Ha! I'm happy with this weight. Part of the function of these. Still half a stone shy of the originals. [smile]

Just been looking at Plastidip. Looks like it peels pretty easily.

Yeah not a permanent solution but people have been painting whole cars with it and it seems to hold up to jet wash etc! The powers of sand and salt are a whole different ball game though...

I have a can of black here, going to de chrome car with it. If have any left will do a tester.

Second session and no real change so perhaps we've settled.



Tie dye it is then I guess.

I do wonder if the patches are where residual releasing agent from the mold has come away. Perhaps a respray would be more permanent.

I'll mull it over.

So I finally managed to try the Udeets you lent me G. I gave them a good work out to see what's really changed.

Despite the UDT form factor, these aren't bad fins at all. The rubber is spot-on. They still have that familiar lethargy I've come to know from using older model UDTs. However they power-up faster and give amazing propulsion for getting into waves early and further outside. No issues with cramp from the footpocket, in fact these are like wearing comfy trainers. They also have enough power and torque to deal easily with getting caught inside or heading back out through the sets.

My initial excitement washed off after an hour in the water as the length of the fins imposed considerable ankle fatigue. This drastically cut short my session. On the course that this horse runs a shorter fin reigns supreme, so I'd probably send them to theatre for a little surgery. 

Cheers for the loan meht, really cool to try these out [thumb]

Glad you dug em. The extra snap is down to the Batman cut but if you trimmed some down the the snap factor would go up I guess. They'd basically be like Duckfeet but not sh1t. [wink]

Don't forget to sand what you trim. Straight across should do it.
