Hello Everyone - I am new here from Vancouver Canada. I am mostly a pool swimmer/diver and I have a pair of Leader Carbons fiber short UWG fins. They are 65cm long x 22xm x 20 deg blade angle with a hard stiffness blade and I am 95kg with pretty good legs. There are the best fins I have ever had but now that I have got accustomed to them I am looking for even more performance. While the fins are good in motion I find them less maneuverable than some other cressi plastive fins I have used. I was considering something like a lifesaving fin but I have been daunted by choosing such a wide width or going extra hard that is available in these fins. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. ????
Stick with what you've got. Stiff fins are overrated.

Do you have an experience with Najade or powerfins? I have been watching some UWG videos where they show the players using them upside down from how they seem to be designed. This would seem counterintuitive from what other fin manufactures say about blade angle.
