Carbon fins

In the market for a pair of carbon fiber fins. For the price its looking like Mako is going to be the winner. Would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions. Thanks.

Just got a pair of Deep Apnea Biaxials for around $250 at Divers Direct. They are freakin wonderful. Upgraded from fiberglass and have been freediving for 3ish years in case youre wondering..

Re: Carbon fins

Just got a pair of carbon fiber fins from mako I have made about 10 dives on them all being on scuba and so far Iím very happy with them. I previously owned neptonics and lost one fin in rough seas and neptonics wonít sell just one, mako claims if you lose one they will sell just one, I also got the 2mil short sock and itís very comfortable

Re: Carbon fins

The price is good on the makos but i've ready some bad reviews (these are leaderfin make).

I friend of mine was so dissatisfied with them he returned them. Although there is nothing really in that price range other than them.

Thanks! For giving me the chance to remind everyone that our Carbon Fins are no longer Leader Fins. We have an improved fin.

This is an entirely different blade; we have gotten excellent feedback on these blades from our customers. Please check out the link below for additional information.

Re: Carbon fins

^ thanks for the update and sorry for spreading false information about it being leader-fin. I think you guys have the best customer service and I use a lot of your gear personally and it performs well so there is a commitment to quality at a great price point.

That shows in that you took the effort to switch carbon makes to a different blade to improve your product. A lot of companies as established as your probably wouldn't bother and just keep selling the leader fin.
