Forearm Paddles?

Post by cottmiler on Wed Aug 16, 2017 10:58 am

I have,nt ever tried using forearm paddles. Has anyone here done so?

What about Finis Forearm Fulcrum paddles?

I imagine that they could be very useful. More so than hand paddles.

I have the Finis Forearm Fulcrum paddles, but they don't feel right; other's have made the same experience. Holger Luening created his own version

Sure, buy it at http://www.rev-paddles.de/ (hopefully they do "international").

Spent quite a bit of time on these. Pretty cool. I think they really help to re-shape your pull vis a vis your body movement & rotation...

Those are excellent!

I must remember to look in a nearby rubbish skip for some double glazing plastic offcuts and make a pair.

Have you tried using just one on it's own?

1/4" HDPE Quadrant plastics, slight negative but ~neutral buoyancy, marine grade 3/16" (?) bungie with cord locks.

No never tried just one. Really strange to swim with, slow/no propulsion at first.

After a few days on them I was back to a reasonable pace and much cleaner pull mechanics overall.

I could feel them changing my stroke as my shoulders/armpits were getting a stretch etc.
