Progress with this drill over the last three months has been slow but sure.
The recent discovery of Ratchup (Reverse Catchup Drill) has helped with the quest for maintaining a rigid straight body floating horizontally yet being propelled by minimal slippage hand/arm action under the water. This drill deals with the action from when the body is lying as a flat horizontal plate in the water and the pull/push rotates the body axially through 45 -85 degrees.
Unco commences with the hand entry when the body first rotates axially through the reverse direction of 45- 85 degrees and then the catch pulls the body back through 90 -170 degrees getting the good shoulder dip.
What seems to help is to do Dunco which is two pulls on the right, switchover and then two pulls on the left etc.. The switchover is the Boomer drill 2 which I referred to last year in a thread.
Push off with face breathing to the left and right arm in front. Pull hard and spin the body over so you can breathe to the right. Re-enter the right hand as you roll to breathe to the left and so on.
Since this needs a twist motion it is called Twunco.
After half a lap it's best to swap arms as dizziness starts to set in.
Once your bodyline starts bending its going downhill and the speed drops.Staying straight is important. otherwise the exercise doesnt has much use.
As far as i can see it you better pull more backwards then pulling yourself so much into rotation, but thats easy for me to say. I can only do unco with a 6Bk.
Without a kick getting a constant rotation is difficult indeed.
