Hey gang,

Been cruising around the site for over a month and have gotten some great information. My question is which carbon fin would be best for spearfishing? I currently use Cressi 2000 HF (second pair) and have noticed that they don't have quite the snap that I want. I have done freedives (no gun) down to around 150 feet and notice that the Cressi's don't seem to have much snap past 70 or 80 feet. I am seriously considering carbons but have not had the chance to sample any. I have seen the Sporasub Carbon Pure and it looks soft and a bit whippy. I have also seen the Picasso Carbona's and they looked about right. Only thing is that I heard that they are a killer on the surface. Anybody out there tried the Carbonprene or Carbona's? Also heard a rumor that Cressi is coming out with another blade that is supposedly stiffer and a bit linger than the 2000 HF. Anybody tried or heard any thing? Thanks gang.

Hi Pug ,
Welcome to the gang ...:)
If you look around underwater you will notice that not too many spearo's use carbon blades ; unless they have more than one set of fins and use the carbons for bluewater hunting .
Those carbons get pretty nervous if they only see the reef .
Swimming back to the surface from 30 m. plus with a stubby on one foot is less fun than it might sound .
I would recommend looking at for instanc the OMER range of plastics . I use the older Tuna comps. and there have been many good reports of the new models here .
Hope this helps .

OMERs & Picassos are the most popular amongst spearos. I've got a pair of 44-46 Millenium Carbon Pros by OMER if you're interested/have the feet to fit. :confused: 1/2 price and less than a year old w/ just a handful of dives on them.
