Start Point carbon fins are here!
We at The Start Point Spearfishing Store have partnered up with Greek artisan Giorgos Karatzas of Blue Green Spearfishing Equipment to bring you the highest quality carbon blades optimised for spearfishing in the UK. These carbon fins are the absolute top of the range and we believe you won’t find any better at this price point.
Among the top carbon blades in the world, they have been used by Start Point team divers and spearfishing instructor the Frenchman for many years and we are delighted he has helped us identify such a high quality product and bring it to the UK. If you are interested in taking your spearfishing to the next level with the most efficient diving experience then these carbon fins are for you.
These carbon blades are graduated parabolic 100% Carbon Aero (as per aircraft standards) and manufactured using the most sophisticated method of vacuum infusion process (VIP). The VIP method ensures the highest carbon to resin ratio up to 75% Carbon: 25% resin by weight. This results in zero trapping of bubbles in the resin and carbon meaning you get maximum efficiency with minimum energy consumption. Leading epoxy resins are used upon very dense weaving. The overall manufacturing process takes two days.
The carbon blades are paired to Pathos Fireblade foot pockets here at the store, and are available in the soft, medium and hard stiffness*:
Soft: Up to 70 Kg
Medium: 70-90 Kg
Hard: 91 Kg upwards
Blade’s angle: 23°
Blade length: 760mm
Blade width: 195mm
*The correct stiffness for you depends on more than just your weight, other factors include how strong a swimmer you are and the depths you dive to. If you are uncertain of the correct stiffness please give us a call, or send us a Whatsapp message and we will be happy to discuss.
If you wish to pair the carbon blades with Pathos foot pockets you will need to add the foot pockets to your basket separately. Please allow us up to 4 working days to complete the process to assemble the carbon fin.
