    The FINIS Forearm Fulcrum paddle improves the efficiency of a swimmer's stroke by holding the wrist, elbow, and shoulder at the optimal position while focusing on technique development. The Finis Forearm Fulcrum paddle is designed to complement paddles, by improving the stroke technique across swimmers of all levels, but particularly in unskilled swimmers.

    Features

    • Sizing: Senior (13.5") -ideal for adults and taller teens, Junior (11") -ideal for young swimmers, teens, and petite women.
    • Paddle has two closed sections, one of the sections fits around the forearm, with the swimmer placing their hand in the other closed section.
    • The process of placing their hand through the two sections creates an ideal elbow/wrist angle during the phase of stroke initiation.
    • The act of creating this angle corrects the stroke technique of the user by teaching 'muscle memory'.
    • Please note that each order will come with 2 paddles.
    • Teaches Early Vertical Forearm (EVF) Position: Promotes a proper pull stroke pull that utilizes the entire forearm.
    • Develop EVF Muscle Memory: Locks hands, wrist and forearm into optimal position; does not allow wrist to break.
    • High Elbow Position: Initiates pull by lifting the elbow for a high catch.
    • Improve Stroke Efficiency: Maintain a strong, uninterrupted pull from the beginning to the very end of the stroke.
    • Focus on Stroke Development: Specifically made for stroke refinement and technique work.
    • Figure Eight Design: Made of a durable plastic that fits around the arm, and integrates a soft rubber padding to rest against.
    • All Four Swim Strokes: Promotes EVF with all four competitive strokes.
    • Easy on the Shoulders: Open design allows water to be felt against the forearm and hand, and does not provide resistance.

    4 Review Stars By B-Rad

    This thing isn’t used for long distance, this won’t build your endurance, but it will make you remember to pull water effectively and efficiently.
    The one thing I noticed the most is you can’t cheat your follow through, so in return you’re actually pulling more water per stroke!
    It can be awkward and takes some getting used to. I recommend sliding it as far up your forearm as possible, it will allow you to get more leverage with your fingers on the other end to hold it in place, also use a pull buoy.
    I tend to do this in between long distance pull sets, to remind myself the follow through and keep that muscle memory going.

    Happy Swimming ??

    4 Review Stars By RSA/TX

    I have had 2 rotator cuff surgeries and have struggled with tendinitis and inflammation in my shoulder and elbow due to incorrect swimming techniques (I was a water polo player for 8 years). FF helps me with correct catch and pull, and I have continued to use this product while extending my mileage in the pool. For me, it has benefited my stroke and I no longer deal with the shoulder/elbow pain I once had.

    I learned to swim back in "the day". My hands enter in front of my head and then I made a "key hole" movement under the water. My stroke is jacked to say the least. I've been working on improving it for the last two years. These help but they take some getting used to.

  • 5/21/2014 Really helps muscle memory for correct arm position

    4 Review Stars By Wendy

    Make sure you know the correct way to wear them! I was using them upside down at first-which still keeps the wrist and forearm straight and brings up the elbow but was painful and gave me bruises. Some of the previous comments mention that even the "senior" size is very small so I thought it was a problem with the design and was ready to send them back. Luckily, a fellow swimmer showed me the right way to wear them. They are great! I've used them a few times now for just a couple laps at a time for both freestyle and back stroke and it's helped  to break my bad habits a lot.

    They feel weird when doing freestyle.  Almost like I am doing a fist drill, but when I take them off, I feel like I am pushing a ton of water.  I feel it more on breaststroke and back sroke swims.

    These are a little hard to get used to but they do improve your technique. I use them but I admit I hate to use them but I think they are good for muscle memory.

  • 10/9/2018 Great Equipment

    5 Review Stars By POP

    Product used during practice warm ups and/or casual swimming. It corrected my stroke of my left hand from turning my palm outward instead of leading dowm with my finger tips. It's a great product that helps swimmers to focus more on breathing or rythm rather than hand position.

    5 Review Stars By swimncycle30

    As a coach and personal trainer, I have used these on swimmers who cannot for the life of them raise their elbows. I don't suggest using them for long distances but they are an eye opener for those who have trouble with their elbows. They are cheap and I highly recommend them!
