Hi there. Since I want to train more in the pool in the future I came across the Lobster neck weight system (https://lobsterweight.com). On Youtube you can find a lot of material but I think most is sponsored and not really objective. I believe the idea is neat but I wonder how well it works in reality. Is it worth the huge price? With shipping I have to pay more than 300€ which is frankly obscene for a... well, weight? Any experience is highly welcome.

I know someone who has a lobster and he is very satisfied with it.

The cheapest way is obviously to build your own neckweight. Its actualy quit easy. The lobster is better in terms of equaly balance the weight on your neck and on your back instead only on your neck.

One more alternative in Europe is Chaubaud.
You can contact him directly via facebook.

No. But it's the same email I communicated with him. Maybe he's on vacation.
