I just bought the matrix #3's and I'm loving them. But I've been reading so much about mono this and mono that so I finally went over to dive tech and tried a pair. I couldn't remember the model name but it had a picture from the book "freedive" by Terry Mass.

Anyway after the weird fisrt 15 min I found that I could go a lot faster, farther, and easier doing dolphins with my fiber fins. Is this because of the fin's model or is it because I'm not used to it? Does the blade need to be carbon or fiberglass? I saw the Eric Fattah has mentioned several times that stock models are good as any but... :confused:

Living in the Caymans have its advantages and disadvantages. If I decide to get a fancy mono fin I would have to wait months and there's 30% duty.:( Also I'm broke.

Should I keep dolphin it with my bi's?

Thanks all!!
I've just tad a chat with Erik Young and I've decided to wait and buy the waterway competiter mediums.
