Booties for 4 way competition

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I currently have a bev suit with regular booties which I got when I was not sure what I will get into after AFF.

I am really into 4 way competition now and I am getting the tony suit pitt special. I am confused about the XL and the Mega XL booties. I am getting the ballistic booties.
I've heard a lot of people say that the mega XL booties will slow me down ( I am fairly lean, 6ft 160 lbs ) , so I should get the XL booties instead.
A lot of people have also told me to get the mega xl booties and learn to fly them from the get go , and apparently the mega XL offers a very significant advantage over the XL.

Please let me know what you guys think, any help would be appreciated


Thanks

Absolutely get the Mega XL. The people who say they offer a significant advantage are right.

I think the difference in drag and thus fall speed is not important - how your booties affect your fall rate is very much a matter of technique; you will quickly adjust. (Also, the drag is just not that different in most positions IMO.)

I got them this season just past, and they are at the same time the most powerful and the most precise of any suit I have ever had. This is an easy decision!
