View Full Version : Finis Tech Toc

I ordered a Finis Tech Toc and received it today. I have a couple of questions for any of you who have used one.

1. If you've used one, do you have any tips on using the Tech Toc? Have you used it for breast or fly, or only for free?

2. This one's a technical question. The device has two settings: "Delay ON" and "Delay OFF". I tried to change the setting from "ON" to "OFF", but I can't get the capsule to rotate. Is it supposed to be that hard to turn, or is there some secret to rotating it?

(If you have no idea what a Tech Toc is, it's a device that is designed to help increase hip rotation. It is worn around the hip. It consists of a ball bearing within a plastic capsule that contains acoustical amplifiers at each end. As the ball rolls from one end of the capsule to the other, it makes a noise. If the swimmer is rotating correctly, he will hear the ball every time he rotates.)

A friend has one and don't know if anyone else has had the same experience as him.
He was using it for the first time in a public sesion. The pool was quiet and there was a lady swimming laps as well.
He was using it for some time and when he stopped the lady says that the pool is being closed because there is a ticking sound coming from the water.
He says that's me thats is making the noise.
With a look of disbelief she says well you had better tell the pool staff as they have just called the engineers out as they think there is something broken.

That is hilarious! I can see where you wouldn't want to have very many swimmers in the same pool using them at the same time. All that clicking would get confusing!
