PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Tech Toc is the only device that allows swimmers to gauge the position of their hips with relation to their hand and body position.

Features

  • Consists of a ball bearing within a plastic capsule that contains acoustical amplifiers at each end.
  • Allows swimmers to hear, as well as feel the rhythm and pace of their stroke pattern.
  • As the ball hits the acoustical amplifier, it provides instantaneous feedback to the swimmer.
  • The coach can see a visual reference and hear an audible noise to help monitor hip rotation corresponding to the hand and body position.

Benefits

  • Rotation is one of the most commonly used descriptors while coaching freestyle and backstroke.
  • The timing of the rotation is absolutely critical in achieving maximum enlistment of core strength, which translates to more power and more distance per stroke.

Improve Hip Movements with Audible Feedback

  • Using the hips and core muscles is a key element to swimming faster and more efficiently.

Hear and Feel Hip Movements

  • Ball bearing within the capsule creates an audible sound when tipped from side to side.

Improves Timing

  • Avoid swimming flat and learn to swim with strong hip rotation and undulation.

Swim Symmetrically

  • Hear and feel the stroke rhythm and roll evenly from side to side.

Establish Rhythm

  • Provides swimmers instant feedback on stroke timing.

Delay Setting

  • Great for beginning swimmers; delaying the ball bearing forces exaggerated movements.

Horizontal Position to back

  • Compatible for freestyle and backstroke; communicates hip rotation timing.

Parallel Position to back

  • Compatible for breaststroke and butterfly; acts as a fulcrum signaling a strong hip undulation.

Adjustable Belt

  • Nylon belts fits all sizes and can be worn on the hips or the waist.

    When i first saw this in a video, I was pretty convinced I needed one.

    But after getting one, I realize my roll is pretty darn good.

    It''s helpful to get the confirmation on the roll and to tune it up (along with the timing of your stroke). But I wished I could have borrowed it a couple of times and be done.

    I''m going to loan it to some of my swimming buddies. It''s  a helpful tool. If you are a flat swimmer or don''t really know if your hands are exiting as they should be, it''s a great tool.  

    Too bad it''s not a common item for pools to just loan out or even rent for a couple of bucks.

    Should not be used in public swimming environment because the noise is irritating to other swimmers.

    I like it and am glad I have it, and it does exactly what it claims. Bear in mind that it will create extra drag, so don't expect to keep up with fast swimmers while using it.

    Bear in mind that while you'll get an audible "click" when you roll, you'll still need close supervision by your coach to know if when you're rolling correctly, so this tool needs to be used in conjunction with someone watching you, at least initially.

    A good aid in learning how far to rotate the hips. Easy to use. Goes on as easy as a belt. I had a little trouble hearing the ball bearings hit, but I am a little hard of hearing.

    Instructional video by Finis on the web is a good place to look at how to use this product. Note that the two sides of the tube with the ball bearing are one and the same tube and to move from Delay OFF to ON and vice versa, one has to hold the base with one hand and the tube with the other hand and twist. It is a good product to use to get the right amount of hip roatation. The OFF and ON settings are useful, the OFF for swimmers with little or no hip rotation and the ON for those who are doing it reasonably well. Lucky for me, I was already doing it right and the clicks came at every stroke with the delay set to ON. I tried it both at the hip and at the waist and both worked well for freestyle. I am yet to try for backstroke and breaststroke.  When I first took it out of the packaging, I found the noise too loud and thought it may annoy other pool users. When I used it at the pool, other users hardly noticed it. The level of sound was just right for me to get feedback. The belt is solid. I may update this review after I have used it a lot more. At this stage, I highly recommend it - I see so many people swimming ''flat'' with little or no hip rotation and they will certainly benefit by using this product.

    I like it! Is very easy to get use to it. I recommend it for the new swimmers and for those who want to better their performance. If you try-it and think that you didn''t need it, at least you can confirm that you are doing things right. ;)

    sometimes 1 tool is more than 1000 words.this swimming metronome is one of those gears.sometimes however or how many times you try tocorrect the athletes''  wrong habits, they may grasp the point. body rotation and balance is very important for a swimmer and by using this tool, the swimmer notices the wrong move simultaneously. i think, intermediates shoul use it to improve their skills.
