Where do you M-technic fins at? I'm just doing a little bit of research in the way of possibly getting my first set of carbons and just wanted to get an idea of how your suppost install your own foot pockets or can you get them already built up for you?

M-Technics are usually only sold at international competitions (in-person), and they are usually only sold to actual competitors & coaches, preference going to anyone with a well known name, in the case of a shortage.

However, given the new thread on the waterway longblades, it is starting to look like M-Technic and C4 carbons are obsolete.

Overly Dramatic

Eric,

You're right, I think I might have got a little overly dramatic with my claim about Waterway's new blades possibly making all other fins obsolete. But I do believe that with their carbonesque (is that a word?) performance combined with their low price gives them great potential. I'd like to see them get made with a bend in the heel though. What's your thoughts about this? Have you ever used bi-fins with strait blades? Please keep in mind that my experience is limited only to freedive spearfishing and I've only been doing that for about 4 years now so any insight you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Scott T.

I have tried the M-technic mediums with sporasub footpockets, and I liked them just as much as the C4 Falcon 40's.

However, I use a waterway blade on my monofin, because this strange material (FR4?) seems to work better than any carbon monofin I have ever used, so it doesn't surprise me that bifins in the same material would beat carbons....
