Hi I will be traveling with these fins quite often. So the travel size matters. I was wondering how difficult is to dismantle and assembly the footpockets and the blades?
IVAN P You need a screwdriver to do it. Then it will take about 5 min either to assemble or to disassemble the fins
CHAD G I never dismantled mine, so unfortunately I can't answer that. I have traveled with them and just take them as a carry on and never had an issue with doing so.
RAYMOND J Hi Matej V: The blades can be removed from the foot pocket, but it is a bit difficult, at least at first. I'm sure after you do it a few time, it will be much easier. It might be a good idea to get a few extra clips, as they seem to be a little weak. Ray J
ANDY C I rarely take mine apart, make sure you grease the screws. They come apart easily.
ROY P I have never disassembled mine, but I doubt it would make them much smaller to pack since the blades come all the way back to the foot pocket.
in any case these are great fins, I do a lot of spear fishing and after almost 7 years, I am very happy with them.
BRANKO F It is very easy. Check the type of screw driver that you need and keep it handy.
BJOERN K won't take you longer than 1 min/fin. love these fins.
GENE M R It is not very difficult. You will have to carry a screw driver with you to remove the 2 scres holding the blade in. I have found that the blade clips require a little muscle to get on and off, but seem to hold very well. My suggestion; as i often do when i dont have my big speargun case, is carry them on the plane as my attache! your allways allowed a carry on and a "purse" type bag. I make my fins this bag and stick them inthe overhead compartment. They fit real well!
JOHN P It is a pain to do it every time. I did it once. The next time I carried them on my back pack and on the plane. The last several times I packed them in the suitcase putting the tips down and then bending them. They straightened back out in an hour. They are awesome fins.
ANDY C I love my fins, lots of power. I'd recomend them to any and all. Andy campbell
HENRY K hmmm it's possible
on the 1-10 hassle scale I would say a 6
you need exactly the correct size screwdriver
and you might want to lube the rails lightly with silicone
I just check my free dive gear in the biggest checkable soft duffle
with the fins intact, inside a fin bag, in the duffle, wrapped in the wetsuit
