    Monofins and compatible tail-skins

Anyone have any idea how to mix the Keiki? Or should I buy a magictail (second place to me) instead?


    Here’s some pics of the keiki fin with the size adult large suntails Bali blush and the finfun blue tang tails and how they look with the fin on top and inside the skins. Last pic is the size comparison between the keiki and nunui monofins by suntails.
    Conclusion- it fits loosely with room to spare
    But the finfun has a better (snugger) fit.

    Thanks! That's really REALLY helpful!

    I ordered the nunui in the meantime but since it's - well - almost perfect fitting, to see I can use the Keiki with more different tails, I will reorder a Keiki with a FinFan Tail <3 - Edit: Someday at least! ;-) We all need different ones from time to time :-)

    Maybe someone can at "Keiki - FinFun-Fitting" to the table above?

    The more I keep looking at the Linden adult monofin, the more I'm leaning towards buying one!

    So... Does it fit an adult sized Sun Tail skin?

    I've got my adult Linden monofin inside a finfun limited edition tail and it fits great, no distortion to the pattern or anything. It was a little bit of a squeeze to get in but it looks fantastic Name:  20190502_095730.jpg

    I just tested the Adult Mermaid Linden in a Suntails tailskin. Fits perfect! Swims well with none of the Linden showing. I'm going to order me a Suntail skin just for it since I'm pretty sure it'll stretch out my current one.

    Oh brilliant. Widget also uses a finfun tail skin for her Luna monofin so I'm gonna get another one

    If you're ordering just a tailskin, it is. Finfun's tailskin at its cheapest is $44.95 USD plus shipping since it's under $50, Suntails is $39.95 USD free shipping. So, it depends on what you're wanting to order, and where from, I suppose. I'm unsure about out of country. *Lives in the US*

    Has anyone used a Finis Rapid? I'm getting a Finfolk tail and I don't know if this fin will fit - I'll suck it up and buy the Shooter if I have to, but I was hoping for something with adjustable straps.

    Does anyone know if a Linden monofin CAN fit in any of the mertailor fabric tails? I know they recommend their own monofins, i'm just curious. Bonus points for an overlay picture. Thanks in advance!

    The mertailor Guppy fabric tails are made to fit the linden monofin. There are multiple skin options to choose from. Go take a look: https://www.themertailor.com/shop-wo...ppy-tails.html

    So the Linden does not fit in their other tails or is not recommended for them? Sorry if this is an ignorant question, I'm still learning a lot about this exciting new hobby.

    Only the mertailor guppy tails are designed for the linden monofin, the others require their own monofin.
