Default Try fins

I managed a 2 beat kick with my backstroke yesterday. The key was learning to balance and rotate with very little kicking - which is not a helpful statement in and of itself. I learned the balance by using Finis swim fins. The fins allowed me to stay balanced in the water with only do a tiny flutter kick to drive my hip rotation. Once I had the balance and timing down, I tried it without the fins and voila - backstroke with very little leg action.
