Hey guys pretty mermaid here and welcome to the long-awaited are you ready for this it’s gonna happen the adult sized mermaid Linden wait for it monofin review it’s happening I’m so excited oh my goodness okay guys I’m finally filming my review of this bad boy oh my goodness hmm let me tell you the weight she was a long.
One was I waiting four years actually four years yes yes am I so excited to finally have one of these yes yes I am okay now I put out on Instagram you guys.
For me so I I did a thing on Instagram and I collected all of your responses so let’s grab my phone and let’s answer some questions shall we before I dive right in to my review so question the first.
Evelyn snowman would like to know will the foot pockets rub your ankles will you cramp up very fast how good is the propulsion and by foot pockets I mean the straps okay so let me tell you a couple things about this fantastic fantastic shall.
We monofin in terms of the straps now obviously this is not as tight as I wear it mermaid Kim was wearing this and so she was enjoying it a little bit tighter it actually comes with these.
Amazing amazing little covers there I think it’s the outside its neoprene and oh my gosh you guys it’s like swimming with the clouds strapped to your feet your your heels feel.
So good I would like to honestly whoever at Body Glove or mermaid Linden or whoever was responsible for that decision you win a prize I don’t know what you win but you win something you you really should like truly know I do have a few issues with it because personally for me I have physical limitations so I’m.
Gonna get to that later but in terms of the strap comfort the straps are phenom and I have.
Like it’s a little bit hard to feed them through but it’s also because this is a brand new like fresh off the press kind of situation but look at look how easy they have like a little buckled if they just clip right into can we just love.
And appreciate thank you for making such good such good straps now so far is cramping um the that I did have I did have a good foot cramp in it now again everything I tell you you’re gonna have to.
Take with a grain of salt because I do have I do have circulation problems I live with chronic pain and my feet in my legs I have issues that not all other mermaids are.
Gonna have to deal with so foot cramping is just something that seemingly only the Phineas Luna can actually help me with so it’s neither here nor there but I did find it wasn’t hard for it to stop cramping with this monofin in comparison to say like the Phineas.
Rapid I do find that that one is much harder for my foot to relax and this is a very like natural foot she can kind of see it their foot shape which I’ll talk about more in a second but I didn’t find like when it did cramp it wasn’t as bad as that think it.
Could have been in in other monofins that I’ve tried so that has it has that going for it I’d say now the propulsion is nice I don’t feel like I’m as maneuverable.
I feel like it’s a it’s a stiff solid experience I feel like if I’m going straight no problem if I have to turn it’s a bit.
It’s a bit if but I do feel like this is a really quick monofin I feel zippy in it I really like I really like the performance of this I really like the performance of this monofin so I would say it definitely gives me more propulsion.
Than the Luna or the more Taylor fantasy fin because those are a.
Different material this is like this is of.
Like the more classic monofin monofin experiences I would definitely say this is my favorite of the classic looking with the straps and the thing and the buckles and the.
Doodads and the the plastic blade and that kind of thing I like this one the best I I am very pleased with this product okay now the next question.
Comes from Gregory Carswell are you gonna make a tail for it of course I’m gonna make a tail for it are you guys gonna know what it is yet I know but it’s gonna be I can promise you it’s gonna be it’s gonna be legendary if we can just go there so excited you could probably guess what its gonna be.
Based off of what kind of shapes would work with this but feel free to leave your guesses if you if you have any idea if you already know though if you’re one of my patrons as I mentioned it to.
You don’t don’t give it away yet I would like it to be a bit of a surprise because I’m pretty stoked okay now the nerd made faith what’s the know granted you’ll talk about it but the foot cramp is so I did mention that already I do like it is it is a hard thing right like I I get foot cramps just sitting I get foot cramps just laying on my couch I get foot cramps just.
Existing in life so I can’t always blame the monofin for my you know poopy little footsies but this fin was a good experience it because it is there is so much propulsion for so little effort needed I don’t feel like foot cramps are gonna be a huge issue for a lot of people I feel like if this didn’t fit me as well as it does.
And I’m very fortunate this is actually almost too small for my feet so if this actually was underneath the middle part of my foot I would cramp more but because my heel only sticks out like.
A little bit off the end I feel like that was in my favor that was working in my favor this time so not all of my monofins fit like that so okay so the mermaid seams dress would like to know how.
Is the flexibility compared with the rapid what is the propulsion like I am so excited to get mine I accidentally sent it home oh no instead up to school so I’m waiting for my mom to forward it oh no I hope it got to you in one piece the flexibility in comparison to the rapid uh-oh that’s like a tough one I.
Haven’t been swimming in my rapid in a while um I remember the rapid.
Feeling quite thick and quite heavy the rapid has it’s purpose it is a good fin in certain situations this will be a good fin in certain situations and not others as well it’s really going to depend on what you want to get out of your mermaid experience like.
I always say that’s the key what do you want as a mermaid and kind of.
Pick the monofin that’s gonna fit that sort of nugget I would say I was more comfortable in this one than I was in the rapid but I.
Think that’s more of a fit issue the rapid I wear it with socks is a very comfortable fan is very solid and has a good performance by life this is a little bit sleeker overall I don’t feel like it’s as clunky or as chunky on the sides um these.
Kinds of monofins you’re always gonna have that because of the straps there’s just not really gonna be a way around that.
As opposed to the Luna or the mer tailors monofin for that matter but I do feel.
Like I got such a nice kick out of this fin moving around doing.
Backflips and all that good stuff it felt very solid it was a very it’s very much a sports car it’s just really good it’s just a really smooth straightforward monofin you know what I’m saying.
There isn’t like you’re not gonna.
Get anything weird out of this like it feels really good and solid to swimmin in terms of flexibility it has a really nice motion actually but yeah I do like the the feeling.
Like it looks like it looks nice and it looks like it looks nice that I just say that I just said that I’ve been filming for a while guys can you tell um it has.
A nice look underwater when you move with it it is more flexible and because of its shape it has a more natural look then than the rapid does now you could cut the wrapping to achieve something similar for sure but you wouldn’t have to cut this one okay so the next question comes from Nina.
Monsters 73 how wide are the foot pockets are they comfy are they accompanied with or are they fairly narrow now I have a really narrow foot but let’s grab a ruler shall we thank you Eric for putting my ruler back where it belongs I was wondering if I was gonna find it um let me see how can I do this probably off the back this is a little bit hard to tell but I would say at its widest.
Point you’re probably looking you’re looking at sort of just under four inches it’s kind of hard for me to see because there is actually a portion of.
The space that you don’t have access to because of.
Like the piece and the middle so it’s a little bit hard to tell so take that with a grain of salt I would say it’s around four inches.
At that at that sort of point and then probably closer to three and a half sort of in the arch of your foot it is a snug fit I will say it’s a very snug fit which is something I wanted to talk about I do feel like there is there is some pressure on my toes which I’m not a big fan of unfortunately with this that you don’t get with other other monofins it’s right right here this whole.
Area presses down and you really have to kind of Jam your foot in there to kind of get past that.
Which is the only thing that’s a.
Little bit a little bit unfortunate but I have a feeling like any other monofin that I have I’m gonna get used to that with time it is rubber so I did it’s not like you know it’s gonna stretch over time I guess I’m not sure how that’s gonna what.
Set a way to see how it how it all kind of goes okay so that was it for the questions thank you to.
All of you who responded let’s get into kind of like my review of it now my sort of my thoughts on it this is a very beautiful looking fin it comes in a bunch of different colors I.
Because well it’s got to work with a tail that I’m working on so I had to get.
