  • 7/15/2017 Robust Pull Buoy

    5 Review Stars By Swimming Joe

    This is a very robust "classic" design pull buoy.  I weigh 185 at 6'1" and it provided PLENTY of lift for my lower body.  Very nice, and the adjustments are firm and not difficult to execute.

  • 12/21/2013 Still the best

    5 Review Stars By Paul O.

    7" is the "normal" size.  Still the best.  I'm a lifelong, accomplished swimmer and I grew up with these.  I also bought the newer foam Speedo buoy, but I regret that purchase.  Just not as good of a buoy.

  • 6/24/2017 Great for repeated flip turns !

    5 Review Stars By Richard H

    My daily swim schedule includes two sets of 10 laps with flip turns and a pull buoy.  These are alternated with hard fin and kick board sets that leave my legs in need of the pull buoy rest. This  routine has been going on for a long time, and now uses the Better Times 7" dual cylinder buoy.  This kind of pull buoy does not become dislodged after repeated turns like the more usual contoured one-piece style supplied by the Y' pool.  Wish I had gotten it years ago !

  • 10/8/2014 Great Pull Buoy

    5 Review Stars By Sheila

    This is the only kind of buoy I will buy. It stays in place and doesn't slip out like the one-piece buoys everyone uses now.  I have pretty thin legs so the other buoys always slip out. This one is nice because it stays in place with little effort.

  • 5/25/2017 Just Adequate

    3 Review Stars By D. Rhodes

    I'm a fan of this style buoy but this just isn't like the last buoy I had which suddenly broke after years of abuse.  It's super slippery and I'm hoping with time the slickness will wear off.  Also the strap isn't the easiest to adjust,

  • 4/18/2014 Bettertimes Pull Bouy Just Right

    5 Review Stars By Coach Turville

    This pull bouy has been around a long time.  I've selected it again in my coaching and still prefer this product for swim training. I use the medium 7" size as it seems to work well for high school swimmers.  There are other sizes, but this size works the best.

  • 4/28/2017 Stays in place

    5 Review Stars By Swimming in VT

    Have tried various pull bouys and found this one stayed in place better than the "bone-shaped" ones.  My legs float a bit when doing flip turns, but it's workable.  Happy to have found a pull-bouy that works for me.

  • 12/2/2008 Flotation Device Floats in A Tight Fit

    3 Review Stars By Jimmy the Eel

    This device is okay, but the straps are not lengthy enough to allow for a comfortable fit between the legs.  At least half more of it's current length is needed to be added to make it a fine fit. An additional ten inches would make it a perfect fit.

  • 4/25/2017 Decent for the price. i got the 8 inch

    4 Review Stars By David

    Decent for the price ........I bought the 8 inch.  My legs sink or rather I have a one two kick while my arms do most of the work......LOL  I heard about this product instead of the one piece.  I tried the one  piece foam and yes would slip out if not held tightly by your legs, and in my case I forget to squeeze hard enough when I swim to keep the one piece of foam from sliding out when swimming, " but that's me."  Its a preference thing I guess ?, so you will have to figure that one out. I'm constantly reviewing things as I go along in life.  You can also find me here.......
