Gordon Walker’s comments:

“The Gamma is good for high rating but also works well when kept in the water for longer. I have found this paddle requires better feel and when used properly is a softer paddle which has a very even amount of pressure through the stroke. It allows for more low down rotation too."

CONSTRUCTION

Ultra light: Most common stiffness for use in flat water, marathon, ocean ski, multisport racing and down river racing. Lightweight construction with ideal stiffness for professional racers. Preferred by top paddlers.

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.

Metal Tips

  • Maximum protection
  • Recommended for rocky rivers
  • Higher maintenance: need filing regularly to keep them sharp
  • They should not be used in salt water environments.

Carbon Tips

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

SHAFT

NB: SHAFT COST IS INCLUDED IN THE PADDLE BLADE PRICE. 

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.

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.
