    The Lunocet can even fit in your purse! I can fit 4 easily into a standard carry-on.

    I can confirm that. You will need two Allen keys to re-assemble it, and attach the cycling shoes. Also, no one makes tails to fit the Lunocet. I made my own. I made them close-ended, and found the only way to get the skin over the Lunocet was to assemble it inside the skin. Open ended with zippers or snaps would be more convenient. Open ended without anything to close the rear would ruin the hydrodynamics. Good hydrodynamics is another reason to get a Lunocet, it is VERY fast.

    While that is interesting, i'm looking for a more affordable monofin that can fit in a standard carry on.

    Anyone ever make cuts to your monofin? Does it affect it's integrity? I've got a leaderfins monofin and I can't do super quick turns and id like to be able to with it- was hoping if cutting it more towards a mermaid fluke shape would help♡ tia!

    You can probably find videos on YouTube of folks who have cut theirs! I cut my competitor, but I only do mer events once or twice a year, so I haven't been able to test it. I also need to make a tailskin!

    Will you stay as you are, or be delivered to the waves?

    Cutting it isn't going to help. It will only weaken the monofin and make it less effective to swim in. That of course makes it easier to swim in in general since you aren't moving as much water with each kick, but maneuverability wise it's not going to make a difference. The width is the issue during turns and such, and unless the the fin has more give you can't solve the issue.

    Does anyone own the fantasea monofins from mertailor? If so, how does it swim, is it really as comfortable as I have heard?

    Hi Mer's Im not sure if im in the right thread for this question but i know im on the right place to find out anything to do with mermaiding and mono fins Im asking for someone in Vietman who wants to know if the FINIS Luna fin size M would fit him, I dont believe it will, but want to make sure I give him correct answer. He is a size 43 mens shoe foot length 26.7cm and Wideth 10.6cm what would this size be in US men's and would the Luna M fit him?

    there is a size chart on the website, which says 36-42 so it may be too small. I have a Mermaid Kat Hydra, which is 39-43 and it fits exactly (43; so I guess there is usually not much room left) so I would recommend to buy at least a fin in his size 43.

    Thank you so much I shall pass this information onto him.
