which mask would be preferred for freediving around 40-80':

sporasub samurai, cressi minima, or aqualung sphera?

I currently look to buy at samurai, but perhaps the others are better. Please help!
Kirehe, I would reccomend the Samurai: it has more available vision than the Minima, but still has very low volume. The Sphera distorts the view too much for my liking, and the plastic lens will scratch. The Samurai is actually a little smaller than some of the other look-alikes, like my OMER Abyss, which has taller lenses and a little more volume.

It depends if you're just doing the diving for numbers thing or spearfishing, which we all know is the true and pure sport to do...;) Check out the AQA masks at Hana Appii, www.spearfishing Hawaii.

Missed a fun time last weekend Erik!

I read the posts amigo; I wish I could have joined you guys. I did however have an interesting weekend....I graduated from college, got my diploma, plus Neeka flew 8000 miles unannounced to surprise me at my Mum's house! So I was kept busy this weekend, despite the absence of 10" abs, etc (keep it clean, buddy, no diving jokes either ;))
We shall meet some day dudes.
