Mustang 729 25: This fins are incredible! First time I went diving with them was in Akumal, Mexico, which is near Cancun. They exceeded my expectations! I went freediving, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving in these fins and they performed flawlessly. It did take a bit getting used to the change in kick stroke, but all-in-all was the best investment I have made in diving equipment.
The footpockets are genius. There is a left and right footpocket that laces up, which I wasn't used to, but they were phenomenal. The blades attach right to the footpockets underneath to give you more power and efficiency. I took one kick stroke for every three-four strokes my SCUBA buddies used. Talk about efficiency and power! Lightning fast swimming if you choose, or a very relaxed kick stroke to cruise along effortlessly.
These are truly an amazing set of fins and footpockets. Night and day compared to the Beuchat Mundials I had before. The C4 Mustang 729s out-perform any fin I've tried in every aspect. Easy to use, efficient, powerful, yet not tiring for an out-of-shape diver. These fins took me places I didn't think I could reach, and they took me with easy.
Extremely durable blades. I do mostly shore diving, so I worry about my blades getting beat up. While I was diligent and careful, inevitably they did manage to scrape on a rock or two. Not a single scratch on these. Also, the flexibility is astounding. I felt myself effortlessly gliding through the water without even trying and no one could keep up. I felt very flexible and agile under the surface; these fins gave me a lot of control.
If you want a set of fins that you just can't beat, go for the C4 Mustang 729s! You will never look back! The investment is WELL worth the money and I know these fins will hold out for several years of diving with me. C4 customer service is also top notch! I would never go anywhere else for my diving needs!
