The best investment you can make...

... to up your spearfishing game.

Get the right fins.

Really. Fins designed for general snorkeling or scuba diving are ill suited for serious free diving or spearfishing at all. Sadly you see a lot of cruisers flail about trying to spearfish with the wrong fins and the operative word in this sentence is... T-R-Y-I-N-G.

Of course, the downside to real free diving fins is that they tend to be expenive starting around $200 and until recently any sub-$200 fins tended to be kinda funky.

Lucky for us that  both Neptonics and Mako (the places I tend to buy my gear from both have some good long fins for a whole lot less...

Neptonics has these Beuchats for around $90...

...and Mako has their Mako house brand for around $70.

Either of which will seriously improve your spearfishing game.
