Seems like you need to work on elbow lead recovery more. You are leading with your forearm, try to focus on your elbow and let the forearm hang loose. Fingertip drag drill is probably the one you want for this.

Yes to Rincewind, paint the water with the knuckles, back of your recovery hand, with forearm relaxed, paint in a straight line. Focus on just one arm at a time film and check it out. Film from the front and go for that triangle that Sun Yang displays. Remember, everyone has different shoulder flexibility.

Also, try keeping your wrist submerged in the water and swing your elbow out WIDE from your body, feel the stretch in your lats, keep forearm relaxed, limp like a ragdoll and drop your recovery arm into the water. Hope this helps, it's all classic TI advice.

Balance looks good:-)

Rincewind and rcrawf... thanks :) I'll definitely try out the TI triangle, one arm at a time.

And che9194, you nailed it alright :)
