I can't see the different of that to your description. Could you clarify? Lovely description though and what I strive for. I'm finding that giving a little scull at the maximum reach gets me a feel of the water. That's a start. Now it's a question of controlling that durimng th rest of the UW stroke feel so as not to slip.

I rotate my hand to face down as I rotate my body down. Any earlier and I injure my shoulder socket joint. (I would call it an outward rather than inward rotation of the spearing arm.)
