Default Are hand-paddles a "No-No" in TI ?

I know Pull Buoys are "strictly-forbidden" because they unnecessarily send the wrong message to the body: "No need to worry about Balance, it is guaranteed". And then when you remove them your hips and legs sink like a stone !

But what about Hand-Paddles? Do they help the Total Immersion Stroke or not?
Is the Catch/Pull phase in traditional swimming not the same as TI-Style?

Thanks. ALEX
