My new fins

Hi,guys,
After years of exploring how big companies make fins,putting toilet paper between carbon sheets,after seen douzens of broken blades,risked the life of their owners,i tried several times to make my own,100% pure carbon
I can say this time Im satisfied with the formula and I intend to use them for years) The blade weights only 170 grams.Process is vacuum infusion,I think the best so far for long service bending products.

Re: My new fins
