Is it big enough?

Hello all
Sorry about another fins thread I just can't find much info on it.

I have been a looking at some new fins recently (carbon) and came across the alchemy v3 and v3 30. I prefer the footpocket of the v3 but the blade only comes in 75cm. The v3 30 however has 80cm blade but I've heard bad stuff about the footpocket. I would prefer to go for the v3 but I am not sure whether the 75cm blade will be long enough to be efficient or powerful.

Has anyone got any thoughts on this short length of blade or any other suggestion for other carbon blades (preferably not c4).

Thanks for reading

Btw I did try the search functions multiple times out of frustration of the lack of information. Haha

My guess is that I could not tell the difference if I cut 5 cm from my blade (bad technique). It depends on the stiffness as well. Foot pocket comfort is a big deal, so take the one that fits. Even better if they take new blades later, then you know which way to go.
