Hello! I just wanted some opinions before I order from Leaderfins.

I'm currently looking at the 100% carbon blue wave, and saw they offer extra soft fins as well as soft fins for blade stiffness. Their website says to order the extra soft for up to ~55kg and soft for up to ~70kg. I'm pretty petite at 45-50kg, which would put me in the range for the extra soft, but I've also been seeing a lot of reviews online that leaderfins are much softer than other companies anyway. I used to be a competitive swimmer, and I'm planning to use these fins for scuba diving in current as well as freediving, so I was wondering if the extra soft would be too soft. I couldn't really find any reviews online of the extra soft fins, so I wanted to put this out there in case anyone has an idea or an opinion!
