I’ve managed to “cut” the flexible rubber on the fin blade and I’m looking for any suggestions on how to repair it.

The cut is about 4cm long and hasn’t reached the end of the fin

I've got the same ones and was wondering what'd happen if they tore. Maybe try Aquasure?

Edit again: out of curiosity, how old are they, and how'd you manage to cut them?

About 4 years old. Embarrassed to say; a ship's railing spike jumped up and bit me:embarasse
That sucks, but realisically it could happen to anyone. At least it (more or less) wasn't a fault with the fins; I was getting antsy about running home and checking mine for splits!

As I already have some for membrane drysuit repairs, I think I'm going to try some AquaBond glue and tape.

I'll let you know how I get on.
