I hope you report back--I'm intrigued by the idea of finding a focal point that works. As you say, it's virtually impossible to know exactly what you are doing as you swim since you can't see yourself. But if the "scoop" concept leads to effective arm motions, then that's all that matters. As soon as I read your post, I thought that "scoop" might be a very good way to describe the feeling of a more vertical-forearm pull.
