Description

Show Description

The blade on this paddle is angled at 12 degrees out from the shaft, positioning the blade vertically in the water during the most effective and powerful part of a forward stroke.

Folks doing long periods of flatwater paddling love this increased efficiency. (Note that some paddlers prefer to switch back to a conventionally-angled paddle when running whitewater – they find easier to lay out braces with a regular paddle).

  • Shaft is made of walnut and butternut and has a 12 degree bend.
  • Blade is made of laminated ash, bass, butternut and walnut.
  • Urethane plastic edging for increased durability.
  • Available in the following lengths: 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, and 56in.
