  • Material: Anodized aluminum shaft, glass reinforced nylon blades
  • Length: 230cm (90")
  • Blade Width x Length: 7" x 17"
  • Handle Style: Cold-weather grip with push-button feather settings
  • Warranty: One year

Choosing paddle length
When considering paddle length, a good rule to follow is to choose a paddle that's 30cm or roughly a foot taller than you when holding it upright. Also, make sure to take into account the width of your kayak in addition to your height. The greater the kayak width, the more paddle length is needed to reach the water. If you have a sit-on-top kayak and your seat is raised six or more inches above the base, add about three inches to your paddle length.

                I've owned several paddles in the past and find this one to be a really good mix of quality and cost. The lowest end models can fall short and the higher end ones don't pay off for a casual user. This one is a good rounded option and worth every penny.
