omer stingray vs pathos footpocket

I also use Omer stingray foot pockets in size 45 - 46. In Pathos I use 46 -48.

Pathos foot pockets are flatter and broader than the Omer's so will accommodate wider feet a bit better.

I have a high foot arch so moulded the Pathos foot pockets to accommodate this by heating the foot pockets up with a heat gun. This little extra effort had the effect of essentially creating custom foot pockets so they are very comfortable.

In terms of performance the Pathos pockets are lighter and the tendons much softer than the stingray allowing the whole fin blade to bend freely and not just hinge on the end of the tendon.

Although the Omer foot pockets are hard wearing and give decent performance / value for money, in my option the Pathos foot pockets are much better and I think you will be pleasantly surprised when you start using them.
