THE FANTASY FIN 1 (FF1)
Travel friendly, nimble, quick
The FF1 is a great starting point for those who are a solid swimmers, comfortable in the water, and looking to experience merming. This is the smallest of the family of silicone fins and the most compatible with Mertailor's offering of the more affordable line of spandex Fantasea Skins. You can pick up a fin and compatible spandex skin for around $275. Save $10 by using a discount code.
Tip to Tip measurement of approximately 26”x27” and weighs approximately 7-8 pounds
FANTASEA FIN TOO (FF2)
Super sick design - for those who like to swim in style
Noticeably larger than the FF1 in both size and weight, this fancy fin has a distinctive style that photographs beautifully. A lot heavier to haul around, and a bit more challenging to get into a tail skin, this fin is still relatively neutrally buoyant in the water. It was actually the first fin I ever swam in but I would not recommend it as a starting fin unless you are a strong swimmer. It has tremendous propulsion but requires a bit more effort to move.
Tip to Tip measurement is approximately 30”x32” and it weighs approximately 15-16 lbs.
