She looks to be a super delta.. but does come from an HM line.. you would end up with super deltas and HMs with her.. keep in mind, you won't ever get a 100% HM spawn - there will always be a mix of deltas in an HMxHM spawn.. you just get more HM with the "perfect" HM girl.
She is beautiful though.. love the red, not a whole lot of irid.. good topline, nice big dorsal, big tail, a little long anal but nothing major.. I would get her :)
See if the seller has any more females similar, or colors that you want.. make it worth the price to get her as importing a single fish can get pricey and you never know if the fish will even breed once you get them. So see if they can toss in another nice female as backup for you for cheap.. usually a breeder doesn't mind throwing in another female.. I've had them do it on their own lol.
But if you have the money and time (sometimes can take a couple weeks to get to you), then I'd go for her.. she will bring in a nice color to your male, and you can always work on getting better fins by working the line (mating the best female from the spawn with father, or male with mother, or siblings, etc). Your male has good fins, so some of that should carry over :)
Another tip though - get a Petco/Petsmart female and try breeding her with your guy. She doesn't have to be perfect, but it will give you experience and hopefully give your male experience in breeding.. see if you can raise the fry, see if the male will make a good daddy.. etc. Nothing wrong with breeding pet store bettas, you just end up with more of a surprise with the colors in the end :) This way you know what you are doing, your male gets experience before you attempt the red girl - not always easy finding the right fish you want, so when you do you want to make sure to take precautions lol. But that is up to you.
