MAKO Spearguns Competition Freediver Fiberglass Blades

MAKO Spearguns LONG Blades are 80cm long and considered industry standard length for experienced freedivers.

  • Measurement without foot pockets: 80cm long x 20cm wide
  • Measurement with foot pockets: up to 98cm long x 20cm wide

MAKO Spearguns EXTRA LONG Blades are 85cm long and a product of an increasing trend for longer blades.

  • Measurement without foot pockets: 85cm long x 20cm wide
  • Measurement with foot pockets: up to 103cm long x 20cm wide

Also available in varying stiffness and colors, these blades are hand made in South Africa by experienced craftsman, using only the best material available.

Take your freediving to the next level with this pair of high performance MAKO Spearguns Competition FG (Fiberglass Composite) freedive blades. These blades offer the performance of carbon, but are much more durable, thus offering the performance and durability required by serious freedivers and spearfishermen. With a 20 degree bend and varying stiffness, these blades will fit a variety of foot pockets including the MAKO Spearguns Competition Freediver Foot pockets.

Available in black, camo blue and camo green.

NOTE: There are no holes drilled in these blades so you can install them on your current foot pockets.

Selecting the proper fin length:

Some divers dive well over 200 feet deep with our “LONG” blades (80cm long). While others, diving the same depth, prefer our “EXTRA LONG” blades (85cm long).

Selecting blade length is a personal choice based on many factors, such as the type of diving, diving style, physical make up and even the divers’ personality.

Divers with a slower, more rhythmic kick sequence (sometimes called a lazy kick) tend to like the longer 85cm blades.

Conversely, divers who are a bit more aggressive in their approach to diving and in their personality traits, or for those who possess a faster kick sequence would prefer the standard long fins measuring 80cm long.

Selecting the proper fin stiffness

In selecting the proper fin stiffness, there are many variables to take into consideration such as a divers weight, divers strength, type of diving and conditions in which the diving will be done. The most standard method is selecting fin stiffness based on the diverís weight and strength.

Because a softer blade is rapidly becoming the preferred blade among freedivers, our soft blades are by far the most popular. For very strong divers and big guys, we also carry a medium stiffness.

SOFT blades are recommended for small to medium size divers and are clearly the most popular. Any diver who does not dive frequently also like these blades.

MEDIUM blades are for larger divers with strong legs.

Note: If you have any questions regarding size, blade length or blade stiffness selection, please feel free to call us. We are happy to help.

Our blades are sold by the pair. If you ever loose a fin, MAKO Spearguns will sell just one fin (or blade). Being so heavily invested in unmatched customer service, we are one of the only companies that offer this.

Great fins August 27, 2016
Reviewer: AK Diver from Anchorage, AK United States  
Easy to install, fit well into my OMER Millenium foot pockets even though the old blades were straight.  Soft fins should make for comfortable days of diving.

Looking for more speed? Got it! July 9, 2016
Reviewer: Matthias Wedekind from Stuttgart, Baden-Wrttemberg Germany  
Blades look cool and work really well. The backside tends to scratch so be a bit carefull on rocks. Speed and control of the blades is really good due to the guide rails on the sides.

Excellent fins April 25, 2016
Reviewer: DB from West Palm Beach, FL United States  
I was going to order the medium stiffness but after reading multiple reviews on these fins posted on other sites I decided to go with the extra long soft ones.  I'm 6' 190 and the blades are absolutely perfect.  They fit into my riffe foot pockets within minutes. Fast shipping, great product, thank you
