I've always worn Churchills, but they do blister your feet bad. My left one is broken right where the yellow meets the blue and I'm thinking about getting a pair of Vipers... anybody have any feedback on them??? I've also worn BZs but didn't like them too much.
I'm all about tech's..super light, good thrust and short. One downfall is that they DO NOT FLOAT! I've lost 2 pairs before i got teathers. Also pretty comfortable, don't have to worry about blisters so no need for fin socks.
Steelwave Vipers are a good deal man. I have a pair of V-5 models and they are also great fins. I'm all about drop knee now and I feel the techs do the job much better as far as the quick get up. But the Vipers are mad comfortable, soft on the inside with like a pad for the top of your foot so you dont have rubbing on your ankles.
