The Sting Ray is the result of extensive state-of-the-art design, engineering and in-pool research. The inimitable shape designed with the body's natural contours in mind result in insurmountable advantages.
The use of two materials, a skinned foam body, creates rigity enhancing the body's alignment and provides seamless rhythm of motion, while keeping the body relaxed. This is key for stroke technique, endurance, and oxygen transport. The most streamline swimmers rely on effortless movement.
The principal is Don D. Linton, Swimmer/Inventor. Through the years I have been lucky enough to work with swimmers and other respected individuals alike who have helped me fine-tune and blend a sizeable pool of expertise, ingenuity, integrity and attention to detail in the Sting Ray. I feel the Sting Ray, a cutting edge technology, will enable swimmers who desire to go beyond the average level. The Sting Ray creates that edge and separates itself from the competition by offering technology which is demonstrably different and unique. In addition to being a Swimmer/Inventor; I Worked for Essilor 15 years, currently working for Carl Zeiss Laboratory two years. Other Professional Associations include American Marketing Association, Internal Associations of Business Communicators and Arizona Optometric Associations.
Individuals and professionals who have brought their expertise along with my own are: Dr. Rayma Ditson-Sommer, Ph.D. Neurointegration at the Peak Performance Center in PHX, AZ; Olympians Carla Geurts and Julio Santos, Swimmers/Coaches at The Phoenix Swim Club; Brent Rutemiller Marketing Director Swimming World, Junior Swimmer, Swimming Technique, Swim and Water Polo Scoreboard Magazines/ CEO of Virtual Stores Worldwide; Bryan Morrison, Arizona State University Exercise and Sport Research Institute Biomechanics Lab, and various triatheletes.
