The Squeezline is an electronic streamline sensor that makes an audible BEEP when the swimmer presses into a tight streamline. Perfect for young swimmers just learning a proper streamline and making a habit.

"A Streamline is the number one skill for any swimmer to master. Competitive swimmers never stop learning and improving this skill. The goal is always to reduce drag and increase speed. To master this skill one needs consistent feedback and practice. The Squeezline is the perfect tool to get anyone to improve this skill as it will give you immediate feedback if you are doing it correctly."
- Robert Pinter, head coach of Gator Swim Club and "A" finalist in the 200 butterfly at the 1992 Olympics.
We are looking forward to implementing this more, but I am pleasantly surprised at initial feedback.
We're a mid-major DI and we're always looking for ways to improve technique and habits. I expected to see some of our lower-tiered swimmers improve using the Squeezline, yet it was our most elite that really took it to a new level. I noticed a better streamline shape which quickly translated to greater velocity at break-out. It quickly led to further conversations about efficiency. It was pretty darn awesome!
The Squeezline is a great tool to help swimmers self correct. As a coach, it's tough to catch every streamline off of every wall in a group of 20-40 kids. This is almost a "set-it-and-forget-it" type of tool for the coach's toolbox-- the user can wear it for a set or full practice and get immediate feedback, allowing the coach to focus on other parts of the swim. It's easy to rotate from swimmer to swimmer as well. My senior group has expressed interest in getting better underwaters, and I think the Squeezline will be a key component of that.
My biggest complaint is that I'd often have it in my swim bag and it would accidentally get pressed by other things. This ran down the battery earlier than I'd have liked (about a year later, the beeping is pretty faint), but it looks like the new protective cases will solve this issue, so I didn't remove any stars from review. Happy to see the creators are continually innovating!
I like the squeezeline because it is an instant reminder to perform a great streamline. As a senior swimmer it is key to dropping bad habits and keeping good form or even the smallest of time drops won't happen. Squeezeline is great for learners and junior swimmers also. I use it with my lesson group and see improvement with every use.
I also appreciate the recommended drills for use, perfect for amping up your game! Two thumbs up to the creators/inventors of this product!
