Starting with the good news: this snorkel feels amazing in the water, like it's a part of my face. The other snorkels had a distinct wobble, especially at faster paces, and I could feel the turbulence and drag coming off of them. The MP Focus, with its swept-back design and wedge cross-section, just slices through the water and feels amazingly natural. Their claim about the "unique, low-profile, hydrodynamic tube" isn't hype, in fact they're understating it. Also the claim that it resists rotation is 100% true.
Other reviewers have said it restricts breathing slightly, but I didn't detect that it all.
The forehead rest and strap are very well designed as well, with pushbutton locks for the strap, and a really clever tension system to keep the forehead rest in place while also allowing it to be adjusted. The Tyr and Finis both had adjustable forehead rests that moved around too much, and the straps one both were sub-par.
And now the problem: the MP's mouthpiece. The best way to describe it is "invasive." It extends well into your mouth, with a segment that rests on the roof of your mouth, and these C-shaped brackets extending from the bite wings that seem designed to clasp your tongue. I found this weird and uncomfortable, and unless I was concentrating on keeping my tongue perfectly still (which is harder than it sounds), I was getting irritation in my mouth from this thing. The mouthpiece rubber seemed somewhat harder than the Tyr; maybe it's urethane instead of silicone. The in-mouth parts also had sharply defined edges, which (even though they're rubber) made the irritation that much worse. (Keep in mind that everyone is shaped differently, maybe I have a too-small mouth.) Add to that a very plasticky smell and taste awhile breathing through it that the Tyr didn't have, though I assume that would go away in a few days.
Another problem: like the Finis, it was hard to blow water out of the snorkel. One full breath didn't seem to do the job. All swimming snorkels leak, no exceptions; what sets them apart is how east it is to clear the water. With the Tyr it was very easy. With this one, not so much. On a positive note, this one didn't leak any more than any other snorkel I've used, maybe less in fact, and because the mouthpiece assembly has a large volume, when water did get in, it sort of stayed out of the way, unlike other snorkels. So having to clear the water was less of an issue.
Ultimately, what I've done is put the forehead piece and strap from the MP Focus on my old Tyr snorkel (it fits great), resulting in a new and improved Tyr. For that reason I'm glad I bought it, even if I'm not using the main part of the snorkel. Maybe someday Aquasphere will fix the mouthpiece on this thing, and then they'll have the ultimate swim snorkel.
I lost finis and decided to give this snorkel a try, not disappointed, enjoying it very much.

I've used many snorkels before. As a child and as an adult I have had many experiences with snorkels.Read more
