Why should your squad get the FINIS Backstroke Start Wedge?
This innovative device adds power and agility to backstroke starts and eliminates slipping.
FINIS worked with Vince Harris at WEDG Swim Start Systems (County Cork, Ireland) to develop the FINIS Backstroke Start Wedge. Vince, an Irish engineer and swim dad, began making wedges for his daughter's swim team after learning how expensive they were. He had one goal in mind: to create an affordable alternative that fits all standard blocks and gives every swimmer the chance to practice competition starts.
Here's how a FINIS Backstroke Start Wedge can help your times:
The Backstroke Start Wedge is FINA-compliant and can be used during training and competition to help get an explosive start without slipping.
Unlike expensive automatic devices, Backstroke Start Wedge is manual and can be set up multiple ways to fit all standard starting blocks. Swimmers can also easily adjust the wedge to their desired height through five different settings to optimize their backstroke start.
It's FINA FR 2.10-compliant for practice and competition so you'd be mad not to kit your pool out today!
