PERFORMANCE - STYLE - DURABILITY
Hard Core Paddles are designed to be excellent all-around whitewater kayak paddles, used by paddlers of various skill levels for creeking, playboating, river-running and racing.
The paddles are named according to the different shaft options. Each shaft option has the same light, durable, strong-catch carbon blades and is made with a composite-sleeved solid cedar core for light weight and optimum performance.

A simple 360 degree turn with the supplied Allen key will set or release the clamp. Because the joint has a built in locator you will want to choose the feather when you order.
