as a small, short female, i am pretty happy with this fin. it is pretty light, not-too-long blade (so easier to handle, especially above water), even though the foot pocket is still too wide but the buckle allow me to secure my feet deep into the pocket, and produce good enough power. i like the buckle a lot as i've found it very easy to tighten up before diving and to unclip after diving. it is more eficient with slow & long kicks than fast & short kicks.

cons: this fin seems pretty useless for froggy kicks and backward kicks.
 
this fin has brought me to safety against horizontal, up, down, and washing machine currents in some occassions without making me hyperventilated or god forbid, panic. good enough for racing along a whale shark, even tho i dont think it will propel you to be a winner :)

I am looking for a flatter, shorter,and not too heavy fins than the ones in the market. Easier for travel. But I like froggy kicks which I can't seem to do with my current pair! Guess i still need time to get used to it but packing my current fins is also a hassle. heh!

Since this Tusa fins is slightly positively bouyant, is that a problem?
I'm also tall so.... hmm....

I think he referring to Jet fins.. which may be too heavy for u?  Try OMS slipstream.. same design.. a little stiffer but very much lighter (too light for me).  Lots of power and control, but tends to collapse on the foot pocket when "over drive" (kick too hard).
So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...
