Bin Fins Site Revamped

Filed under: All, Equipment — jome @ 5:54 am

The Chinese monofin manufacturer BinFins has renewed their website. The site now supports more western languages and has also some freediving specific renewals in their catalog and an improved ordering from.

BinFins monofins offer a good alternative to the other popular monofin types used by freedivers currently. In the finswimming world they have been received well and many world records have been broken with their design. A Chen Bin fin was also used by Guillaume Néry on his 109 m constant weight world record.


  1. I ve been training with this monofin for about one year now.
    The one I am using is simply astonishing.

    I’d say that on the way down I feel like wearing a 10 kg weight belt. ( I dive with no weights )
    On the way up it is like being attached to an ascending ballon.

    I know that Chen Bin has now different models. The one I am using is basically the same you can often see in constant weight competitions. The blade is very stiff and rather short.

    When you order it black the footpockets and the wings are made out of a kind of tire rubber. I wouldn’t say that the fin has not a nice looking but it is definitly an absolute weapon in constant weight.

    About the footpocket, I like it tight. My foot size is 44. Still, I ordered from Chen Bin a 47 and it fits perfectly.

  2. Chen Bin is probably the best monofin for deep freediving I ve tryed so far…

    I have discovered Bin fins in Antibes where finswimming french team is used to train.
    I have been trainig with it in 2006 to prepare my -109m world record attempt and I did it.
    I still use it in constant weight. it’s the most efficient fin when you are attracted by the surface (beginning of the descent) or when you need power to leave the bottom.
    For dynamic apnea, it’s a good fin if you kick fast …

  3. I have a pair of freedive Binfins for a year now.
    After trying and using different brands and kinds of monos,this is the one i like the best.Perfect for pool(long dynamics) and sea,neutral in the water is very stable and seems to use all the power you transfer.The best footpockets,like welding the blade to the feets,also good angle and comfortable(my pool one is a little bigger than the sea one).
