Swimmers,

I've tried quite a few goggles, but haven't found a perfect one yet.  They
always leak at the jump start (or what ta ya call it) or at pushing off the
wall.  I'm wondering what models the competative swimmers waer.  Please
recommand what's good for you.
Tnx a ton.
Happy swimming,

I usually use just an ordinary pair of goggles, but here's a few tricks.
Put the strap near the top of your head.  This increases the pressure on your
eyes a little, but not to the point of excrutiating pain.  I never EVER wear
goggles during a meet, but I usually were them in practice.  So, a goggle type
really doesn't matter, it's the way you wear them that is.  ALso there are
goggles out there that you can buy that can be specially molded just for your
face.  I personally don't want to pay that much for a pair of goggles. But
whatever floats your boat!

Based on a thread that went throuth this newsgroup a few months ago, I picked-
up a pair of Speedo "Sweedish" goggles a few weeks ago.  They have no foam or
*** seal and take a bit of getting used to, but I love them.  I can push
off the wall with my head in any position I want w/o flooding them.  I have
logged about 50 km in the pool with them (3-4 km at a time) and have only had
water in them twice (both my "fault", not the goggles).  Best yet, they
only cost $4.50.

What DO they have to make a seal?

They stick by suction to your face.  The first time I wore a pair, they
hurt, but it was worth it to have goggles that don't leak.  The only
trick is finding the exact sizing for the nosepiece (a piece of string
and a small piece of *** tubing).

They don't have anything.  Your face makes the seal with the goggles.
As with any pair of goggles you have to find goggles that fit the shape
of your face.  I was quite surprised when I first tried them, but they
are no more uncomfortable than any other pair of goggles, unless you get
smacked in the face.  The bottom line is that they work for me.
