DragonFly Excels Poolside in California

Hi Technomad,

DragonFly_poolsideThe DragonFly is still amazing.  I would love to share two stories with you.  We had our banquet at a communion hall at a local church.  Our parents set us up with a [redacted] amplifier and microphone.  It made our coaches’ voice “tinny”, and the volume was inadequate for the size of the room.  My assistant principal did me the favor of driving to school and grabbing the DragonFly… It made a HUGE difference.  People in the back could hear me clearly and the sound quality was superb.  It saved the evening.

The other story is for our summer school that starts this Monday.  So my game plan for this summer is to have the DragonFly with me and in use for 8 hours a day.  Five hours in the classroom and three hours on the pool deck.  The fact that it is not heavy will make it easier to move back and forth between the classroom and pool daily.  I did a sound check in the new classroom and the quality of sound in the back of the room is tremendous.  Clear, loud, and maintains the bass of my voice.  I will also be using the DragonFly much more frequently as we start water polo practice.

Attached are a few shots from the end of swim season during practice.

Thank you for such a great product.

All the best,
