Hi all!
Because my picasso black team fins are begining to be a little to small, i am going to buy some new. After a little surf on the internett and on scubastore i am thinking of one of these fins:

- Cressisub Gara 3000 (http://www.scubastore.com/shop.asp?id_familia=3&id_subfamilia=18)

- SPORASUB, H.DESSAULT PURE CARBON (http://www.scubastore.com/shop.asp?id_familia=3&id_subfamilia=18)

- SPORASUB, PURE GRAFIBER (http://www.scubastore.com/shop.asp?id_familia=3&id_subfamilia=18)

Someone who has experience with some of these fins, or maby have suggestion for some other fins?
From everything I have heard forget the Pure carbons, they are absolute crap (from what i have heard) if you want to get carbon fiber fins invest in a pari or C4's
Cressis are good :p
sporasubs look good, but have no idea about them at all, its more or less the same as the OMER BAT fins but with a toe angle
From what I see you don't really have a budget for your fins (Pure fins cost like 250€) i suggest you get some SPECIALFINS!!!
THese fins are amazing handmade super things! They are made just the way you want them

Forget plastic, only worth to get in caves... for long or/and dive deep get fiberblades.

Have a look at the Matrix: awesome power, easy to swimm around (progressive blade) and look at the prize!!!

I never heard of anybody had snap a pair... really reassuring!

180cm and 75kg, I start to get cramps with black escalpez after 5-6h of good current swimming. With the #4 matrix I'm still waiting for a cramp and my diving buds :D. But must people like the #3: an "easy on the legs" blade with plenty of backbone.

Specialfins have good angled blades and get excellent reports (I need to get a pair to find out). Any of those two blades could easily be a better choice than must of the carbon junk you can see out there :naughty .

With any of those blades you want to be really careful at the stiffness you choose: better if you are able to try first.

You can find plenty of threads about the bats (Omer), but I don't think they are better than the Matrix... well they look better! but for your bucks you can get a better fin... and a can of paint!

Of course with plenty of cash you want a pair of C4... like the rest of us :waterwork !
