Too bad no replies. I'm also interested in this topic. It seems hard to improve the stroke count for backstroke. Some people can kick many times within one hand stroke, so their stroke counts can be quite low (and they look so easy...). I guess there's no way to glide a long distance in one stroke as one does in freestyle? If so, perhaps the only key is to kick more times?
