Created and developed by Ron Johnson (World Record Master swimmer, former ASU Head Coach, inventor of the Strokemaker and Catalyst training paddles). The Mentor is perfect for swimmers of all levels, from fitness swimmers to triathletes. This evolutionary, technical paddle is designed to build strength without losing feel, and the Mentor catches water quicker on the entry phase of the stroke than traditional paddles. It allows for maximum water feel and teaches you proper stoke techniques as well as specific strength development for all four competitive strokes. All while reducing shoulder stress.
Tested by World Champion swimmers, the Mentor is unanimously championed as a must for your training arsenal.
The Mentor is constructed of lightweight PVC foam for added flexion. The convex palm dome fits natural swimming hand position. It also has a multi-hole strap design for custom centering on hand. Other features include:
Entry/exit holes designed to maximize water feel. Alluvial Wing design helps reduce shoulder stress. Wrist strap placement aids in proper stroke recovery.
Extra strap tubing included. Color coded by size. Choose size required from the table below. For non-freestyle strokes, size down one paddle size.
