I have bought a pair of C4 Falcon 80 and Sporasub footpockets.
The problem is that the part of the footpocket that attaches to the blade on each side after some time, goes loose,and my fins look like shown on the picture:

I've tried to glue them but I doesn't seem to help.Am I the only one that has such a problem?If someone has a good advice ,its welcome.
I saw here in the Deeperblue shop that there are C4 Spetton footpockets available.Maybe that
a better choice than Sporas .

As far as I can see Spetton are more or less the same as Sporasub.
As for your problem, I suspect your glue of being inadequate.

I think people are using bathtub caulking with good success.

One of my 40s did that and when I tried to kick off the bottom it broke. The 80s don't seem to have a big enough edge to hold them in the OMER pockets and if you glue them full length, it stiffens the blade noticeably. When the Performance team was here, Martin suggested Duck tape and I wrapped a piece around the fin near the end of the side rails. Seems to work OK and doesn't feel any different.
