questions in selecting your mask: 1)
Single lens or 2-lens? & 2)
Adult or kid? (Big or small? My, SB’s, main mermaid is
petite & most comfortable in a Li’l Mo Betta.)
2-lens mask has less volume than a single lens, & it can
take Rx lenses for nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatism, bifocal
or a combo correction. It can be disassembled for cleaning.
masks are preferred by most snorkelers. NOTE: I, Snorkel Bob,
build various styles & sizes that may look similar—just as 2 shoes ½ size
apart look similar. Measure yo head!
brands known for quality have taken advantage of their name recognition
by producing low-end products for discount store sale. You'll
see these brands at your local warehouse outlet, but these products
are not the high-end. They can't sell the high end at these prices.
good brands avoid the warehouse outlets, but fail to meet
the demands of thousands of tourists weekly. That is, their
equipment failed for me, SB, to stay in bidness in Hawaii
without screwing the pooch all afternoon on returns, refunds
brands have responded to new times with new colors and new shapes,
but alas, not with new performance.
years of research and mucho moolah in capital expenditure, I, SB,
am pleased to announce an end to co-dependency on the reef.
