PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Fulcrum paddles are designed for easiest-on-the-joints movement through the water while still providing enough resistance for a good workout. Lifetime swimmers can develop shoulder strain over the years and these are intended to reduce that strain as much as possible.

• Color coded by size and weight suggestions
• Experienced swimmers, both male and female, may use larger paddles than the sizes recommended here
• Surcharge for larger sizes
• Please note that each order will come with 2 paddles

Note for serious swimmers: If you only practice with a very large paddle, you will build strength and conditioning for a slow movement, but it will not fully transfer to the faster, unassisted movements of competitive swimming. To gain the most benefit, early in the season, use the largest size you use, but use an intermediate size occasionally so you can get the power developed for the slower movement to transfer to the slightly faster movement of the intermediate  paddle. As you approach the end of the swimming season (or when you have a swim meet coming) use the big paddles less and use the intermediate size more and swim more sets without paddles to further transfer the power to faster movements.

    Feels true to size

    It was a bit hard to get the tubbing in, but once installed the paddles work great.  I have large hands and the Large Size works perfect.

    Feels true to size

    Larger than expected which put much more work in shoulders and lats. Took a full week of use to build up enough stamina to maintain 1 mile daily swim. Design is good - not much turbulence during forward strokes. I like them.

    These were not good for a beginner swimmer.  I recommend smaller paddles with holes.

    Feels true to size

    I'm a triathlete and I'm trying to get a better workout. These paddles are helping me feel my stroke better in the water and I can tell it's building strength in my shoulders. I was concerned that they would get in the way (hit my ear, enter the water weird) but they don't. It takes just a little getting used to, but not long at all.

    I use both products three times a week for pool training.  As advertised, they do not strain the joints but do in-fact, provide a great workout to the muscles. This outlet also has the most competitive prices.

    Feels true to size

    I have been using these paddles for the last 4 years. These are the absolute best paddle design I have found. I have tried many different styles, and nothing else compares to building strength and endurance like these do. I only wish they made a size for 250+. I am 48 years old, am a USMS competitive swimmer and do a typical workout of 10x300's on 4:30, and come in under 3:30 with these paddles. I get such a pump, and build strength, that without these paddles it would be very hard to achieve.

    Fulcrum Hand Paddles are great! Force you to make proper entry & pull in the water. the only problem is the rubber straps are a little small where the wrist attaches. Have notified company to ask for replacement (longer!) straps and have never heard back from them..Aside from this problem, the product is very good & good value..

    the only thing i'd like is another set of rubber tubing - in case the first set breaks. but then again - I'm a nut and I go for things like that

    I'm a recreational swimmer and use the paddles to get a better workout.  A paddle size one  larger than suggested by  the weight chart has been better for my purposes.  I haven't felt any shoulder strain and use the largest paddle size 5 days/week.  I have been extremely satisfied with this product.

    I purchased the Black (XLarge) based on the sizing chart - tho needed to get the XXL. It still works well and provides good benefits.
