  • 11/20/2017 So far so good

    4 Review Stars By CRH

    I got the smallest size and they are still a little big for me but I have really small hands.  I had to ask my husband to help pull the straps through the holes -- very difficult -- but they for sure stay put!  I'm quite satisfied with my purchase and would certainly recommend them.

    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.

    These are sturdy and have a nice shape to them.  I should have ordered a "small" -- I thought that small would be kid-size but I'm a 5/3" woman and the medium is larger than I'd like.  Otherwise they are great!

    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

  • 12/14/2016 Works for me!

    4 Review Stars By TriSam

    I used these for the first time this morning and they worked great. I really like the fit and feel. Previously I owned a very basic set of rectangular hand paddles, but these are superior in fit and function. I would have given them 5 stars, but because I've only used them once, I thought I better not get too crazy about it. However, TYR is a product name I have always trusted, and they have yet to let me down, and I've been using various products of theirs since 1995.

    5 Review Stars By Paul

    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.

  • 4/8/2015 love those, but watch out for the size!

    5 Review Stars By goldenlion

    those paddles are really sweet, they are a great addition to my training making it more efficient and got me some extra motivation! I just started swimming about 2 years ago (I'm 24) for some extra work out, I go 3 times a week but I'm not super strong. I ordered the medium ones but immediately when I saw them I knew they were going to be too big. I thought for my first swim paddles I use I'd go easy on my arms and shoulders and reordered the small ones, which are perfect. I think even if you're stronger than me and are new to paddles, it's good to get smaller ones because your arms are probably not used to the extra pressure.
    Overall, a really really sweet training addition, a lot of fun and I feel like I'm getting better and stronger a lot faster!

    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.

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

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.
