i am looking for a cheap plastic fins for mid-shallow depth 2-10m and surface swimming so 22 degree angale or more be good.

i used mares razor but they too soft and too wide so i looking for something else.

i tried at store the beucaht mundail competion 39-40 bare foot and the footpocket feel good but i need to use 3 mm sock so i dont know how 41-42 will be and the angale is less than 22 degree.

I've been using Beuchat Competition fins for more than a decade. I even bought a second pair a while back, just in case.

They have a good reputation for fitting narrow feet well. But I have wide, stocky, stubby feet and they fit me great too :)

Re. Fit. I generally wear shoes EU45/UK10.5 and boots EU46/UK11. My fins are, I think, size 45-46. In cold conditions I wear neoprene socks, probably around 3mm thick (I'm on my 3rd and 4th pair of neoprene socks, which have varied in thickness). In very warm conditions I sometimes wear them without socks, because I don't need the warmth but I do need the room as my feet swell - perfect!

I dive up to 5 hours at a time without discomfort, they are comfortable. I'm quite large and they have stood up well.

My current "cheap" fins are Imersion E-greys. I have wide feet, dive in fairly cold water, and wear 44-46 with 5mm socks. My expensive Imersions are E-carbons, which I've been using for 8-9 years. They have been great, but I prefer the greys if I have to cross rocks to get in and out of the water.
