Great product. Best fins I’ve owned to date. Hopefully they are durable enough to withstand years of diving.
It's worth that money i paid. I think the footpockets are not as high quality as the blades.
A few years ago, I needed a pair of new blades when I lost my beloved pair of Fiberglass DiverR's to 6000ft of water. I quickly was interested in Alchemy because of their high quality engineering processes in development of these blades. I always try to give my business to a company that does things the right way and stands behind their product. I love the lightweight of these blades and also durability of them when spearfishing. Customer service is also excellent and responded with a youtube video for an issue I had. I was able to fix immediately. This is a great company that produces an exceptional product with engineering processes. I will buy my next pair from them if mine ever break, but I don't think they will.
I'm using V3-30 with C4 300 footpockets for two seasons and they are by far the best carbon fins I had (I had Carbontek and Mtehnic). I'm using them in summer and winter up to 25m with 4-6 kg weights and I'm around 105 kg. I bought medium stiffness. My dive are mostly with a lot of swimming (no boat) and finally I have great combination on my feet - I don't get tired after more than 6 hours in the sea. Dive ascend has never been so easy, descent is little bit harder because I think I should bought medium-hard fins. But no regrets and not looking back :)
It's a very good fin, but the price is too high.
Built with great quality and care. Great for traveling and all around enjoying the ocean. Snorkeling exploring the reef and going on the line these are fun easy to travel with fins.
Usually, i use V330 for doing spearfishing and freediving. Recently, i turned to S30. It's different but i don't regret my choice. They are more in adequation with my spearfishing style. Good handmade construction and nice packaging with the serial number for the 5 years warranty! You can go on it with closed eyes!!!
Satisfied with the best. Please make a blade that is more than 10cm longer than now. It will be Alchemy's innovation.
