I like the idea of creating your own through agon. Although I couldn't find sterling, it seems a bit confuddling I'd have to look at it a bit more.
Very Happy
Do you think speedoes get the poser sterotype assosciated with them?

Thanks Cleo I've got pictures but they haven't arrived yet... Laughing

So what the opinion of speedoes, or the more aqua shorts which are more up the leg than jammers?

At the moment I'm stuck with one pair of bland jammers as my pair speedos(jammer) lycra never lasted well in the pull and look awful now.

I think the Aussie bum are a bit err the models are even finding them too small.

speedo aqua shorts are ok but they are a lil short. i would go trunks and drag shorts, you will nottice the difference. especially when u swim in just normal shorts.
if you are a fan of jammers, swimshop.co.uk do endurance jammers which last ages.
i swear by maru pacer, i have 2 pairs and they are still going strong after 8 years of 8 hours a week in the pool.

The agon things are very hard wearing. I bought a pair with the balls on about 3 years ago and they are still going strong. (Prob used them 2-3 sessions a week.)

I emailed them a design for the club trunks and they came sent them back done within 2-3 weeks. I save these for best but they are just as hard wearing.

Dont buy drag shorts. After about 1k they play merry hell with the technique and flow of your stroke.

Is that what you were modelling on Tuesday night?

Never bought anything off of splish but bought some stuff of the US swim shop website. Procedure is just the same, if its a few pairs of speedos you shouldnt be a problem with tax but dont take my word for it, id ask them!

That'll be the redshift effect - your shorts looked redder than they were as you approached the speed of light...
