WTB: Used Dive Fins size 8 or 9
« on: May 12, 2010, 08:27:07 AM »
Hey Guys,

Im fairly new to spearfishing, and have now joined the madness. I need to upgrade my split fins to some real free dive fins, as I cant seem to get down deep with the current. I havent tried the longer fins yet, so I really have no idea what to expect, but the folks I keep running into are highly recommending them. Im not the strongest kicker as of yet, so if you have a less rigid pair of fins in size 8 or 9 laying around in the garage for sale, please let me know. Thanks for your time,

Geoff

 I have a set of open heel blades that are perfect for getting your calfs ready for full on freedive fins they worked great for me and now I wear blackteams fins. Whats your budget I will sell them cheap. PM me and we can talk more....

I came home last night to find these delivered.  I have yet to try them out but Im excited.  I think it is a pretty good price for an entry level fin.

You have to tell me how those fins work out for you bud! Thats a pretty good deal for brand new fins too.

Awesome advice, thanks Matt! To tell you the truth, I didnt even know about the fin keepers. I currently use hard zip up booties but will one day convert if I find a pair of long fins

Fin keepers are a must have, losing a fin can be frustrating, costly and dangerous.  They actually make my fins a little more efficient, since there's no more slippage of my foot in the foot pocket.

Ya I didn’t know about them until I stated researching fins.  Good call posting this and probably keeping a newbie like me from losing one of their brand new fins

You have to tell me how those fins work out for you bud! Thats a pretty good deal for brand new fins too.

I sure will.  I’m not going to get out this weekend but will be diving Fri-Sun next weekend so a report will follow.
