Hi guys!

I'm thinking of buying a mythic tail from finfolk. However, my size is sold out. So I thought I could buy a bigger one and make it smaller.

I really like the idea now, because I would be left a lot of scales ( for maybe a top...yay) and I would also get a better monofin for the same price! How much work is it really? Who has already done it? Would you do it again? Does the job pay off (consider the extra scales and the better monofin)? Help!
I would let a tailor help me taking it in. I'll likley will do all the resewing the scales by myself.

Thanks for your feedback, opinion and help.
