Hi hercusg,

I'm all of 5' 8" and don't have a problem. Short or tall, the priority is balance and streamline whether you're a sprinter, mid or long distance swimmer. What/which conventional methods are causing you issues or are not working? Swimming like Janet Evans is great for Janet Evans, but not for the rest of us non Olympians.
