    Leslie- if you would stop snorting underwater in response to remembering forums hilarity your noseclip would probably stay on instead of becoming a high velocity projectile...

    Re: Nose Clip

    Fortress, this may sound really basic but make sure you have the noseplug on facing the right way, with the rubberized flares facing away from you and the wire flush against the bridge of your nose. When I first started experimenting with the nose plug it was hurting me and I had trouble keeping it on my nose. I happened to see a synchro demonstration (at the 99 SCY nationals at Santa Clara) and saw the swimmer up close and realized I had been wearing the clip backwards - a real "a-ha" (or maybe "duh") moment for me.
    Also try the different sizes to find the one that works for you. I like the Speedo clips because they are smaller. Also when its not on my nose I wear it on my left ring finger with the wire tucked underneath my wedding ring, I can swim fly or sprint free and not worry about losing it. Works great for meet warmups too.

    Re: Nose Clip

    Right now I am sitting at my desk at work realizing that I forgot to do my flFnase this mornig. My sinuses are draining yet they feal as if there is a gallon of water in them. This can only mean that polyps are enlarged. The only good thing about going to the ENT is that she will deaden my sinus cavities & I will be able to breathewith my mouth closed.

    Re: Nose Clip

    I have recently (as in a few workouts ago) converted to the Nose Clip club. I positively look like a witch but I'm going to stick with it as I can't really do dolphin kicking without it comfortably.

    Welcome to the club. Be aware that they are addictive!

    Hi, Gerdrick. Nose clips aren't so bad to compete with. You get a definite advantage over your competitors off the walls. If you want a stylish nose clip, check out this site http://www.swimoutlet.com/Ear_Nose_Plugs_s/333.htm . Speedo makes some cute ones. Good luck!

    Re: Nose Clip

    I had literally given up swimming (what I call swimming) and really missed it terribly, especially open water on a specific lake (Boerne) near here. Then the miracle, nose clips. Rapture, ecstasy, epiphany. I became complacent and used them always. Two days ago I lost them crossing back from the other shore (freestyle, 800 meters over, then 800 back). I have had sleepless nights of suffocating, days of sinus congestion and burning. I will never, EVER EVER swim without clips, EVER again... as in NEVER EVER!

    Re: Nose Clip

    Started using them about a year ago for backstroke. Don't know if it's a good thing, but I am now 100% dependent on them for all swimming. Don't use them in the shower, yet.

    Sporti are the best for me
