BLADE TIPS

Paddle tips protect your blades from being knocked around while in the water. They can reduce wear and tear on the edge. 
However, they can increase the weight of your paddle. So if you paddle mainly on flat water at average distances, they may not suit your style. If you paddle in harsher environments, such as rivers, they can help extend the life of your blades immeasurably.

If you would like advice on whether you need Blade Tips, please give Terry a quick call on 021 074 8485.

Metal Tips

  • Maximum protection
  • Recommended for rocky rivers
  • Higher maintenance: need filing regularly to keep them sharp

Carbon Tips

  • Designed for flat water and marathon kayaking
  • Offer improved protection and wearability
  • Don’t need sharpening 

SHAFT

Adjustable or fixed shaft? 

Adjustable shafts give you a range of paddling lengths - useful for different paddling conditions. Adjustable shafts are also much easier to travel with!

Fixed shafts give the paddle a firmer feel as there's no join in the middle.

NB: SHAFT COST IS INCLUDED IN THE PADDLE BLADE PRICE.
If you would like to order an adjustable shaft, simply add the adjustable shaft to your cart and we'll include it in your order.
