A specialized paddle, designed to maximize the striking force, through the use of holes drilled in the striking portion of the paddle.
Developed in the 1930's by Harold Spencer.
Mr. Spencer, an inventor and teacher in the Eastern USA, believed that an air cushion was created from the flat paddle surface, when it was applied to a wayward offender.
He believed that by drilling holes, it allowed for the air to escape, thus maximizing the actual impact itself.
This is an oblong paddle, approximately 17inches by 4inches.
Made of quarter inch plywood, holes are drilled through the surface to allow any trapped air to dissipate, as the end comes into contact with the recipient of the paddling.
