Show Description

An affordable wooden paddle suitable for both training and racing. It is made to the new 202 specification, is licensed with the International Dragon Boat Federation, and conforms to all sanctioned racing rules.

It features Grey Owl's innovative form-bent, laminated, multi-ply shaft. The shaft’s oval cross-section provides both a positive blade orientation and a comfortable feel. The cambered blade (curved tip) gives a smooth and turbulent-free stroke for maximum thrust with minimum slippage. The blade edges are protected with hardwood and feature a urethane plastic tip that can be sharpened to a knife-edge for clean, quiet entry.

  • Shaft is solid ash.
  • Grip is oiled maple for a comfortable, blister-free handhold.
  • Blade is bass with a urethane tip.
  • Shaft dimension is 3 x 2.8cm (1¼ x 1⅛in.).
  • Blade area is 0.08sq. m (118sq. in.).
