It is harder to win if you don’t start well. Wondering how to get more power out of the blocks? You could try our secret weapon - the Backstroke Start Wedge. This simple and affordable device lets competitive swimmers practice their race-winning explosive start.
FINIS Australia stock these so you can have them on the starting block in days no matter where you are in Australia, over the ditch and around Asia.
WHAT IT DOES
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 is an Irish engineer and swim dad who began making his own 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. Done!
HOW IT DELIVERS
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. And it's FINA FR 2.10-compliant for practice and competition!
