This is an excellent addition to the Tyr Tracer Light. It is also a superb utility for secret gridges. If you are competing using an alias, this is a must have.

I have a vague memory that Mark Spitz told people that his mustache helped with his hydrodynamics. He was just messin' with them, but I think they kind of believed him.

Gotta say my favorite swimming April Fool's joke remains the 'Laure Manaudou is going to swim for Auburn University' rumor even before she rather ironically started to train in Alabama and showed up at a few USS meets in an Auburn cap.

I feel like this is a plausibly deniable jab at Speedo's mega-expensive cap-and-goggle "system."

Clearly the advantage male swimmers have been looking for to overcome the the female larger tech suit surface area, as I doubt many females will want to use it (except maybe the E. Germans), but who knows what FINA will allow. It did seem to stay on during the starts, most of the time, but i didn't notice any "propeller" action.

I thought this thread was going to be about Jim Clemmons.

Definitely and richly deserved.

"The FastStache creates a perfect synergy with the swimmers cap, goggles and technical suit. TYR product developer Dr. Ivan Mustacio explains, "The system is an engineering marvel!"

Hmmm, sorry, That Guy; nothing can fool us from spotting that big, round, faceless head in the crowd! :bighug:

When will it be released to the general public? It looks like something no serious swimmer,male or female,will want to miss.
