    ^ Oh that is perfect! Thank you so much Raina and Raven!! I was *this* close to asking her myself if I could have the Wave swapped out in the basic tail for the Competitor. I am one happy fish!

    Can anyone post an example of her basic tails? I can't tell if any if the photos on this thread are or if they are all performance.

    ^ I know what you mean.
    One thing I've been wanting to see from Raven is a video with a specific showing of the different tails to show so I know which is which. I've also been wanting to see the differences specifically between a competitor, a wave, a foil, & an Oceanika so I know what the flukes look like in the water. :P

    yeah, i would certainly like to see the difference as whether to know if i should save for a basic or a performance tail.

    I think Meshpa is in a few videos wearing a basic silicone tail lined with neoprene. But I'm not sure. I can't quite think of which tail it is.

    ^ I know. Thing is, I can't tell which is Meshpa.

    No, I mean I know which is her in the clips where I can see her face. But in the videos swimming and such I can't tell because the camera is so far away.

    I'm the same size and I've contacted Raven about getting an Abalone style top from her. The hard part is just finding the larger shells and then she can do the top no problem. I'm sure if you contacted her she could whip something up for you! I know she's keeping an eye out for shells for me, She can probably do the same for you!

    LOL you know all this stuff is right on her fb page...?

    Basic Tail:



    It's silicone on neoprene and doesn't come with extra fins.

    This is one too, though she is no longer offering extra fins with the basic model



    You compare that with the performance tails that have a competitor monofin (more expensive + bigger) and is silicone without neoprene, with the option of extra fins and dorsal etc

    Meshpa is wearing the basic tail in this video, the green one with spots

    I only kind of knew which was which...I never noticed the photos being labeled as what they were? I just saw the photos alone and I don't recall every seeing any labels (which on a few I actively seek'ed out). But thank you for the clarification!

    Same here Emma. I guess that's a good thing that we can't tell though, huh?

    I didn't know if her basic tails had raised scales as well or were more imprinted. I wonder if she could make a basic tail with a competitor if I sent her the one I already have.

    Thanks for asking this. The website is not as clear as I would hope to see the difference. Someone might have already answered but thanks for asking!

    Thank you Steph! (you are ALWAYS so wonderful)

    We are working on some comparison photos/videos to post to help show the difference right now. The Basic tail does have molded scales NOT imprinted scales. I didn't think they looked so similar but a lot of people are having a hard time telling the difference. We have also tweaked a few things to help them look a bit more unique.

    Hope that helps!
