    I took your advice and spent most of my time at DEMA arranging testing with prominent divers. It is a long list and I have to make a bunch of fins for them so it will be a bit before the results start rolling in. There are 3 pair of fins out right now with a State underwater archaeologist, a PFI senior freediving instructor, and an
    AFSOC Navy Master Diver. Stay tuned for results.
