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.
