Thread: Cheap Competitor Monofin?

    Cheap Competitor Monofin?

    What is the cheapest competitor monofin you have found? I found this one
    http://www.freedivinginstructors.com...&category_id=1

    But I was hoping for something cheaper. Where do you get yours? And does a rapid or wave monofin work and look nice too?

    I love my rapid and I got it for about forty or fifty dollars from someone of off mernetwork who was getting a bigger one. I can't help you with the competitor because all the ones I've found are two hundred and up

    Im pretty sure thats about as cheap as it gets for a fiberglass fin. Those things are pricey!!! I'm in the same dilemma as you actually, but I think i'm just gonna go with a wave and use tin snips to get those annoying ridges off it haha. Since i'm getting a fish butts silicone mermaid tail,and thats expensive for a 15 year old (I know its an AMAZING price for a silicone tail but mum and dad don't lolz) I don't really want to spend that extra money!!

    No kidding! That is cool that you are getting a silcone tail. I want one! I am planning ona neoprene one. I am thinking about just spending the money.

    I got a wave and used it by itself for awhile, but when I put it in a tail I just cut the ridges off so its a bit harder to notice under the fabric.
    As far as competitor monofins go (specifically) the cheapest ones I have found are on ebay at around $220.

    What do you mean? I don't get the difference between the different kinds of competitor sized monofins.

    Well I think what she means is.. There are different type of brands of Monofins, alot of manufacturers.
    One of the popular manufacturer is Finis and they have a model type called the "Finis Competitor" And that's the one that's being used often in tails.
    The one you found was a "Model 1" monofin from the manufacturer "Waterway" :3 Which is a cheaper fin to start with than the Competitor from Finis.
