C4 MB002 the absolute winner
The C4 MB002, taking the name from their creator and founder of C4 Carbon, Marco Bonfanti, are the absolute winners. The performance of ALL the finalists are amazing, but indeed the 9 athletes of the Apneapassion International Team, that includes both spearfishermen and freedivers/apnea indoor champions, have definitely voted the C4 MB002 as the preferred ones.
The strengths of the C4 MB002
Already presented as a real revolution on the manufacturing side, with the advanced Hydroforming system, the C4 MB002 are really amazing. They actually put together all that is needed on carbon fiber fins: absolute performance, extremely reduced requested effort and great lightness feeling on the legs, benchmark comfort and, additionally, an extremely competitive price, around 359 euros. This is for the complete fins with C4 250 foot-pocket, the lightest on the market and extremely improved compared to the passed models of foot-pockets by C4. Excellent for both surface swimming and medium to deep dives, the C4 MB002 fins are a net step forward in the sector of freediving ans spearfishing carbon fiber blade fins. Astonishing!!!
Once more, being among the finalists of the Best Choice by Apneapassion prize means the product is really at the very top level of the market. If the final winners of the Best Choise 2023 title are the C4 MB002, the other two models of fins among the finalists have also really impressed the international Apneapassion Team.
The Cressi Gara Turbo Carbon Camo are really unexpected, because for the first time a large company not specifically focused in producing carbon fiber blade fins and products, has presented itself on the market with extremely high performing fins, among the best overall. The Cressi Gara Turbo Carbon Camo are excellent all round fins for any use, from surface transfers to deep diving. The foot-pocket is slightly heavy, but this is definitely compensated by its extreme comfort and the fact that it surely adapts more than any other foot-pocket to all kinds of feet thanks to the patented Self Adjusting System. T
he C4 S-990 are a piece of art as far as the technology behind them concerns, and the lightness of the entire fin, which can also be felt in the water during finning, is a real record. The only limit is that the cost, even though totally justified, is above the other two contenders, which means the C4 S-990 are not for all. In this case, we have decided to prize the C4 MB002 as they put together amazing quality and performance at a very competitive price in the carbon fiber blade fins category.
