    What tail makers aside from fin fun, mertailor, etc are still active

    What cheapo fabric tail makers out there are active aside from Fin Fun, Mertailor, Magictail, and Suntail. Delfina hasn't updated their site since 2017 from what I see and 2tails I'm not sure how active they are either. I want to expand my collection and these are all the ones I can think of in the ~$100 range.​ I am _not_ looking for custom stuff or etsy sellers.

    I dunno. I wish I could give you advice - I'm not to familiar with the tail-swimming stuff. I'm just a bit too self conscious.
    Like reading? Like merpeople? You just might like my book!

    Magictail and Mermaid Kat are still there for example. Or how should I understand that question?

    I'm just curious...Why do you not want to buy a tail off of Etsy?

    probably because a lot of etsy people are amateurs, who may not necessarily know the proper materials to use for a tail or a fin. i'm just guessing though

    The vast majority of them still use the foil/holo tails, which rub off easy. Similar to the tails that Fin Fun first made several years ago. For the price a lot of people ask, it just isn't worth it when I could buy a Fin Fun or something else for the same price.

    I've opened the pages for all the makers listed in the resources here that made fabric and neoprene and hybrid tails and the only ones I've found still active don't actually make those anymore. Mertailor (which I'm thinking is my best option) and FinFolk (ALL of their fabric tails are sold out >.< ) and FinFun appear to be about all thats left

    Yeah the forum can really show its age at times. I don't think anyone necessarily is keeping any of that up to date. I'd be glad to assist with such things if I knew who to contact.
