Carlisle Outfitter Paddle-Blue-57in - Carlisle Outfitter Paddle - Favored by commercial outfitters for its high strength-to-weight ratio, the Outfitter features a reinforced blade fitted with an aluminum shaft. With its innovative blade design, the Outfitter has increased strength and rigidity over the Standard due to the reinforced polypropylene neck and strengthened aluminum blade spine. The shaft is covered with high-density polyethylene to provide a grip that resists nicks, dents and oxidation and a warmer feel than that of an aluminum grip.
Have used these paddles quite a bit since we got them. I purchased them for the local Boy Scout Troop and you know how boys are: hard on equipment. They have held up well and the big blade sure moves you through the water. Excellent deal at an excellent price
