    Mask Review: TUSA Splendive IV with prescription lenses

    Everyone has been there. You’re standing in front of a wall of shiny new masks and you can’t fight the urge to plunge your face into each and every mold with the deepest breath you can muster. Suctioning the mask to your face you proceed to mumble to your buddy, “How does it look?” Depending on the fit and the amount of practice you’ve had, the mask either stays put or almost falls to the floor. At this point your buddy either says it looks awful or worse yet “Yeah, it looks good” which really means a whole lot of nothing. And after a few head turns in the mirror you’ve found yourself at the cashiers counter passing over a nice chunk of change to an amused sales clerk.

There are many reasons we find ourselves yearning for a little more oomph underwater, wishing we could hit an accelerator button. Well, that button exists, and one day last year I had a blast pressing it.
