Stealth fins are an excellent alterative to Churchill fins and have a great variety to choose from.
Ally, Limited Edition, Freedom and Supers fins have also based their design of Churchills with some modifications. But I think theses are the best knock-offs out of the group and they have some great colors for their fins.
Stealth as a company is branching out and creating different product lines like bodyboard bags, bodyboards, and leashes as well as an impressive pro team.
These are the first model they came out with.
It is a great fin but I would recommend the other two models over this one because of the drain system.
The Classic Stealth fin shares a weakness that Churchills have and that is the drain hole. It is in the middle of the fin pocket so your toes can get stuck in that hole (yes this really happens and it can be painful).
The Stealth 2 swimfins is the second installment and it was received very well. The new drainage system is a huge plus and having a straight angled blade is a new twist on an old classic design.
Some of the team riders have their own signature S2 fin including Jake Stone, Joe Clarke, Dave Winchester, Ben Player and Pierre Louis Costes.
This is an excellent fin and I would definitely recommend it.
The Steath S3 fin is their latest installment. I believe this to be their best one yet. It has two drain holes on the bottom of the foot pocket like the S2 but they are bigger, making them better, they seemed a little too small on the S2. Also, they have the classic dolphin-like fin angle, which I think is the best.
The two current models are the Ryan Hardy that comes in blue/gold and the Nick Gornall that comes in black/midnight purple.
This fin is basically a Churchill fin with the drain hole on the bottom of the foot pocket in stead of in the center. This is the only improvement I saw that needed to be changed for Churchill fins so I give this fin two thumbs up!
I would personally buy and rock these fins myself so out of all the fins out there I would choose these if I didnt wear Churchills!
