I'm wondering if anyone has tested or used the carbono 21 fins, and if so, how do you like them?

I am looking to buy a pair of carbon fins, but I am unsure of which ones to buy. I would prefer one that is not too fragile though, as the carbono 21 for example.

Finally, has anyone tested the new sporasub variant carbon fins?

Safe diving!

hi Kirehe,

I've got the Picasso Carbono's III, which is the model before the 21's. Don't know if there is much difference although now they have a stiff, and a soft model. Pretty sure mine would be similar flex to the stiff one, it's pretty close to the normal plastic blackteam's.

In general they are pretty tough, been taking them to the pool for training for over a year. Had people put scuba gear on them.
:(
I have however got a slight crack in one blade - right under the footpocket. It's not bad I plan to patch it with some fiberglass. You do get scrathes on the tip of the blade, so I put electrical tape on it.

One thing I don't like about them is the side rails of the footpocket keeps coming off the blade. Glue should fix it, but then the blades are no longer removeable.

Performance wise they are better then plastic fins, but I've never tried another carbon fin to compare them too. They are a pretty good all round fin, can use for spearfishing and deeper dives. I have used the fins around rocky bottoms, they will scratch but don't break.

I'm probably getting some C4 carbons, or Omers mainly to get a stiffer fin for deep dives. Hoping to do some 50m+ dives.
