hello there,
i'm a novice of freediving and would like to purchase my first pair of freediving fin.
i'm wondering about the difference between "cressi gara modular" and "cressi gara modular ld", the links are below:
https://www.cressi.com/catalogue/details.asp?id=803
https://www.cressi.com/catalogue/details.asp?id=1051

basically i only see the difference on blade...so if i install the modular ld's thermalplastic blade to gara modular then there's no difference anymore?

i hope the gara modular series have no flaws because their foot pocket fit my foot well while other brands or fins couldn't...
does anyone have any feedback of these fins?pros and cons?

any reply will be appreciated~!

The LD blades are just softer than the normal plastic blades. Those are great foot pockets if they fit your foot well. You might need to call around once you're ready to upgrade the blades since not every aftermarket blade fits them easily.

@Benthic thanks!!
is it possible to install fiberglass/carbon blade to the gara modular?
or it is only for plastic blades?
Yes u can upgrade them to carbon (no cressi fiberglass blade available as my best knowledge), but it will be expensive and cressi gara carbon is not in the top list of Carbon fins in the market to pay for it.

Regards
