Original Han's Paddles

These are the Original Hanís Paddles, the first paddle design from renowned swimming coach Dick Hannula. Their basic ďholed paddleĒ design enables them to be used with all four competitive strokes. They are the most versatile swim paddles available.

'Feel' the Water; Reach Your Goals

There are two different positions for practicing crawl stroke technique and backstroke drills. The variable positions enhance the swimmerís ability to adapt to the ďfeelĒ of the water on the hand. The purpose is to increase a swimmerís sense perception of water on the hand as a means to create a more powerful and effective stroke.

The Hanís Paddlesí tapered end when the paddle is in the frontal position place the paddle further forward on the hand, which helps the hand, wrist and elbow time their proper order of entry into the water. It encourages a downward sweep of the hand and a high elbow position, which are both crucial in a competitive swim stroke.

Donít let the idea of multiple positions fool you, simply reverse the position of the Original Hanís Paddle on the hand and you are all adjusted for a different stroke.

The size of the holes used in the Hanís Paddle was tested and optimized for reducing joint stress while still applying adding resistance.

Each pair of Original Hanís Swim Paddles is available in black only.

Team the Hanís Swim Paddles with the Water Gear Soft Buoy for increased resistance, which allows you to better focus on stroke technique and effectiveness while improving strength and endurance.

If you like the Original Hanís Swim Paddles, you should also take a look at the Hanís Paddles Groover, a swim paddle designed for free and backstroke swimming. A single tubing attachment over two fingers challenges the swimmer to hold the paddle on the hand by using the constant pressure of water through the full range of an underwater stroke.

The Aqua Gear Opinion

Multiple hand positions that cover a variety of competitive strokes make the Hanís Paddle a great deal for the price. Though at face value, it has a very simple, square design, itís this same simple, square design that adds incredible resistance to your stroke without causing undue strain in your joints.

The Bottom Line

The Original Hanís Paddle is an affordable do-it-all swim paddle. A simple flip of the paddle covers the entire spectrum of competitive strokes, and improves technique, strength and endurance. Polish your stroke technique and polish off a few seconds of your lap time with a pair of Original Hanís Paddles from!
