PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The TYR™ Catalyst Contour Training Paddles help develop the proper form since they will throw your hand off course if the form is wrong.

• Training paddles.
    - Material is flexible and durable.
    - Plane contours: convex to form into the palm.
    - Helps create a natural swimming form.
    - Concave form on the underside to help with the proper stroke.
    - Hand is kept in line if it is correct and when the form is off, the hand will go over course.
• Polypropylene: balance between impact resistance and flexibility.  
• Imported.

    As a newbie swimmer I had seen others using training paddles & decided to order some along with a pair of training fins.
    Big feet need big fins, big hands need big paddles right? Wrong.
    I should have gotten smaller ones until I become strong enough & have proper technique to use paddles this large. According to my swim Instructor I can injure my shoulders & after using them only a couple of times I understand.
    I'll probably be ordering a pair much smaller.
    They're well made though with lots of options for hand placement

    My coach recommended I try training paddles to build my pull strength.  I am a swimmer who started later in life and my freestyle technique is not always the best but since I have been using these training paddles my technique, strength and endurance have all improved as well as my lap times.  The paddles are easy to use, the contour forms very well to the hand and there is no slipping when adjusted correctly.

    The smaller paddles offer another type of workout compared with the larger model. I like to use both large and small during my workouts.

    The paddles are exactly the size and shape as described.   They performed well in the water and help your stroke as anticipated.   Great investment for adding strength to arm and chest muscles while swimming.

    I bought the medium for my 13 yr old girl.  These are too big for me, let alone her.  The paddles themselves are fine, just too big.

    I bought the red (large) paddles and the white (small) versions to vary my workouts; both are good buys and very effective.

    The design concept works. They function correctly.

    There were no product instructions for installing the straps, leading to customer experimentation to install the straps. The straps were short, so short one could not install them as in the product pictures and have enough length left to allow one to slip their hands under the straps.

    The shortness of the straps limits experimentation of their placement.

    Such stinginess with relatively inexpensive straps shows poor marketing judgment.

    Easy to fit for various hand sizes.  I have a stronger upper body so I got the large but if your new or smaller don't get to large a size.

    Simple design and comfortable to use

ABOUT THIS BRAND

TYR


Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
