Good Morning or whatever time it is in your country,

I just started to get a crush on Freediving since im staying in Greece for a whole semester (1 1/2 month to go). I did a lot of research regarding fins which I could buy and heck greece is quite expensive in this terms. So I fell in love with the Cressi Modular Black and looked for a shop with reasonable prices. But what I have found there was pretty surprising:

C4 Carbon Minimal FS-30 Blades - 79€
C4 400 Footpockets - 33€
----------> Carbon Fins for - 112€

The Cressi Gara Modular are also on "discount" for
Cressi Gara Modular - 95€

I really have no idea what I should do, as the Cressi Gara are just at 69€ in my home country it feels a bit bad to buy them here for 95. So could anyone recommend the carbon fins?

When I am in shallow water I still have some snorkeling fins to avoid damaging the carbon ones.

I would be grateful for any advice


EDIT: Whoops I just saw my mistake on this. The price is just for one Blade, not a pair Oh well, decision is made, even if it hurts.

Thanks for reading anyway ;D

I did wonder if the blades might not be for a pair but couldn't make sense of the website, "all greek to me". Blades are sonetimes sold singly in case of breakage.

It's a pity replacement blades aren't priced more competitively.

I yesterday bought the Cressi Gara Modular Impulse costing 105€. The Vendor and freediving instructor was telling me its the new version, and 10er more I mean come on haha so I did some research and I dont regret it!

For the carbon blades, even if its single blades the c4 seem to be good and for around 180€ I can later upgrade if I stick with freediving :)

Seem like a good option to me
