    Hi,
    I would like to buy some Deep6 fins.

    However I am not sure of the size and since I’ll pay a large amount in shipping I would like to get it right the first time.

    I use a 5mm wetsuit dive boot that is men size 43-44 EU size, UK 9

    I think according to Deep6 website I should go for a L but I currently use Jet Fins XL. I want to buy the Deep6 because the Jet fins are too negative for my wetsuit.

    Does anyone have any advice for sizing ?

    That’s what I use:
    Typhoon 5mm Surfmaster Dive Boot

    scubapro jet fin foot pockets only come in rubbish shape and smaller than most sizes
    thrust upon the unwary for almost sixty years

    The cerich large is 240mm deep at the bottom, 180mm deep at the top
    85mm high ish and 105mm ish wide


    The website couldn't be more clear ish

    so put your bootee on and measure it

    Yea I have done this already and I think the L should be snugging fit .ie. the width is exactly the width of my boots

    It’s just that when you pay $85 of shipping you want to get it right the first time

    If you come to our pool this week you can try my large Apeks RK3 fins. They are lighter than your jet fins and are about £95 in the shops. Depending on what got taken on a club trip there’s might be a medium (but HD) there too, although I expect the large is what you want.

    Thanks for the offer.

    I really want to try the Eddy fins but I guess if somehow that does lot work out I’ll definitely get the RK3s.

    I remember you offered me to try them and I really liked them: I had forgotten to bring my STA last time I tried your RK3s so I couldn’t test for trim, but I remembered that they felt really comfortable and definitely less negative.
