While many training paddles only work with a specific arm stroke, the Speedo I.M. Tech Paddles were thoughtfully designed to work with all four competitive strokes. Their unique form allows swimmers to work on their catch, pull, and overall feel for upper body movement in the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
Feel the Water; Reign the Pool
The paddles are made from a combination of hard and soft materials for enhanced training performance. They are covered in water channel holes, which help retain the feel of the water for a more natural-feeling swim. The I.M. Tech paddles also come with adjustable tubing straps for a snug, chafe-free fit.
For Any & All Strokes
The Speedo I.M. Tech Paddles are extremely convenient for swimmers who regularly practice all 4 major strokes. The paddles allow swimmers work on all disciplines of their upper body stroke without having to stop and switch out gear. These multi-stroke paddles not only save you time, but also save precious space in your swim bag. The I.M. Tech Paddles are available in two sizes, S/M and M/L, in order to give you just the right amount of upper body resistance.
The AquaGear Opinion
As always, AquaGear testers were impressed with the Speedo brand quality. The I.M. Tech paddles were comfortable to wear and felt ergonomic on the hands. And while they produced a good deal of resistance to strengthen the upper body, they didn't put too much strain on the elbow or shoulder. And, as advertised, they really do work well with all four major strokes! Testers thought that swimmers should note that the paddles require switching hands in order to work with backstroke.
The Bottom Line
If you're an I.M. swimmer, or just one that enjoys training all four major strokes, then you definitely need a pair of multi-purpose Speedo I.M. Tech Paddles.
