Thanks for the comparison! Very helpful for fin purchasing 🙂
right now the ms delta viper and stealth fins are the best ….
What are your thoughts on Churchills? I tried on some DaFins and they felt extremely comfortable without any fin socks. I will only be using fins for bodyboarding. What do you mainly use them for?
I like Churchill’s. I’ve had about 10 pair through the years. you always need booties with them. Without the booties I find them to be very uncomfortable. They just don’t have the takeoff speed that you find with some of the others. I use the fins for bodyboarding as well as body surfing; usually at Newport by the Point and at the Wedge.
why dafin over viper? voit is the worst for sure
Would you ever consider selling that viper?
I had a pair of DaFin for about a year. Really liked them. The only problem was that the would rub the tip of my 2nd toes and cause sores. If I wrap my toes with waterproof bandage, I’d be fine.
DaFin is so confortable and powerfull. Viper is so powerfull, but not confortable, but the new construction promeses. ERS4 is a good copy of the Brasilian Redley that desapears some years ago. BodyGlove is the same as WaveGripper, a cheaper swinfin… and Duck Feet I don´t know. The most important think for me is to be confortable in the water, and nobody has the same feet as other one, so I recomended try and try swinfins before buy. Also, I so happy with my DaFin 😉
Am thinking of buying the Body glove models after reading up a little. Also kinda like the Ally too. It seems like the Ally model would hold up better over the years. The Body glove model seems a little flimsy. Am I right in thinking this or do they seem equal in design? Thanks for any more information you could give.
