    both good fins. I would say go with the ones that fit best.

    I have been rocking techs for a long time, but I'm making the switch over to churchills because they fit a little better.

    The techs are a little shorter, but wider, and I think they have a little more power. May be a little easier to DK with the tech's, since they are shorter.

    The Churchills have always hurt my feet. Bad blisters and sores. I got Redleys a couple years ago and I love them. No blisters, good power, light weight and they float.

    I've not had a pair that I like. Of course, the last time I had a pair was in the late 80's.

    Chuchills in blue and gray cut through my feet. Blue and yellow are better.

    Worn Churchills and BZs.

    An old Churchill pair from the 70s and the new blue/yellow ones. These are my favorite fins. Just make sure you get the right size so that they don't kill your feet. The BZs I didn't have long, they were when I was a kid and my feet were growing fast. They were OK at best.

    I've worn my friends Body Gloves with the neoprene liner and adjustable strap. They are extremely comfortable. However, I feel they lack a lot in power, because of the neoprene the boot part isn't that stiff, so it flexes a lot when you kick. Unlike the Churchill's which is why they have a lot of power.
