Strokes for me have become a choice of gears rather than efficiency since I can pb+2 seconds my 50m with all stroke rate combos from 1.2-0.8, just as on my bike I can do a 1km sprint in any of my top 4 gears with decreasing cadence?

To really measure efficiency it would be fun to get a fixed power (low) tow line and take times for a 50m glide, that would give a great reading on the efficiency of a swimmers body position?
