    C4 Silversea HT or Molchanovs C1?

    I've been looking for information of carbon bifins for a long time. My first pair was HELM, and one of them snapped in the swimming pool... Now I aim at these two fins. C4 Silversea is made of TR50 carbon, and it seems to be full of high-end techs (but the 300 line foot pockets seem hard to put...

    Is it big enough?

    Hello all Sorry about another fins thread I just can't find much info on it. I have been a looking at some new fins recently (carbon) and came across the alchemy v3 and v3 30. I prefer the footpocket of the v3 but the blade only comes in 75cm. The v3 30 however has 80cm blade but I've heard...

    Cressi Gara 3000 sizing

    Hi, Just as a lot of other people I am facing the dilemma of ordering fins online. The local shops stock mostly bright coloured tourist stuff and some Chinese rebranded fins. So instead I am looking to order online. There are some good sales on Cressi's Gara 3000 and Gara Modularfins at the...

    Travelling with carbon fins. Best bags/storage?

    The thread I could find on this topic was from 2007, so I'll be so rude as to make a new one! :sneaky: Like we all know the airlines and ground staff are not very careful when handling / loading luggage. I'm not worried for all my other stuff, but I can't imagine it being good for carbon...

    Hi everyone! Newby asking for fin buying advice

    HI everyone! I just recently got into freediving and went on my first dive with a friend here in barton springs austin tx. I borrowed his U.S. divers open heel fins and jumped in the water. My natural instinct was to do the dolphin kick and i was flying like a beast! I have never worn fins...

    Guys, buying a pair of medium stiffness dive r innegra blades soon. What's the best foot pocket that won't damage the blade, transfer full power, not get destroyed easily and not work my legs like a cheap hooker?

    Carbon fin use/care in pool

    Hello, I am going to get some carbon fins and I will train in the pool with them. I was told by a friend that you should not stand while wearing carbon fins (I guess they may break?). Is this true? If so, that is bad news because I stand in the shallow end of the pool between DYN sets.

    Fin stiffness

    Hello, I have been spearfishing about 8months now. I started with plastic fins and ended up buying some DiveR FG fins in med stiffness as I got a really good deal. I weigh 150lbs and I do a mix of shore diving as well as boat diving. So far I'm diving in 50ft or less (intend on doing deeper with...

    Looking for advice on spray painting Freedive fins

    Hola! I am new to the forum. I have recently purchased a pair of Cressi Gara 3000 in gray [picture attached]. I don't find the gray particularly flattering and am considering spray painting them a solid black (including the foot pockets). Any thoughts on this? Will it look uneven and weird...

    Feedback from honest Freedivers?

    Hey divers, I'm part of a relatively new freediving team who created an online store for freediving equipment. Now hold on, I'm not asking you to buy anything. I just want to know if we're going in the right direction, and I figure there's no better place for honest feedback than from actual...

    Budget carbon fins - 2017?

    Planning for a equipment upgrade. Today I'm using a stiff, heavy and unresponsive Cressi Gara Modular plastic fin, so upgrading to carbon fins will be a huge step up from today! :D I have been browsing extensively to gather info on what would suit me the best. I don't really have the budget...

    Ladies fins

    Hi, I have size AUS7 feet, very narrow, hence I haven't got much choice.... I like the look of Mako (size 4-5), any info on them? i.e. are they narrow fit? Has anyone else tried other brands? Is it worth getting a carbon fibre or is fibre glass okay? Soft or medium stiffness for a small sized...
