I have been doing lots of diving in pools lately, and even though I am soaking the fins afterwards, I am getting this white discoloring on the softest parts of the foot pocket. I have Picasso, Black Team fins, is this a problem with this fin? I am putting silicone spray on now and that seems to take the discoloration away, a litte. :head

Hey Tim! Glad to see you found the site! When are you coming to Biloxi to dive? Been pretty good lately. Talk to you soon.
Mike:D :D :D :D

Welcome to the forums. It's a great place to hang out and learn.

I have been using the Picasso Black Team fins for over two years and have not any problems or discoloration of any kind. Granted I have had them in a pool only once, so not sure how they react to extended chlorine exposure.

I do know that I beat them mercilessly against limestone rocks about once a week and, other than the scratches, they're still in great shape.

Hey Mike! Whats up fella? I am doing some "training" here in hot as hell Louisiana. I dont want my first trip to dive the rigs to be fruitless. I am getting better at this breath holding thing and I am now up to 3:00 min static apnea, of course that doesn't translate well in the water. I am hooked up with the "stickmen" freedivers. I am only training though. Talk to you soon.
Come on guys...I know for a fact more of you use the Picasso BT fins yet noone wants to give a new member any help? Like me Tim lives in an area without many freedivers and can use all the help he can get from us.......
I have found that silicone spray works well to take away the discoloration. I dont know what it was, but I found the solution.
