"Good addition to the swim bag. Smaller than most paddles so less shoulder stress and unique shape helps reinforce good form in the swim"slornow

(4)

Ease of use

They take some time to get used to the paddles. Part of the reason is the paddles provide feedback on whether your stroke is correct

(5)

Quality of Construction

Hard not to give it anything other than a 5. Not a complicated piece of equipment but does what it advertises.

(4)

Fit

There is one piece of tubing on the back that you put a finger through to secure the paddle. Works fine for me.

(4)

Comfort

Not as comfortable as some but I suspect that is due in part to the feedback you get from the paddle. Its not just a piece of plastic that you strap to you hand and pound away. The bottom of the paddle sometimes rubs my wrist but I only really notice it if I have not used the paddles for awhile.

(5)

Adjustability

Easy to adjust the tubing for fit.

(5)

Durability

Been using them off and on for 4+ years. The rest of the time they are in the bottom of my swim bag. Paddle is hard plastic so the only potential component that might wear is the tubing. So far so good.

(4)

Value

A little more expensive than most paddles but also a different design

(5)

Performance

The paddle does a good job of giving you feedback if you ahve poor entry in the water a t the fron of the stroke and also does a good job of encouraging early vertical forearm in the pull.

Strengths

Solid piece of training equipment to help work on your swim stroke. Unique design and shape. Better than the run of the mill paddle...a little smaller so not as much stress on the shoulder.

Weakness

None really. Its a swim paddle so while it can help you work on you stroke no single piece of equipment is going to "fix" everything.
