The first time I saw this fin, I thought - Wow! It has such a simple design. I love it.

I got to play with one of these for 10 days. It is an effortless fin to swim in. It is easy to wear, pain free, and has a wide range of sizes avalable. When I got my X-20, which uses shoes like this, I got my shoes from Amazon.

There are no parts sticking out to get bent like on the original ORCA and X-20.

I thought the wing would need protection from getting scratched up in the pool, so I suggested a part be added to do that.

I always did love that gold anodizing. I would like to see the ORCA 2 with those colors.

It is easy to put on, even in the water.

And it is thankfully very light, so it won't sink you.

Ron has a great pool for training and testing, except for one thing . . .

 . . . no lane lines ;) I had a good bit of skin chewed up by the sides of that pool - a small price to pay for all the fun I had.

The good news is that this fin is very maneuverable.

It will accomodate many different strokes, both high and low amplitude.

We had great weather the whole 10 days I was there. I was expecting extreme heat, but it was very nice, and the strawberry milkshakes were out of this world.

The photographic conditions were great too.

These plastic parts protect the pool from damage by the fin and also help reduce the damage to the wing caused by contact with the pool.

Nothing will ever be 100% effective, but this is a good step in that direction. It is not needed in the ocean though.
