These high quality paddles are ideal for a wide range of uses; as a spare paddle or as an everyday paddle for use with whitewater or flatwater canoes. They feature brightly colored blades so you can find them in the water. Their aluminum shaft is 30% thicker than the average for superior strength and reliability when prying. The shaft has a tough insulating wrap and is topped off with a very comfortable half moon grip. 3 year warranty. Great for rental programs.
