Ordered a FS PRO JAMMER because mine is about to fall apart

back in the swim center
It was closed since mid july, one noticable difference is the showers aren't as good
water pressure is way down and we can't control temp

    Hi Leslie,
    thief, hope it helps you swim faster faster
    it was pretty tough, you don't have to dive

    hey GDavis,
    keep after it, [ame="http://www.usms.org/forums/showpost.php?p=191987&postcount=1269"]swim faster faster[/ame] works

    Rtodd,
    4 strokes fast
    means take 4 fast strokes then swim easy to the wall
