Hi John,


If a lack of balance is your issue and your hips are low in the water, that puts you in a larger cross section or bigger drag profile - like pulling a parachute. The pull buoy will raise those hips reducing the drag profile. Naturally spl should drop and swimming should feel much easier. But that's issue with pull buoys, swimmers become dependent on artificial buoyancy/balance (wetsuits included) which only mask balance issues that need to be addressed.
