i finally did it. i bought my first pair of carbons. after all the crazy research through individuals, website reviews, and this forum, i went and bought the omers.

i just got back from the pool and i feel as if i didn't even workout. the kick is totally different, as you're letting the blade do all the work. the oddest thing was that it actually felt like i had sneakers on underwater. :king

i'm very pleased w/ the construction of the blades. they have a hard rubber rails that help protect the blades but also help deter the infamous side slippage phenomena. ;) i'm more than anxious to get them in the open water.

i also noticed that my kicks didn't need to be as wide as w/ conventional longblades. it seemed that short shallow kicks, but with a sort of whip, actually got me flying. and, it seemed i used almost half the effort. hence the feeling of not having worked out. i was actually in the pool for over an hour. so, it looks like i'll be tailoring my workouts in the gym to accomodate my new kicking style.

oh yeah, the dolphin kick worked poorly w/ these fins. that surprised me.

anyhow, just an update on a day in the life of anderson :D
