Default Spears at 4:00

I got one doubt; Why it's supossed to be better to spears the hands at "4:00" Than straight forward ??? Doesn't it create drag ? whilst sending it forward doesn't ???

Yes, but in swimming, everything's a matter of trade-offs. The thrusting the spearing hand at a deeper angle helps with balance. Also, I find it easier to pull with a vertical forearm if I get to start the pull with my foreaarm in a more vertical position. I'm not saying 4:00 is right for you, me or everyone, just that there are trade-offs. You have to see what works for you.
