Han's Paddles were designed by Coach Dick Hannula of Tacoma, Washington. These black paddles feature well-designed holes balanced throughout each paddle. The holed openings in the paddles improve the feeling of water on the hand. This increased hand-sensitivity to the water leads to technical stroke efficiency. Han's Paddles are designed to minimize joint stress. The adjustable finger holes - 3 parallel positions with smaller holes near the center for the size of each swimmer's hand. The middle finger should reach the end of the paddle in the normal position.
