alchemy V3 offer the ultimate carbon layer positioning inside each blade. Fifteen (15) layers of pure 100% carbon fiber positioned in the best possible way to offer the most efficient bending profile, yet the ultimate feedback nerve and speed. Having the first ever V shaped reinforcement layer that goes beyond the blade's angle we make sure power and feedback come straight from the beginning of each kick.
alchemy V3 blades offer a new pat. pending design called hardtip. Built in reverse order, we managed to get the blade's tip harder. This all new feature makes the most out of your blade's efficiency as it corrects the total bending profile ensuring zero dead spots during immersion from deep dives. While not taking part in the blade's total stiffness level, comes into action when fins start oscillating continuously during diver's vertical movement, ensuring continuous power transition without dead spots.
Having the first worldwide innovative design of colored silicone water-rails, we decided to offer more! V3 blades come into lots of color variations including metallics and fluorescent options as well! In other words, we offer all it takes for you to be in love with your equipment.
GENERAL FEATURES / IMPROVEMENTS
Our V3 model comes with all past features as standards and it goes even better! We kept the extraordinary mirror finish on the blades' front side and matte finish on the back. There are also five (5) years of written warranty from the day of manufacturing on the carbon part of your V3 blades ensuring the best working way as the day you first ever tried them! Serial number tag is now embedded into the blade's lamination ensuring the authenticity of your genuine alchemy product along with a hologram tamper-proof individually numbered tag on your warranty certificate document.
alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber Blades offer a new revolutionary design with more Carbon Fiber layers for ultimate energy transferring and top performance! alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber Blades are manufactured in compliance with the most demanding and modern standards in constant ambient temperature and humidity. 45 tons of total pressure combined with vacuum assistance (VRTM) and 12 hours post curing in temperatures controlled through PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) with a deviation of less than ± 0,1°C.
BLADE ENDING SHAPE
alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber blades are manufactured ending in a dolphin tail shape (D.Tail). This shape gives the best results based on hydrodynamics studies (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute / T. Wei) and tests made in C.F.D. software (Computational Fluid Dynamics). The dolphin tail shaped ending gives the maximum thrust with the least possible energy consumption.
In each alchemy V3 Carbon Fiber blade, there are specially designed water rails made of 100% silicone in white, blue, red, black, gold, silver or fluorescent colors. The design was made in a three-dimensional (3D) CAD environment and produced in United Kingdom by a modern silicone production facility. Trials and studies in C.F.D. software showed that this water rail detains and drives the water on the blade without losing its shape even in the toughest conditions. The fact that even in the limit bend of the blade, the water rail retains its shape, drives the water from the beginning of the stroke and provides immediate response to the diver's moves. Alchemy water rails offer hydrodynamic design and the absolute superiority of silicone to common rubber on strength, original shape maintenance and strength under extreme conditions.

I never thought a piece of gear would change my dives so drastically, but it did. The alchemy fins even when compared to other carbon fins are just superior, the finish and comfort it is just incredible. I do freediving and spearfishing, and for both it has fit the task. I am 205 lbs and with a medium stiffness I've found the proper balance. Definetely I'll be a costumer for years to come !
Top quality fins with top notch performance and ultra comfortable footpockets.
Really good fins. The best for spearfishing competitions!
Fin has been absolutly great ... compared to just about every fin in the market .
Everything is good ,but I got first one is soft, not really fit me! Next time i will buy medium/soft!
It's my first pair of fins and I adore it! Highly recommended with good quality and light weight. Best partner in your diving trip.
When I got my fins (2017) they were alchemy's top of the line. I have been using them for both pure freediving(cwtb and safety) and spearfishing, sometimes on rough seas and harsh environments and they still perform as top of the line fins! These are definitely worth the investment, durable, reliable, the best fins I ever tried. Although I am curious about the v3-30.
Nice and I love it!
Great product with great after sale benefit.
I love Alchemy very much. Alchemy presents me a new world.
A few years ago, I needed a pair of new blades when I lost my beloved pair of Fiberglass DiverR's to 6000ft of water. I quickly was interested in Alchemy because of their high quality engineering processes in development of these blades. I always try to give my business to a company that does things the right way and stands behind their product. I love the lightweight of these blades and also durability of them when spearfishing. Customer service is also excellent and responded with a youtube video for an issue I had. I was able to fix immediately. This is a great company that produces an exceptional product with engineering processes. I will buy my next pair from them if mine ever break, but I don't think they will.
The carbon is very light and you can swim in the water very comfortably.
Best fins ever!
It's a very good fin, but the price is too high.
I am very satisfied with the good quality of Alchemy.
I purchased the V3s in medium soft 3 years ago. I use them several times a week for both depth training and spearfishing and have put them to the test. Definitely a high quality product that will increase your performance. You will never need to worry about them breaking like many other carbon fiber fins out there.
It's a great product but I want you to put a logo on the back of the blade.
Satisfied with the best. Please make a blade that is more than 10cm longer than now. It will be Alchemy's innovation.
The blades are beautiful. In hindsight, I would have chosen a softer blade. But they are still fast and efficient. The foot pocket I purchased, from the same website is much too large (width) and I wish to change them out. Thank you for your beautiful construction.
I'm extremely pleased with these lightweight, high performance freediving fins! I've traveled halfway across the world with them from Hawaii, to Mexico and to the Bahamas. Made to perfection with only the highest quality of materials I couldn't imagine doing my dives without them.
Alchemy fins are soft. I can kick comfortably with Alchemy fin. Now I feel heavy and uncomfortable when I wear fins from other companies. I'm very satisfied with my Alchemy fin. Alchemy is the best.
These carbon fiber fins are the best ones I've ever owned, and I know a lot of freedivers who can say the same with gusto. They are incredibly light weight and I barely feel them - it's as close to my being finless during Free Immersion. You exert less energy, reach depth goals, and increase bottom time with these. 10/10 would recommend to everyone - from beginner to pro.
I love! It changed my whole spearfishing experience, thank you for great product :)
Because I'm shooting underwater, I hope to experience V330Pro so I can focus more on shooting.
I sprained my ankle really bad early this year. And ever since, my recovered ankle still gives me the stiffness while finning. However with my pair of soft Alchemy fins, I can dive as much as I want. It is light, powerful yet gives the sophistication. My next choice of fin will definitely be an Alchemy fins :)
Best fins ever :)
I like it very much, It also often uses, Thank you for giving me such good products.
It's worth that money i paid. I think the footpockets are not as high quality as the blades.
Although I have a few pairs of carbon fins, the v3s are without doubt my main pair. I use them for teaching, training, fun dives etc, so they are extremely versatile. The blade is extremely light and responsive and they make the return journey on any dive a real pleasure!
I bought the V3 as my 1st set of fins, and they have performed really well for me, for over 5 years now. My Pathos foot pocket is a bit too stiff to use without socks. But all in all I'm very happy with the product.
I absolutely love my V3 soft Alchemy blades. I first tried them when I was going through my Freedive Instructor Training and compared to other blades which students and Instructors were using these were by far everyone's first choice and mine. They are light, durable and every kick feels like you are cutting through butter. I use them for all aspects of Freediving which involve Spearfishing, Teaching, UW-Photo and even at my work which involves swimming with Whale Sharks (they are really fast sometimes!).
Love all Alchemy products but especially these fins! The quality is always so impressive.
Everything from the product construction to the customer service is of the higher quality. The team at Alchemy is so easy to deal with, and their product is also excellent. I have been incredibly happy with the soft and easy feel of my fins, gaining good power output with very minimal effort compared to anything I've tried before!
I hope there are more convenient ways to carry it around.
I have the V3 with the C4 footpockets. I have never had a combination of fin and footpocket with perfect fit for my style of finning before. I can highly recommend Alchemy fins any day of the week, you will not get disappointed.
I love them. Thank you!
I loved how its a shorties but the power of the fin is amazing. And it's very handy when it comes to traveling because its a shorties. I also love how light it is and it doesn't make my ankles hurt.
Feels like flying!
These fins are my favorite fins so far and I tried quite a few. I highly recommend them to every freediver looking to upgrade. They are unbelievably light and perfect for traveling! The fins are made off excellent looking materials - they have high quality silicon rails, a shiny surface and a matte bottom. My fins have a stiffness medium-soft and the blade is very responsive and easy to kick and it feels like I save a lot energy using them compared to other, more stiff, fins. I also took this fins for safaris in rough conditions and they are very resistant, didn't have the feeling the blade could easily break.
