I'm really curious about the diving performance with using some quality diving equipment (long freediving fins + low volume mask + proper suit with balanced weight) and some standart snorkeling equipment (high volume mask + fins like cressi rondine)

Whats your guess?
I started diving with a 7mm scuba wetsuit, back zip, separate hood, 12-16lb weight belt, dacor bandit mask, cressi gamma snorkel, gara 2000 fins. The max depth I could reach in this config was 38.5m.

When I switched to a 3/5mm yamamoto suit, finis chinese blade monofin, same mask, impulse 2 snorkel, 2kg belt, my max increased to 67m without any extra training or changes.
