I'd be interested in pictures. It sounds like the 3000's solve my one big complaint about the 2000's -- namely that the upstroke is weak compared to the downstroke.
I think that this bias may account for peoples' observations that the 2000 is great for vertical action, mediocre for horizontal and just plain bad on the surface. On surface swimming, the bias causes your legs to drift upward and break the surface and almost no amount of compensating can drive them down where they ought to be, so your feet come free of the surface on the upstroke and slap uselessly on the downstroke. You have to cop a really bizarre posture to counteract this.

I do notice that I have a small tendency to break the surface - something which I always try to avoid, Could it be that the neoprene from my wetsuit brings up my legs more - closer to the surface - than when diving without a wetsuit?
