Default Flip turns

Flip turns are not my strong point even in freestyle. In backstroke, you have to have a very consistent stroke length in order to judge the distance since you are doing it blind. I usually do open turns for backstroke -- they are easy to do, just like open turns in freestyle, and they don't take much more time than a flip turn (probably faster than a bad flip turn) and you don't risk disqualification if you are in a race.
