I think they are made out of different materials. But I am not sure. I do know that the classic does not have an angle in the blade and the Pro does.

Hi again,

Stereo Classic blades are made of fibre-glass, hand-tapered. They are without an angle as it is not possible to produce fibre-glass blades with angle.

Stereo Pro blades have an angle and are made of special hand-laminated rasin mixture, which is then processed in moulds under vacuum. Through hand-lamination process it is possible to modify the characteristics of the blades vary precisely. E.g. stiffness. It is possible to achieve very "alive" blades, produced according to personal wishes of the user. Hand-lamination also allows to use rasins in different colour, i.e. blades with different outlook.

With your positive testimony, I'll probably just go ahead and order a pair of these (I can handle 200 bones). It would cost about the same to order a pair of blades from Waterway, and a set of pockets from the db store. And this way, I won't have to rack my nerves drilling any holes in the blades.


Hi, sorry for the delayed reply. The Matrix blades have no angle, same as the Waterway blades. The manufacturing method will not allow the heel angle at this price point. However, when Mike Gower, Director of US Finswimming saw them he said "oh, more powerful configuration..." The summary is - they're very durable and very similar (if not identical) performance to carbon.

Matrix Blades info

Hi Everyone!
Just for info :
The Matrix blades are WaterWay blades. It supposed to be small 'of WaterWay' sticker on the blades. Totally the product is absolutely the same so as WW is the only manufacturer in the World of them. Matrix is our seller and gives really good service to customers.
The stiffnesses of the blades, of course, are totally the same.
Anybody can also buy from the manufacturer directly: www.finswimming.ca in North America or connect to headoffice www.finswimworld.com from other countries for information.
Matrix (www.20fathoms.com) sells the blades with fotpockets like Sporasub.
WaterWay stock in Toronto doesn't sell the footpockets so as it's product of other company and we sell only our products as a policy of company.

The colors of the blades depend on the pool of fiberplastic that comes from the factory and can be brown or light-brown.

In nearest future we will up our prices a bit to make the gap with sellers not so big.
