A message from Dano:
"I guarantee these fins and foot pockets to be the finest fins/foot pockets available. Before producing these fins, I met with several fin factories around the world. The factory I chose is the same factory that also makes fins and foot pockets for 2 of the most highly respected freedive gear companies in the world. It gives me great pleasure to offer such high quality fins. And because we sell direct to you the diver, we can do it for less."

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 diver's 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. Larger divers who do not dive frequently also tend to like these softer blades.
MEDIUM blades are for larger divers with strong legs.
Note: Sold by the pair. If you ever loose a fin, MAKO Spearguns will sell just one fin. Being so heavily invested in unmatched customer service, we are one of the only companies that offer this.
