    Feels too big

    Bought a set of these for each of my two children who swim competitively.  Based on their hand measurements according to the Finis sizing guide I ordered one set of small and one set of medium.  The small fit perfect on my 12yo but the medium was way to large for my 14yo''s hands.  The medium fit me perfectly (5ft 10in, 205lb)   despite the size guide stating I should buy a size large so I kept them and ordered another set of small for my 14yo.  My kids use them regularly at swim practice and like the fact that they do not have to mess around with straps.  I used them for the first time a couple weeks ago and really liked this product...especially for breast stroke.  As the hands move forward during breast stroke the paddles greatly magnify any resistance of the water due to poor hand/arm angulation giving the swimmer instant feedback they can use to self-correct their hand/arm position.  I found this product easy to use for freestyle and did not run into any problems with the paddles falling off unless I purposely used incredibly terrible form.  My assessment for freestyle is that the product advert that these offer a benefit by encouraging proper form is a bit overstated as if one has even moderately decent form they stay put on the hand unless you wilfully provoke them to fall off.  The ease of putting them on and taking them off over shadow the advertising fluff.  Further research on the size found a blurb by Finis that states something along the lines of 90% of swimmers will need size medium....so if you are ordering for kids I would recommend leaning heavily towards buying size small.

    These paddles are great at providing instant feedback about "dead spots" in your stroke.  Proper technique will keep the paddle on your hand without needing to grip them.  Can be used in all strokes.  Superior water feel.

    They are easy on/off so there is minimal change over time.  You can easily alternate w/ w/o paddle swims within a set.

    The thumb hole can be irritating if used for extended periods.

    This is one of those products that make you go "duh... why wasn''t this invented until now?". You don''t need those stupid rubber bands that are always pinching, rubbing and breaking off. The shape of these paddles allow for a clean entry and streamline off the wall and you will forget you are wearing them until your shoulders remind you of the extra workout you want and are getting. For long workouts, wrap a little tape around your thumbs until you get used to them but they are sooooo much more comfortable than any other paddle I have used and trust me... I have used them all.

    The notch sits on your thumb knuckle. Cut me each time I used  them. Sold them on ebay. Not good...

    Feels true to size

    The good thing about the Finis Agility Paddles is that they are easy to put on and take off.  They work well with all stokes, but are a little uncomfortable for longer workouts (an hour or more and they become a thumb workout as well). They do provide good resistance.  My only criticism is that they don''t float. So, if you lose one, you''re diving down to get it.

    these paddles are the best she used so far, the size are on the mark (my daughter just turned 9 years old) and I thought they would be too big, they are a good fit. this product make you concentrate on your hand position verse the rubber band type which gives you more leeway. her hands were a little fatigued but that will get better once she gets used to the new style.

    Feels true to size

    This is the first time I have used hand paddles and I like them.  I wear a ladies large glove, but I wouldn''t consider my hands to be big. I purchased the small size paddles and they are just a little bit bigger than my hands. Since I am not a strong swimmer, and also battling a shoulder injury I didn''t want too much resistance and the small size seems perfect for right now. THe lack of straps was not a problem for me although the area where my thumbs slide through the paddles did get sore  the first week or so that I used them. Good sturdy plastic - not bendable as some others are - they work for me.

    Feels true to size

    The first few laps felt a little strange to have pressure near the thumb joint but I ended up doing 8 x 100 with these on and they felt fine. They really do force you to focus on your form which is great.
    I was worried about what size to get and ended up getting the small, it measures 6.5" in length and feels like the right size for me (I''m 5''3").

    I''m 6"2" so I purchased the large size which works well. I was still able to keep a small separation between all my fingers. I did a fairly fast 500 yard set and did swim slightly slower than when I''m using the current huge paddles that most companies sell. The "wings" on these paddles do not extend past the side of your hand as far as the current popular paddles. I only had a slight skin irritation around the bottom thumb knuckle after my set which is still better than the finger joint pain I would get from the tight elastic straps of other paddles. I let two other highschool club swimmers try the paddles and they both agreed that these are superior to standard paddles. The paddles do force you to have a more perfect stroke, but I do not agree that they are made for all four strokes. They are good for all except breaststroke. I think the quick loop in the stroke with the forward push make the paddles flip outward which is counterproductive. I had to severely adjust my hand position to keep the paddles aligned. I still highly recommened these paddles for stroke strengthening and mainly stroke technique. Good job Finis.

    Love these. So comfy and helpful with proper hand placement and improving stroke strength.
