Default anyone used Rangs independent pull buoys?

If so, I'd like to know if they are worth buying over a regular pull buoy.

You're probably asking in the wrong place - TI discourages the use of Pull Buoys. You could try www.swimclub.co.uk perhaps.

Every pool toy has it's application and I think TI discourages long term use but for gaining the feelings these types of things provide, I would expect they may be a useful tool. Shinji suggested to me to use a pull buoy to learn the feelings of better balance when first doing the Supperman Glide. Then work towards SG without the buoy. Learn that feeling and seek it when swimming. Use it as a drill of sorts... not for prolonged swimming.
But what is preventing someone with a sewing machine fashioning some "aids" like Rangs from open cell flooring underlay or packing bubble wrap, light nylon yard good material and some Velcro. Should be a simple evening project.
