Has anyone tried to put the Vasa Paddles on the SkiErg?

Looks interesting! You're planning to use the skierg as a swim trainer?

Yes, that's the idea.

I'm getting some elbow soreness with the stock handles, and I'm hoping this will take off some of the pressure.

It should be fairly easy to change it, but you never know, sometimes simple projects can be tricky

Funny coincidence that you should mention the elbow....I've been suffering from a slight case of golfer's elbow, medial epicondylitis. When using my Ercolina (similar to the skierg), I position my hands with the palms facing forward, not facing each other. That seems to not irritate my elbow as much.

Also icing several times a day & wearing an elbow sleeve helps.

While erging, I need to remember to drive my elbows BACK, without any movement out to the sides (the dreaded chicken wing position).
