Probably great for beginners...

Oleksandr Golovatyi "oleksandr", amazon.com
7 December 2011
  • Summary: These would probably help the very beginners to understand an idea of keeping you arms straight. But as soon as need finer tuning for your sweeming techinik they won't help much. I use them time to time and don't feel any significant diffence. From other side I know guy who is just started learning proper freestyle technik and he was excited about how these things helps him understands what he needs to work on better.

adapted training apparel

Lionel, amazon.com
28 October 2011
  • Summary: FINIS Adult Forearm Fulcrum is a good apparel to train swimming.I used it for technical training sessions. Your first feeling could be moderate. I needed time (not too long, don't worry) to get used to train with FINIS Forearm Fulcrum abd obtain the mazximum benefit.I certainly improved my technics. My only concern is that I have difficulty to use it for a too long training session (for the time being, I didn't pass over 800 meters with it).

what do they do?

RichA, amazon.com
7 February 2011
  • Summary: I've been swimming for 20 years but never swam on a high school team. I've been trying to get faster and wanted to try something new that might help. I thought these might be the answer, but in all honesty, I really don't know what they are supposed to do. When I put them on, I actually go slower than I do without them. I swim on a Master's team and have let others on the team try them and they get the same result.

Serves its purpose and is cheap

Snuffles, amazon.com
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I have been using this device for the past year and absolutely love it. I agree with the other reviews that this can be uncomfortable but after extended use and then recently coming across additional guidance on the Finisinc site I have figured out how to position it on my arms. Basically keep adjusting the fit until your wrists lay flat. In my case when I have done this just the tip of my little finger is under the loop.

surprisingly awkward to use

Timothy D. Allison "running physics geek", amazon.com
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I'm an older guy who took up swimming for triathlons. I bought the Forearm Fulcrum knowing that I tend to drop my elbows when I swim. They came with no instructions, other than to watch a video online. I'm not sure they help me much, unless the incredible awkwardness is a sign of how much I need them. I loaned them to one of my swimmer friends, and she also thought the same thing: you feel like you might drown!

good as a training device

Edward Breslin, amazon.com
5 February 2010
  • Summary: i bought the fulcrum to verify proper forearm wrist placement. it worked ok for that purpose. i will use it in the future as a check on arm movement. the device is somewhat uncomfortable, but ok for use for a short period of time, again use as a training device. i have "skinny" forearms,about 101/2 " dia just below the elbow; i was able to use the device ok but would caution the prospective purchaser to check the fit if their forearm is any larger.
