The TYR Tracer Light Jammer Men's Swimsuit was designed with a water-repellant coating to reduce drag and increase performance. Extremely durable and lightweight. Four way lock seams improve blood circulation as the muscle compression reduces muscle fatigue and strain.
This suit i was weary of because i saw HD photos of this suit online and the lines going all throughout the suit made it sort of sketchy for me. One major problem i though i was going to have was the lines. I thought it was going to slow me down a lot, but actually having the suit in hand the lines were very low profile. I had a winter age group meet a few months ago and WOW i dropped 1.7 seconds on my 100 free, 1.2 seconds on my 200 back and i shaved a .68 on my 50 free. This suit is great! I recommend this suit to people with medium experience. For people with MAJOR experience can try on the Carbon Pro by Arena or the LZR by Speedo. For people with minor experience, i recommend the AquaBlade also by Speedo or the TYR Fusion 2. I hope my review helped many of you! Keep Calm, and Swim On
Bought my second TYR Tracer Light recently in preparation for an international masters competition. When I went to put it on for the first time, as I pulled the drawstrings together - the fabric ripped for 2 inches along the edge of the hem. This left a 2 inch gaping hole across the front where the fabric was no longer being held in by the drawstring. Completely unusable in a competition! TYR customer service (both live chat & email) dutifully replied that they were unable to help me other than to say the item was under warranty and that if I sent them a picture & proof of purchase they would process a warranty claim. Not very satisfying advice, given that I was several thousand miles away and needed a replacement suit in a few days. Hence, I was left having to compete using my backup suit ( a 1 year old suit) which completely defeated the point of purchasing the new one.
buy all the tooling for swimming this brand and the truth here in vanezuela is very difficult to almost impossible, I used the speedo and truth as to finish the seams is impressive and the way the material remains in the body are I recommend this unique swimsuit.
This suit must have been sitting on a dusty shelf for a long time. The suit & box were very dirty. Expect new/ better condition for an expensive tech suit.
I bought this suit for use as a low level meet suit (dual meets, etc).
My son loves the fit better than speedo and his times improved during the competition.TYR is our new fave.
Using this suit for prelims. Tore in seam by crotch second time it was put on. It costs too much for that
