We review the Finis PT triathlon swimming paddles

Finis PT Paddles
£23.99
www.finisinc.com; www.swimshop.co.uk

Unlike regular paddles, which create greater resistance against the water to increase strength, these Perfect Technique (PT) paddles from Finis have a smooth, potato-shaped surface to reduce grip on the water. The effect is much like the fist-drill but even more pronounced – meaning that without the flat of your hand to push against the water, you have to really get your forearm vertical for propulsion and use every advantage from tucking in your core to optimising rotation in order to get through the water. We found that 150m sets with these made swimming afterwards feel more powerful with increased efficiency and distance per stroke. Fitting is easy via the cut-to-size rubber bands and the backs of the paddles have raised dots to aid grip.

 

Verdict


A must-have pool toy for those wanting to perfect their stroke
