I don't think you necessarily strive for 'low slipfactor' (maybe some can intuitively), but it is the big payoff or the big end goal, when you get all those other pesky details under control.
yeah, but that means that slipfactor is an indication of general swim efficincy, especially if you can achive low slipfactor with a small paddle.(non optimal angled arms/small arms)
