The Palm Paddle is a swim aid designed specifically to help develop a good catch – the most difficult part of the swim stroke to achieve – and also to get a good “feel” for the water so that the swim stroke becomes more efficient. Being much lighter, and ergonomically designed to sit comfortably in the palm of the hand, the Palm Paddle is the most effective and comfortable swim aid of its kind!
The Palm Paddle is being used regularly by pro- and age-group triathletes, swimmers and clubs and being incorporated into their swim sessions to help develop stroke efficiency.
Paul Newsome, Head Coach at Swim Smooth – “I love using the Palm Paddle with my swimmers. It comes in especially useful when I’m introducing the concept of an efficient catch and feel for the water, which is ordinarily one of the most elusive aspects of the freestyle stroke. I can highly recommend the ergonomic fit, feel and application of this paddle.”
By including the Palm Paddle into the warm-up routine, the swimmer will establish a good stroke that can start to be carried over into the main set; similarly, using the Palm Paddle in the warm-down helps to re-establish a good stroke after the main set.
Reviews of the Palm Paddle from coaches, professional and age group triathletes, swimmers and the triathlon media continue to prove overwhelmingly positive
