Industry News: FINIS Announces New Sizes of Agility Paddles; Strapless Paddles Designed For Maximizing Swim Stroke Efficiency

LIVERMORE, California, November 13. FINIS, a world leader in technical swimming products that maximize your fitness potential and technique, announces the immediate availability of multiple Agility Paddles sizes. The strapless Agility hand paddles help a swimmer maintain proper fundamental hand placement during all four swim strokes. Modeled perfectly to fit a swimmers hand for a natural feel, swimmers will be happy to add these to their swim routine. By popular demand, FINIS has expanded the size range of their successful Agility Paddles to come in small, medium and large. FINIS Agility Paddles are available for $19.99 MSRP at

The new sizes of Agility Paddles have been scaled proportionately. Although most swimmers should fit in size “medium”, wearing a paddle that is too large could result in shoulder strain. The sizing options provided by FINIS ensure every swimmer can find the right Agility Paddle for them. To find the correct size, swimmers should measure their hand circumference and consider the vertical length of the paddle when referring to FINIS' sizing chart.

“The agility paddles really help me focus on perfecting my arm catch during the stroke cycle. Due to the strapless nature of the paddles it's necessary to maintain positive pressure to keep the paddle from moving off my hand,” says Jason Dunford, 2008 Olympic Finalist and current African Record Holder. “Unlike other less technical paddles, these are molded perfectly to fit the hand. They allow me to maintain a natural feel, meaning I can better practice the mechanics of my stroke.”

The Agility Paddles' convex design teaches a proper palm positive hand position by encouraging the swimmer to have an early catch. The paddle will only remain in place if the swimmer maintains traction with the water, thus creating more propulsion and maximum efficiency. In addition, the built-in thumbhole creates proper hand placement with the thumb and fingers in the ideal natural position.
