I have used a snorkle on and off for drills. They are great adjuncts and if anything will reinforce how important breathing is to good TI. When using one I can do a 25 yd pool in a 15-16 SPL while concentrating on streamlining. My time is about 26 secs. Take the snorkle away and things falls to 18-20 with a 30-32 sec time. Great though for helping feel what is supposed to be. Just don't forget it is a tool. Also if you get one get a center mount snorkle. I believe Finis has them and they are much better for drills and can even help with staying streamlined if you focus. Good luck and don't forget to practice you rotation drills
