Feel the surge of anticipation course through your veins as you open the box containing your brand-new Aqua-Bound Surge Telescoping Ferrule Paddle. After touring with tank-like paddles, you'll be amazed how good your hands, shoulders, and torso feel after a full day on the water with the skinniest blade in the Performance series from Aqua-Bound. The shaft material resembles marathon runners: super lightweight and incredibly strong. Ovalized to better fit the natural shape of your hand, this paddle will help you slice through the water whether you're touring the sea caves along the Apostle Island National Lakeshore or taking your sit-on-top fishing along the St. Croix river.
T-700 Carbon, the same material used on some jets, keeps the shaft light and incredibly durable. While this shaft only comes in the ovalized, regular size, most small-handed paddlers won't be at a disadvantage. In fact, they'll feel in complete control. Ultra-stiff and crazy light, the multi-laminate fiberglass blades let you put the pedal to the paddle and click off the nautical miles towards your destination. The dihedral shape improves paddling efficiency and eliminates most, if not all, flutter—even when you're racing across glass-like lakes or powering through a bit of heavy lake chop.
The telescoping ferrule system gives you choice of 0 or 60 degrees of feather, right or left. In addition, you have the ability to extend your paddle by 15cm. Make it longer for that fishing trip, or keep it tight for a day on the open water in your touring boat. Between the adjustable length shaft and the feather angle option, you'll be comfortable slipping in some low-angle strokes so not as to disturb the fish, or powering through the chop (or racing your mate) with some vicious high-angle motion.
