Fulcrum Paddle

The Finis Fulcrum Paddles were designed to help build upper body strength and increase overall stroke speed, without putting unnecessary stress on the shoulder.

Builds Upper Body Strength

The Finis Fulcrum Paddles are one of the best devices you can use in the water to develop and enhance upper body strength. Through resistance, the paddles are able to work your arm, chest, upper back and shoulder muscle groups. But unlike other similar products, the Fulcrum Paddles are shoulder-safe. Their unique wrist cutout design helps reduce stress on the shoulder, all the while still allowing optimal upper body conditioning. In fact, the Fulcrum Paddles can be tacked onto cardio workouts to help boost heart pumping levels. Pair them with the Finis Zoomers Gold Training Fins for the ultimate full body workout. The swim fins feature stiff, short blades, which makes them perfect for training leg muscles.

Promote Proper Form

While the resistance of the hand paddles will help strengthen the upper body, the paddles’ streamline design can also help promote early vertical forearm, or EVF. EVF is essential to competitive swimmers because it helps them better slice through the water and pick up speed on their stroke. The Fulcrum Paddles teach swimmers to enter the water at a steeper angle, and therefore promote EVF. In addition to the entry angle, the Finis swim paddles are also designed to promote a higher and faster catch. This directly results in faster arm turnover rate and an overall increased stroke tempo.

Suitable for All Swimmers

Because the Fulcrum Paddles rely on simple, basic principals to work, they are suitable for swimmers of all levels. Competitive swimmers will enjoy the added strength conditioning, as well as increased stroke speed. And intermediate and even beginner swimmers will love how the paddles help them develop crucial arm strength and assist with stroke entry. Also, because the paddles are shoulder-safe, they can be used by swimmers who are more prone to shoulder stress and injury. Unlike other similar products, these swim paddles are suitable for all four competitive strokes. The Finis Freestyler Paddles, for example, is a great product, but should only be used with the freestyle stroke. The Fulcrums are not only great with the freestyle, but are flexible enough to train the backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly as well.

Additional Specs

The Fulcrum Paddles are available in three sizes, each uniquely designed to fit different sized swimmers. The small (red) is suitable for swimmers who are 120 lbs or less, the medium (yellow) is for swimmers between 120-150 lbs, and the large (white) is designed for swimmers between 140-180 lbs.

The AquaGear Opinion

The AquaGear testers took the Fulcrum Paddles out and got ready to use them. While it took a bit of time to get the rubber tubing into place, once you have it sorted out, you’ll never have to mess with the tubing placement again. Swimmers remarked that the paddles worked the best with the freestyle stroke, but could be used for any other stroke as well. The design is simple, yet powerful, and quickly became well-liked product in the AquaGear pool.

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a versatile hand paddle, one that can develop upper body strength, assist with arm entry positioning, and give an effective cardio workout, then try the Finis Fulcrum Paddles in your next training session. Their sleek and simple design is sure to impress!
