    Powerfins Monofin

    Since retiring my Finis Foil, it is 6 yrs old, I have bought a new monofin. It is called the Powerfins Monofin.

    I posted it in the other monofins thread too, but decided a seperate post would be more appropiate.

    Here is a video of my show and tell.

    I have had several swims with the Powerfins for a time right before our current lockdown in Australia.

    It definitely has a lot more propulsion than the Finis Foil, and aesthetically, it looks much prettier too! The one and only thing that is annoying is that, although I did size up to a 40 Euro foot (I am an 8 or 39 in Euro size), the foot pockets are rather tight. I can glide with one kick, its quite a nice feeling.

    You MUST put it on in water or it is a major struggle to wear it when dry!

    Overall, it is a pretty good fin. The color I bought is gold, and it gleams underwater in the sunlight! Have landed on the fin, but there is no scratches unlike other rubber/plastic monofins. It is made of a hard polymer. The fin doesn't have a smell. Finis Foil smells like rubber, this one doesn't smell.

    I am hoping tailmakers will use this fin eventually, as not look awkward when in a fabric tail! When you put the Finis Foil into a fabric skin, and its got that weird V shape in the back? Well the Powerfins does not have this issue as it has the same ridges on the front and back of the monofin.
