A team of engineers together with a group of freedivers presented to the international community an unique device for diving – Lobster!
At the end of June in Turku (Finland), which hosted the freediving world championship, the team of engineers presented to the public Lobster Neck Weight – the weight system for freediving, which has no analogues in the world. The device has attracted attention of many participants. A pleasant surprise was the fact that some of the participants were able to establish new national records while wearing our new product.
What is Lobster?
Lobster is a completely new tool for freediving, not similar to the existing analogues. Lobster is not a collar, but a weight system, which can be adjusted by diver’s needed weight. Lobster consists of the main part (2.5 kg) and 5 different segments (100 to 500 grams). The removable sections fixing system, the wide variety of “weights”, as well as the overall anatomic design makes Lobster the most convenient of all devices for diving.
How it works?
Due to its design features, as well as the placement on the diver’s body, Lobster allows you focusing on doing the exercises. Because the fact that the weight of our system balances the center of buoyancy, located in the lungs, with the diver’s mass center, which is usually located in the atlete’s hips area. In result, swimmer is placed horizontally in the water and is capable to swim longer distances underwater.
Particular attention should be paid to the form of Lobster. The appearance of Lobster resembles the representative of crustaceans, but in fact, is the second athlete’s spine.
The main part is made in the form of a collar, which is fixed through the girth of the athlete’s neck on the back. The form of removable sections repeats the athlete’s vertebrae and provides space for spine. Thus, thanks to the special shape and a flexible system of additional sections, Lobster does not hinder swimmer’s movements under the water, and the athlete does not feel a foreign object on his body, while wearing Lobster.
In the freediving world championship, which took place in Finland, an experimental batch of Lobster has been presented to athletes, who have shown interest in this unusual device. The participants were testing the weight system during their trainings. The freedivers loved Lobster so much, that everyone, to whom it was presented, has decided to use it in the competitive part of the championship.
As a result, thanks to our colleagues, and despite the general approval, we have identified some flaws. Right now, we are fixing them.
Anette Rafen Ottzen has established a record of Denmark, and then shared her impressions about Lobster: “One thing I noticed about the lobster was that after each dive I forgot to take it off when I came out of the water – it was not until I got home and saw the pictures that I actually realized how long I kept wearing it after my dive – it is so comfortable and that would never happen with my old neck weight (which is off as soon as possible)”
Tomomi Suga Hamazaki, who has established the national record of Japan, also commented on our development: “I feel my body is stable, not go up or down. Supporting back is more comfortable than supporting neck. In addition, neck is not pressed compare with normal neck weight, so I do not feel tighten neck. And, shape is quite cute!! I have made 160m PB and NR today DNF!! Thank you so much!!”
Now, we have opened the pre-order, so everyone, who wants to buy Lobster, may post their orders. A month later, an updated version will be ready. You can order the weight-collar from us in the complete set, and additionally you can buy the weights-segments. Currently,Lobster Neck Weight is available in two color versions: black and red.
Very soon, an official store will appear on our website, where anyone will be able to place his order for the freediving Lobster Weight System and all its components.
And now, we are glad to offer you the preorder service of (insert the link) – we already managed to solve all development issues, and our technical team of specialists is already preparing the collars for every person interested.

For a while the only way to get a neck weight for freediving was to build your own with a bit of trial and error and praying that it never burst in the pool. In the past few years there have seen a few manufactured weights coming to market all with different properties and advantages. So i figured it was time to get on board and recently purchased a new popular model the lobster weight to use at the coming pool nationals.
the lobster consists of a flexible 2.5kg polyurethane coated lead collar with soft silicone pads on the underside for comfort. this allows the wearer to bend and shape the weight to the neck while offering a minimal and comfortable fit.
The “tail’ consists of several locking pieces that can be arranged to suit your own customized weight up to 4kg. these pieces come in 500,400,300,200 and 100gram segments. these pieces join by a notched t-join and are secured with a rubber stopper to prevent any segments coming back out of their notches. the design itself is very sleek and conforms to the upper shoulders and back without feeling too bulky.
The design itself lends itself as being more hydrodynamic and balanced with buoyancy than a conventional weight while also providing a relief to the necks of many heavy weight carrying divers by sharing the load over the upper back.
I tested the weight in both no fins and dynamic with a monofin, i used a Salvimar Fluyd 2.5mm pure swim for the suit with a full 4kg setup on the lobster weight
Dynamic no fins – straight away from the push off test you notice the reduction in drag as well i was hitting slightly above my average for a push off ( average from 5 push off tests was 15m).
During the swim the weight does a solid job of holding down the back of my suit preventing anymore drag and the lack of a clip on the front of my throat means my neck doesn’t feel enclosed. it did however take a few swims to get used to feeling of a solid object around the sides of my neck but you do get used to it over time. the only issue with the collar is that if you squeeze on it too tight it may feel constricting around you neck and will have to be bent away with your hands, take some time to figure out what shape suits you. A bonus though is there is now a reduced load on my neck and i hardly notice the weights on my upper back.
Dynamic – very much the same feeling of streamlined smooth swimming was experienced. i found the lobster worked much better during dynamic as it sits firmer against the shoulders and you begin to really notice how well it cuts into your hydrodynamic profile. not much else to report on other than to be careful on your turns. the weight grips well enough that you wont lose it but can shift around if your turn is too aggressive.
-Great for reducing drag and boosting streamlining
-well made design and simple to use
-will never have to worry about a neckweight falling apart in the pool
-customization means many potential weights and suit combinations can be had without having to make separate weights.
-can feel rigid around the neck if squeezed too tight
-will shift around a bit if your turn is too aggressive
-price is 150 euros for a complete set and up to 70 euros for shipping
-cannot be used for depth

The system of freediving weights could not miss the freediving championship „2017 OneFreedive Beijing Summer Pool Competition”, which took place on 19-20 August, 2017, in the capital of China, Beijing. Lobster was tried for the first time at a championship in China, and this fact has brought remarkable results. During the championship, there were set three national records, two of which were obtained with Lobster.
The participant from Taiwan, Alan, has set a national record, swimming 100m in DNF discipline. He used the red Lobster with some attached weights. And the Chinese freediver Seal Chen managed to beat one of the China’s records in the same discipline with a result of 127 m, and this time he was helped by the black Lobster.
The official dealer of Lobster in China, M&X Subgear, presented a new range of colours of the Moldovan weights system during the championship, and brought four samples to give freedivers the possibility to test it. Both men and women have dived with Lobster, detaching some weights to adjust it to their body weight and showed remarkable results and great interest in the product .
The winners of the championship were given a Lobster as a prize, as Lobster Weight System was the partner of „2017 OneFreedive Beijing Summer Pool Competition”.
