You sure you never did any equipment write-ups for SkinDiver?;)

This is good stuff Sven, thanks. My favorite line..."The flex was firm yet pliable enough to let the fiberglass return to its favorite plane of existence. "

Now with all your experience with specialfins (which models?), matrix, and bats why not give a head to head comparison? Like a chart or something with pros/cons. That would be really cool.

Hey Sven
Any chance of getting a text version of the report or one in any of the old WP formats? .php dosn't work and if I get a new computer, I'll lose my standing in the procrastinator's club.
Specialfins have an angle to them and are much easier to surface swim with.

shameless endorsement

Good write up Sven...now how about the shameless endorsement? Which of the three fiberblades (excluding the SF Hybrid) are your personal favorite? C'mon man. I know the companies are following this thread so if need be PM me. I aint got the cash right now but my birthday is this month and a sponsorship would be a great birhtday present (hint,hint to the above mentioned companies). I don't care about brand name, just performance. Thanks.
