Has anyone tested or used these fins? Are they worth the $600 bucks? I usually subscribe to the "You get what you pay for" mentality but that is an outrageous price.

Thanks!

I don't believe there's a fin out there worth 600$ :rcard
Outrageous. Maybe if there are props and a motor on them.
200$ or less will get you into a fin that will do anything you need unless you're diving over 90 metres. I remember Marten Stepanek won the Hawaii Cup wearing those little rubber pool fins, 70 metres+ I believe.
Cheers,

Yikes! Could it be that a combination of a strong Euro, shipping costs, (though probably divided among other items he shipped over) plus customs duties cause that much of an increase? Painful, whichever way you look at it!

LOL! Me too, but you see my point :)
Terry Maas used the old blue Cressi's for 30 metre, 5 mm cold water hunting for years.
I like technology, don't get me wrong: I have some fantastic Spora Radicals that they might just bury me in :blackeye , I wear them so much! But if they'd tried to charge me 600$US, it might have been a :ko
