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.


  • 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.


  • Senior - Yellow (14"), Junior - Blue (11.5").

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.

    Feels too big

    My swim coach recommended I get these to train for a proper FS stroke. I felt like I was struggling more to keep them on then I was working on improving my stroke. The kid's size is too small and the adult size too large. Maybe Finis should consider adult female and adult male sizes instead of "youth" and "adult". Ohters on my team tried them as well as the coach; the forearm paddles did not have the affect hoped for. I appreciate swimoutlet's easy return policy and will use the credit in the near future.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The paddles work wonders on your stroke! I have been swimming for 5 years and was at a point where I wanted to improve my stroke. I started by working with a swim coach, but I just couldn't get my stroke perfect so I got the paddles so that I could feel how to do the stroke properly. After a lap with these paddles, my stroke is better than ever!

    It takes a bit guetting used to it but it DEFINITELY does not allows you to bend your wrist. I also find that it makes me be more aware of the position of my arms as they go under water and because my wrist is straight I find myself moving faster as I can push more water away.

    Feels too small

    i didn't know what to think of this, and it is a little to small to wear with my wet suit, however, i was surprised how my very next swim after using these for only a couple laps made a huge difference. i have never had formal swim lessons so even this little bit helped.  i'm still slow, but am not excited to keep trying and have hopes for going faster.

    These are very helpful in straightening out the wrist. Just be sure to notice that they come in two different sizes.

    Very useful for getting the filing of the right stroke.

    My daughter was having trouble keeping her wrists straight when swimming freestyle.  These helped.  Now she is working on her catch.
