Forearm Fulcrum Review by Coach A

The paddles have helped a lot of my swimmers learn to use their entire forearms to swim. The paddles encourage them to lock their wrists and bend their elbows early. Their catch phase and dps has increased dramatically.

Forearm Fulcrum Review by Coach Beth

The forearm fulcrum is a great tool for teaching an early catch and proper high elbow placement. If the swimmer drops his elbow, the fulcrum will start to fall off. It also correctly teaches how to pull with the whole arm and not just the hand (eliminates a "broken wrist") . Correct recovery is also needed for the fulcrum to stay in place. We have found this useful in backstroke in breastroke also. Creates a much better backstroke catch and enforces a more powerful pull which is connected into the body rotation. In breastroke it makes the swimmer use the whole arm and not just rotating hands during the pull. These fulcrums can be used intermittently (alternate odds with fulcrum, evens without) so the swimmer gradually creates muscle memory without them in place. The material can be improved to the fulcrum does not hurt the swimmers' arms as much.

These paddles really help me teach my swimmers how to keep their wrist and forearm in the right position in order to get Early Vertical Forearm. I use them with many of my new swimmers to get them feeling the beginning and middle of their stroke. Priceless. I would like to add to them a few design extras to get end of stroke!

Forearm Fulcrum Review by Andee B

These paddles are great but there is a gap between the youth and the adult and a lot of my teenagers have a hard time keeping them in place because they have to go too big and they slip around on the forearm. When they fit properly, they do a great job at providing feedback to the swimmer about the correct arm position under the water.

Getting my swimmers to feel an early catch, especially in freestyle, is one of the most important things I do as a coach. This paddle does the best job of getting swimmers to feel what I'm telling them to do of any device I've used.

Early Vertical Forearm Review by KyleJ

Besides body position(low drag), have an early vertical forearm or "setting your catch" is probably the most important skill the needs to be learned in order to swim fast. The Finis Forearm Fulcrums are designed to teach EVF. If you'r wanting to learn to swim, sign up for swim lessons. If you're wanting to swim fast buy the Finis Forearm Fulcrums!

I think it is something that not many people know about or try. I think it is under used. It's sturdy. It's cheap. Has multiple solutions to almost every stroke.

I was not sure how I was going to like using these but I have to say I am really impressed. I have been working on trying to improve my catch for a while. This training aid forces you to do so and even conditions you to use the correct stroke when not using them. I really love these.

Great tool for stroke correction Review by Swim Coach Mom
Quality
Price
Value

I wasn't sure if this would be the right product for my swimmer but verbal cues and reminders weren't working. So far we have trained using the fulcrum on freestyle & breaststroke and will be working the other strokes soon. This tool gives great feedback to the swimmer and while there may be some frustration initially as the fulcrum falls off, once the swimmer masters the feel and position then the swimmer can concentrate on becoming aware of good pull. I've been telling associates about the fulcrum and how it can benefit the swimmer.

It really improves your technique over time but it hurts a bit. It really hurts if you do not know how to swim very well.
