I can only guess, but I suppose it's similar to the difference between Slalom Pro (more responsive) ans SR-6b (powerful, hard ride). See description on:

Willy, I've been also emailing for a month and I then got one reply. I am still waiting for the answer for availability since two weeks.
A guy who bought from them told me they can really drive you out of your mind if you are in a hurry. I'll just try and be patient. I just hope there are not too many "good customers" getting ahead of me...

Default deboichet

Cholo, thx for your reply, is a pitty that with their retail prices they know nothing about marcketing. Somebody know if there is any similar fin to replace it?

Willy, if there was a similar fin, I am sure they would be more responsive.
Looking at it positively, if you want excellence, you need patience!

155 € + VAT (depending on where you live) + shipping. Not that crazy price, considering quality, reputation and competition.
I bought 3 fins from them last Summer. Not easy to communicate via e-mail, much faster and easier by phone.
