not the quatro one and I hate it. It often gives me cramp, in my personal experience nothing beat split fins. Not sure with Sea Wing Nova, never tried before.
