Durable aluminum shaft makes this paddle a reliable introductory paddle. Fiberglass reinforced polypropylene blades are
efficiently designed and offer impressive power when on the water.An alternative to a completely straight shaft along
the entire length of the paddle is a bend in the shaft where the normal hand position lies. The shaft is bent or
"cranked" to minimize the amount of wrist flex during the forward stroke. Those who tend to grip hard on a paddle and/or
fail to execute proper torso rotation often tend to prefer the alignment positioning benefits of the bent shaft paddle.
