1 for zoggs, speedo and aqua sphere 🙂Posted 6 years ago
yea i tried a few pairs in the shop but tbh they all kinda seem to be ok, i guess its only when you get in the pool its when you find they arnt quite as good as you thought in the shop
actually wouldnt mind trying the aquasphere ones as they look like they have bigger lens? not seen in the shop thoughcpSubscriber
as all above, fit is important, see if you can get to a shop that stocks a few pairs.
I got lucky first time round with speedo futura ice biofuse or something, in that they fit OK but the seal doesn’t last long and they fog badly after a few uses. They are also big…
I’ve gone through a few since and am now on speedo aquasocket which are great for me, primarily as I have a big nose and they come with a wide range of nose bridge piecees. The lenses are nice, and I like the fact they fit close to the face so don’t feel like they’re trying to fall off my face as I push off in the pool.Posted 6 years agotonydMember
I have some AquaSphere Eagles for open water swimming – they have a slight wrap around which helps peripheral vision and watching out for flying elbows in group starts. They’re getting old so tend to fog up a bit now but a good bit of spit or anti-fog gunk sorts that out. You can also change the lenses so if it’s a particularly bright day you can put darker lenses in, although I’ve never bothered.
For the pool I use whatever I happen to have, just not the Eagles or anything meant for open water swimming as it looks a bit silly. Currently using a pair that I got free with a wetsuit some years ago.Posted 6 years agoRo5eyMember
May I hi-jack a swimming thread please.
I’m new/rediscovered swmimng…. How many breaths do you take per 25m when cruising front crawling?
I’m breathing maybe 8 times a lenght when breathing every two stokes
I know most people breath every 2/3/4 stokes but I’ve got a pretty long stoke and as much as I’d love to breath every 3/4 (feel much smoother through the water) I run out of breath and get knackered.
Any ideas or should I be happy sticking to 2 strokes per breathPosted 6 years agocpSubscriber
just keep working at holding your breath! You can do some good drills with holding your breath for 3/4/5 stroeks at a time. You’ll probably only manage a length, even only going from 2-3 srokes per breath.
I made the change about 18 months ago – it was painful, took a couple of months to get anywhere near comfortable, but it’s worth it.Posted 6 years agosteverSubscriber
rosey – Are you really really running out of breath or does it just feel like it? Relaxing into it is half the battle. I’m a breath-every-3, alternate-sides, person, which works for me. Am I reading that right – 8 breaths and 16 arm strokes? Every 2 sounds ok with that sort of stroke length. Not an expert tho, unless you count son of swim teacher 🙂Posted 6 years ago
i thought i’d post back and say that i bought some speedo futura biofuse, so far so good, i’m not sure they are perfect but good enough and not expensive.Posted 6 years ago
the misses bought some lady aquasphere kaimans, they look and she looks way cooler than me in goggles! but she did say they misted up a couple times
