I got a cryptic semi-mass-e-mail-out from Dr. Greg Deets on Sunday...something about new UDT's.
Stoked, I wrote him and asked -- nay begged -- for details, as I continue to be a died-in-the-wool Duckfoot/UDT aficionado in the face of all the subsequent swim fin "advancements" in the past 40 or 50 or 60 years.
Dr. Deets replied, in his inimitable email writing style that can only be described as "nuevo-hostile-to-tradition-cool." (He's kind of the A.A. Milne of San Pedro, if you get my drift.)
"New flexy udts
New rapid whippy ducks
New very clean feeling v-ducks
Ask Peter d'wart how he likes them
So far people like them
Udts much easier to kick
I like them all
All feel great to swim with in pool
Greg Deets, Phd"
How/where to get them remains a mystery, which is kind of how Greg likes it. More details as I unearth them...
