  stable blade
  Posted by: angstrom on May-09-13 4:45 PM (EST)

For a normal forward stroke, very little control input is needed. The blade should track through the water with very little need for correction. I try to have both hands relaxed so that both wrists are straight.

Folks who don't keep their top-hand elbow up tend to drop their wrist, which can lead to real problems.
