Hi guys and girls.
Hope I do this post right.

I am the lucky owner of a pair of C4 red falcon HT. I bought Them one year ago with the Omer stingray footpocket. In one year i have changed the footpockets twice. The backside of the finblade, cuts its way, out the bottom of the pocket. I have reached out for help at C4, but they keep telling me, its a bad moulded footpocket. Even when I tell them, its my second pair of Omer stingray pockets. Its both blades that cuts its Way out, so something must be wrong i think.
Have Anyone tried or seen that before?

I have a friend with that same combo, but hasn't run into that issue (yet). He's been using it for years. In fact he has two pairs just like that, but uses one more. It really does look like that pocket is thinned out at the bottom edge where the blade ends. Unless there's something unusual about the blades (which I can't see any thing), I'd have to assume it's the fault of the foot pocket themselves. Maybe a bad run? Couple things. One, I would contact the seller you bought it from and see if any warranty can be had. Two, I would stop using Omer and try a different brand. \

You can try rounding the edge of the blade with fine grit sand paper, but I don't think I'd experiment with that with another Omer pair.
