      The Bolster Paddles are a game changer in my swimming practice. They provide valuable resistance in the water for both the back stroke and western crawl.

      Better stroke assured!!

      Those paddles are easy to strap on your arms and they do correct the movement of the arm very quickly. The only thing I struggled with is the rubber piece that needs to be inserted in the wide part of the paddle, as it kept breaking when I tried to insert it. The manufacturer should include an extra piece.

      worth the money

      They are a great training tool to help straighten out the wrist. Also purchased the fulcrum paddles. Her coach uses them both for different exercises.

      Great teaching tool

      I have used them and I can feel the difference in my pull. I have also had my master's swimmers use them. Many of them are also benefitting from the wrist part.

      Great teaching tool

      I was skeptical at first but gave in and bought these for my college team. A great mix between a regular paddle and the forearm fulcrum. You can definitely see the difference when the athletes wear these and I am excited to experiment with them more. They HAVE to have their hands in the right position to pull as the device does not let you bend your wrist. Very much like the forearm fulcrum but easier to use and of course the paddle is nice for training as well. The Bolster is very good at teaching the "kayak paddle" or "meathook" freestyle that is so important for 50/100 speed development. I haven't tried them with the athletes on the power tower yet but i think that will work quite well with a lower weight. I don't know if these should ever take the place of regular paddles but I see no reason why these wouldn't be awesome for pulling sets or general aerobic swimming. Not sure you could sprint well with them but again for aerobic swimming it can really help save the technique, especially for the 50/100 types who can't afford to be laying out flat on that hand.
