    Husband likes it, but the first time out the black adjustment bracket broke so he has had to tie the plastic in a knot.  Also this snorkel has no reservior below the mouthpiece, so after each lap or so needs to be drained.  Color is great, but I think next time we will go with the next Finis up.

    Finis swimming created a great product with the Glide Swimmer's Snorkel. The "over-the-head" design is much more efficient than its side-snorkel predecessors and the length is perfect for any swimmer. Air can be easily obtained by anyone when swimming freestyle.
    I myself have not swam butterfly or breaststroke with this snorkel yet, so I cannot accurately review how this snorkel performs in those strokes. I have been notified about the use this snorkel has for backstrokers, but I have not yet tried that either. What I can tell you about is the snorkel's usefulness in freestyle. An individual can focus specifically on their hip and shoulder rotation without having to breathe to the side, they can kick while keeping their head down, and they can provide their muscles with oxygen during long sets designed to build muscle. However, even though this snorkel has many uses, it has some drawbacks as well. I only gave this snorkel a 4/5 due to the difficulty found in flip-turning while wearing this piece of equipment. Water fills the snorkel when the swimmer turns, and since their is no "reservoir" at the base of the snorkel like other models have, it is extremely difficult to rid the snorkel of water. It is possible that this snorkel does not have a reservoir to strengthen the swimmer's lungs (as extra power is required to remove the water from the tube), but a reservoir would have been something I would have included.
    Overall, I was very pleased with this product. Although the reservoir ordeal was not appealing to me, this snorkel was a great buy. It is extremely comfortable, very simple, and works fantastic!

    These were really big when I was younger and now it seems they have comeback, I use this with the fulcrum paddles and tempo trainer, when I focus on hand speed and technique, works great, because you feel so fast after you take everything off! For me there is always residual water in the snorkel so its interesting trying to make sure I don't choke! I got the snorkel because I found myself breathing a lot, needed to slow down and start over with building my aerobic capacity, so this is great because I can also work on my technique as well.

    I bought this for my teenage son and he loves it.  He says it's easy to adjust and the mouth piece fits comfortably over his braces.  His younger brother enjoys using this too and says that it really helps him with his form.

    My daughter is an age group swimmer and had the original yellow snorkel. We got this one to replace the old one since the chlorine and sun had turned the rubber sticky. We love the color of this new style and it has a more streamlined design. She has gotten many compliments on it and I couldn't beat the price!

    This was my first swim snorkel purchase so I selected this one because  it was the least expensive of the adult FINIS snorkels.  However, it works great. I am very pleased.

    The snorkel arrived on time as stated. The product is solid and of quality materials for the price. I would caution first-time users to practice mouth breathing by pinching your nose. Or do what the instructions recommend, use a nose clip with the snorkel until you are comfortable with mouth breathing.
    EXCELLENT product!

    Works great for laps for those with neck problems. Much easier then having to poke up to breath. Only issues is the support beam needs to be a bit longer for me between the forehead and snorkel.

    I really like the product.  The only problem is that the part that rest at the forehead will take some time to get use to.  It is not the softest in the world, but I don't know what else you could use.  
        I have used it for two weeks and I have seen such growth in my arms, back and lungs.   Because I would use it while pulling with a pull buoy and I was using muscles in my arms that were not being used before.  Also I kicked without a kick board while using the snorkel has strengthen by back.  Also breathing through the snorkel caused me to work on my lungs.  Because of this product I feel that it will make me a stronger and more productive swimmer.  I really like it!
