    I felt my freestyle stoke technique improve the very first time I used these paddles. I swam with them on for a warm up set of 10 x 100 free. Then I took them off for the rest of practice and I felt how my entry, my catch, my pull, and exit was dramatically improved. The paddle is designed to give you instant feedback. It is like swimming with a coach right at your fingertips (quite literally actually). The paddle will stick to your hand if the stroke is done correctly and your stroke will feel smooth and correct. If any part of the stroke is done incorrectly the paddle will move out of place giving you the feedback you need to correct the stroke as it happens. It's great because that way you know exactly where you are deficient in your stroke. Also, you can use them for long workouts and your shoulders won't hurt because they don't push that much water. The more you use them the more you will create the muscle memory to execute the perfect freestyle stroke without thinking about it.

    I believe these are best for getting your hand position correct as you enter the water.  I''ve only been using them for a few weeks now, but they seem to be doing the job.  My only complaint is getting the little tube into the holes!  I snapped the 1st one in half immediately & had to use just the 1/2 of the tube that was left.

    Wow, these really do work.  Having used paddles in the past - I always found ways to cheat through the stroke once I got fatigued.  But these paddles allow no room for error.  You immediately notice the change in your technique and the requirement to follow through the entire stroke.  The paddle does not allow for any short cuts.  I''ve used them for a few weeks now and feel my stroke has improved.  Great purchase.

    They felt ''fun'' right away! Since lap swimming is the only comfortable kind of exercise I can do now, any thing that makes it seem fun is welcome.  And I think when I take them off and swim w/o the fins, my stroke does seem improved.  I once had some webbed neoprene hand fins with add-on weights!  they aren''t available anymore, so  couldn''t replace them when the material broke down. But though I think they actually built up my arm muscles, these hard plastic ones with skegs  work more on actually fine-tuning your freestyle stroke.  It is a very reasonably priced way to put some spark in your workout.

    I have used the paddles for a few swims and I am sold.  As several of the reviews note, the paddles will assist with stroke efficiency and position.  In addition, the paddles will give you some buoyancy and slows your stroke down which I have found to be very helpful as I am newer to swimming. I am training for a tri and swimming is my weakest area - in using the paddles I recently swam 1500 yards non-stop- prior to I had only swam 500 yards.  Slowing down really helped (during the catch and pull phase).  I used another set of paddles and the strain on my shoulders was much more- not so with these paddles- feel like I could swim forever based on the design, but you do need to be careful.  A cheap good investment that will improve your swimming.
