Rob Allen Carbon Freediving Fins
Aside from the spearguns we feel that these carbon freedive fins by Rob Allen are one of the most exciting products on the market. Believe us when we say we have used ‘a lot’ of carbon fins over the years and the reason we have used so many is that carbon fins are prone to breaking! Well 4 seasons on and the same sets are going strong.
There are a few different things to consider when buying a set of carbons, the flex, the comfort, the stiffness and the durability. Trying to find a set that tick all these boxes was like trying to get all the planets aligned – nightmare.
The RA carbons succeed here where all others seem to fail on at least one of the points. They are manufactured using a new technology which allows them to be as flexible as standard carbon while being stronger than fibreglass. This breakthrough is what makes them stand out well above the competition. While you may have to dig deep for these fins, they pay for themselves many times over as the years go buy.
The blades are slightly longer than the standard offerings as they were found to conserve more energy making them more suitable for deeper and longer dives.
Don’t take our word for it, read all the independent reviews online and you will find a whole army of people who wouldn’t swap their RA carbs for any other fin on earth – and for good reason!
