i have owned a pair of omer green tunas for several years and was looking for a stiffer fins. i was recommended the omer milinium comps black, but they are sold out on the 44-46 size foot beds. so i ordered some esclapez black fins. tried them out and they are not as stiff as the omer tunas.

any suggestions for some stiffer big freediving fins??

thanks

If you're happy with the footpocket, I'd stay within the same family. Omer millenium comps or either of the Riffe fins. Both are available from Bluewater Hunter:

Don't know how stiff the Riffe fins are, those Omer footpockets just don't fit me...

Go with the Omer millenium comps !
I have been using Picasso Carbon fins for years, they are probably the stiffest carbon fin you can get. (Stiffer then C40's)

The carbon's cracked during training for the pacific cup then I tried some Omer carbon's. The Omer's were very soft for me and I wasn't happy with them. Borrowed a friends Omer Millenium Comps and set some new depth PB's with them.... 57, 59, 61.
So I ended up using them for my competition dive.

They are stiff(stiffer then esclapez) and for a plastic fin have quite a nice snap, ie flex & return.

I still have to buy a pair myself. Now I'm not sure wether I should even bother with carbon fins or not :duh

Cheers
