I had the Seac Motus foot pockets lying around for a couple of years since they first came out. I didn't like them so I didn't offer them in the store, and never reviewed them because I didn't think they'd catch on.
I was with my dog at the beach, saw a diver coming out of the water and stopped to chat. Found out he broke both his fin blades, they're the Seac Motus fiberglass fins. He was tired from swimming back without fins and towing the board. He said he was very careful with the fins. Ironically he got the fiberglass fins for beach dives so as not to damage his carbon fins. It prompted me to write the review.
This is the hardware the Seac Motus foot pocket comes with. The typical toe plate, bottom support plate, two screws and two tendon end clips.
The foot pocket feels light weighing 566 grams at size 45-46, that's 100 grams less than the OMER Stingray foot pocket. It's hard to describe, the texture or feel of it doesn't inspire confidence. Being able to fold the bottom in the manner shown below is not something I would expect from a good foot pocket.
The tendon stiffness is between soft and moderate. I look for moderate stiffness tendons so the blade gets support from the foot pocket over one third of it's length. Soft tendons and lack of support, apart from poorly made blades, can cause blade failure exactly in the area where our diver broke his.
I always look forward to new foot pockets. There are so many different shaped feet, it's good to have options a diver can try. I don't feel the Seac Motus foot pockets fill any gaps fit or price wise. As far as performance the soft bottom is something I would stay away from. I'd stick with tried and true foot pockets like OMER Stingray if they fit.
