Gear Comparison: Molchanovs Pro Hyper Bifins vs Molchanovs Competition Bifins 2x

Looking to level up your performance in the water? Let’s compare two popular options: the Molchanovs CB2x and the Pro Hyper bifins. Here are the key points to consider:

1️⃣ Foot Pocket: The immediate difference lies in the foot pocket design. The Hyper bifins have the same foot pockets as the Molchanovs Pro monofins, which provide customization options for blade-foot pocket angle and feels more responsive. In contrast, the CB2x features a lighter, more minimalistic foot pocket design.

2️⃣ Weight: Because of the additional rubber around the foot pocket, the Hyper bifins are noticeably heavier than the CB2x. A standard size 38 weighs vs ~1.2kg for the CB2x.

3️⃣ Buoyancy: Another noteworthy distinction is that the CB2x sinks in water, while the Pro Hyper bifins float. You’re less likely to lose the Hyper bifins to the depths of the ocean 🌊

4️⃣ Fit and Comfort: Both fins come with lined foot pockets for enhanced comfort. The CB2x foot pocket fits slightly looser than the Hyper bifins’ foot pocket of the same size.

Ultimately, the decision between the Molchanovs CB2x and Pro Hyperfins depends on your specific needs and preferences. If your focus is pure performance, the Hyper bifins are a fantastic pick. However, if you desire a balance between performance and leisure, the CB2x, with it’s lightweight design is the way to go.
