While every performance advantage must be considered, it is important for coaches to evaluate strategies that require more resources but yield a much greater return. As clearly documented, just one week of a comprehensive program of analysis and instruction had an effect on technique (as measured by the active drag coefficient) that was 3.5 times as great as the effect from wearing a Fastskin.
