I think the Amazon man is really Father Christmas don’t you? Except he comes FAR more often.
I went to a Speedo drop-in class a couple of weeks ago. I wasn’t quite sure what I was expecting but it turned out to be a half-useful session-cum-sales pitch for their products.
I have most of their products in my collection anyway so I was a little shocked to discover the Finger Paddles. I confess to never using them before on the grounds that “they will be like proper paddles but a bit rubbish and smaller”.
Once again I was wrong.
Regular paddles build strength and, IMO, help with technique too.
The finger paddles are focussed on technique. Even though they are small, funnily enough just a bit bigger than all of your fingers, they REALLY help me with initiating the catch and feeling my technique in the first part of the stroke. I was surprised at how useful they were. They will form a regular training staple over the winter.
I’ve only used them a couple of times and they were WELL WORTH £6. Nearly as useful as a pull buoy (OK that’s taking it too far, they are good tho)
No I’m not going to do a review on them. I’ve already run out of things to say 🙂
Summary: Cheap as chips stocking filler. When you give them as a present to a loved one don’t forget to moan/lie that all the cheap ones had sold out and you had to buy one at the bizarre price of £26 that seems to be shown sometimes.
