  • 8/16/2012 Great for improving technique

    rating star By Brian

    Got these based on recommendation from my coach to help improve my stroke. They have definitely helped me to feel what I need to do differently and hopefully after some more time I'll improve. I'm glad I listened to the other reviews about size and went with the lower size. I was split between the M and L, after using them I'm glad I went with the M.

    Also found a bunch of drills to do with them that I haven't had a chance to try yet but looking forward to it. Glad to have these in my swim bag!

  • 7/6/2012 Great Swim Paddles

    rating star By johncvent

    Has been a great workout so far.  Surprisingly, it is really very useful with breaststroke.  I also really enjoy backstroke and freestyle.  You can really feel the pull!

  • 1/30/2012 Run large, be careful!

    rating star By Susan M.

    I bought the "small" size (yellow) which is intended for older age group swimmers and beginner masters.  I consider myself more advanced than a beginner masters swimmer, but I wanted to make sure I got a smaller paddle to avoid shoulder strain.  As it is, I wish I had bought XS instead -- within two weeks of using these (for no more than a few hundred yards on any given workout) I have slight twinges of pain in my shoulders.

    I like the way they fit, and I like the holes that help you feel the water and reduce the resistance, but I wish I had followed my gut and returned them to get the XS.

  • 5/27/2011 Awesome for freestyle

    rating star By Mike.

    I use these paddles mostly for freestyle, they are kinda too big for any other stroke unless you get a smaller size. But they are awesome for improving entry into water, power through stroke, and exit of water. They are big and create a lot of resistance. I love the straps, much more comfortable than gloves or speedo paddles.

  • 6/13/2014 Favorite paddles

    rating star By Amanda

    I've only been swimming for about a year.  I swim to train for triathlons.  There are several types of paddles at the rec center pool where I swim and these are my favorite.  They are comfortable to swim with and seem to help me have a correct stroke.  Some of the others I've used are more awkward and don't make me pull as well.

  • 4/30/2014 Great paddle

    rating star By Chris C.

    I needed new paddles went with these. It took a few minutes to figure out how to put the rubber bands in. The paddles make we work harder which I was looking for. They are part of my routine doing freestyle and breast stroke during my workouts.

  • 5/18/2012 TOO LARGE

    rating star By Karlene I.

    The size small is way too big.  They are at least 3 times the size of your hand.  These will hurt your shoulder is sending them back.  I bought the same paddles before and loved them.  They must have been XSmall not small

  • 3/26/2012 Great Training Paddles

    rating star By Todd 1

    Extra cords are the best!  The chlorine breaks down the cords so having extra ones extends the life of the paddles.  The size is great for me, I originally returned the large.  I swim about 6k a week and the mediums are perfect.

  • 4/9/2011 Good Paddles

    rating star By Abomb

    These paddles are really solid. My coach wanted me to get the biggest paddles that I could find, so I got these. They are pretty much what I expected. I have seen paddles from the same exact brand in other sizes, and I would say that they are true to size. A very good buy! :-D

  • 2/21/2011 Strong Paddles

    rating star By Tristan

    Great for arm workouts - drills and pull swimming. I went with the largest size and they are not TOO big, just a good workout. If you have shoulder issues you'll need to be careful with these but I do have issues, and have been careful, and they are great. Sculling with these is good therapy. They come with three extra rubber straps.

  • 2/18/2011 It does the job

    rating star By swimgirl

    My swim coach recommended this product to help improve my free style stroke. It has made me more aware of my hand position as I enter the water and in my pull. I feel my stroke is more effective since I've been using the paddles.

    rating star By Bruce Dove

    Excellent product and one I have used for years.  I still have a pair that I have used for almost 10 years now, and I just wanted to have an extra set.  The shape in my opinion is the best one out there.
