I'm having some success with the drill that I think is now called swing switch. Basically it's like the well-known fingertip drag drill, but you actually leave your hand in the water and concentrate on the elbow (I haven't got the latest DVD, so that's just my interpretation)

I find it very handy for working on various aspects of my stroke, such as the six-beat kick for instance, or 'wrong' side breathing, and it's close enough to full stroke to be almost interchangeable. I find I can swim almost as fast with this drill as with full stroke, sometimes just as fast, which seems counter-intuitive, but I'm obviously doing something better with the drill than with the full stroke.
