    Has anyone put a fin fun in a mertailor guppy, which fits the Linden fin? I figure if a Linden fin can be put in an FF tail...I could stick a fin fun in the guppy. Now it may not look right or fill the fluke, but my purpose is to be a twin to my friend. I don't need to buy another monofin so buying the Linden is not going to be an option.

    Okay, take two at uploading images.

    I know this is old, but I happen to have a FinFun amp and a Guppy, so I thought I'd put them together and post an image. It does technically fit, but it doesn't really fill it out properly, and though I haven't tried swimming in it I feel like the extra fabric might cause a little drag. Here's the amp in the guppy:

    I really want to upload a photo with the Linden, but no matter what I do I'm told I've "exceeded my quota" and no amount of resizing or deleting my post and trying again will let me upload it, and I'm not comfortable using imgur.

    You need to host the images on another website, then put the link in. Mernetwork no longer has options to add to your albums anymore.

    I think this is probably a long shot but does a Finish Wave fit any fabric tails?

    Nope. Not in any of the premade tails. I know, I did try when I had a Finis Wave. I even cut it to fit into a Fin Fun but lost so much propulsion, you're better off making your own tail for it, or finding someone that does custom fabric tails.

    Any idea if the mertailor tail slings will fit the fantasea too monofin?

    I just wanted to add one that fits the luna, the mertailor guppy! It looks fantastic in the guppy, I mean it has the silicone flop of the luna and the look of a mertailor tail, that combo is basically the whimsy tails at a fraction of the 500 dollar price tag. (A little bit smaller, too, but if you've ever seen an original fantasea compared to the puna it's really not that far off)

    So, I have the Fantasea Too and the mahina, and I checked to see if the Too was the same as the mahina in the middle of the fluke (where the sling would go) and, it's not the same. ITS SHORTER! so if you can fit the mahina in these slings, you can ABSOLUTELY fit a Fantasea Fin Too!

    Has anyone here used a Fin Fun monofin in a Delfina tail and can post pix? How snug does it fit?

    No. Only the original Fantasea. Other Fantasea fins are too large.

    The answer is, it fits fine but there's still loose, wavy bits on the end. Haven't swam in it yet.

    I just wanted to give a heads-up to anyone else who uses a Luna monofin in the extra small guppy skin that I did have the zipper on my skin break shortly after I started using the Luna in it. I think the monofin was a bit too wide and was putting too much pressure on the zipper, possibly. I'm not sure if this happens with all sizes or if it's just because I have the extra small, but I wanted to put it out there.

    It's too bad, because I really liked them together, but I'm going to have to switch to a FinFun skin with it for now

    The problem is that you could damage tailskin by putting monfins into a tail that’s not designed for.
