reviews of carbon fins?

Hey guys, I currently have Mares Razor Pro fins which are plastic. I'm looking into making a transition to carbon but don't exactly have $500 laying around. I have read a couple good things about Leaderfins stereofins, thoughts? or do you know any other carbons where you get a bang for your buck?

Make the investment in moanas. Last fins you'll need to buy

My son is using (and loving) his leaderfins for more than 2 years. Not a single problem.

Is he using the fiberglass ones, carbon ones, or mixed ones?

Mixed mounted on Mares footpockets.

Those GFT ate a good deal though.
