Reviewer: Gordon O., - View all my reviews
Hand paddles. Ive not seen a consistent name for this kind of product. I think of them as fins for the hands.
My swimming workout seemed to be lacking something. SO I looked for an inexpensive "hand fins" so that I could experiment with them.
These work extremely well and are well priced.
I have 2 minor concerns: 1. The teenager deep inside me thinks they look dorky, like I put them together in my basement with sheets of plastic, surgical tubing and a hole punch. BUT THEY FUNCTION PERFECTLY!!!
2. I wonder whether, eventually, algae will start growing in the surgical tubing and gross people out. Im thinking probably not: I only use them in chemically treated swimming pools and I try to blow out the water after every swim. Still...THE FUNCTION PERFECTLY!!! and for a GREAT PRICE!!
