Description

We're a bit overstocked on these so we are going to put them on sale for a while at just $50 each. Buy three or more and get free shipping to the lower 48 if you phone your order in. Although these are a bit heavy and not really the most efficient blade design, they make a good spare for friends and are handy for traveling (see specs in the main write-up below).

The blades on this 4-Piece Recreational Kayak Paddle 220cm (7'2") BIC are not overly flexy, but neither are they the stiffest we've ever seen. They are asymetric and curved, 7" wide, with a pointy tip at the top outer edge of each blade. These blades are off-white with dark orange trim lines, and the aluminum shaft is black anodized. There is no direct aluminum to aluminum contact at the two blade joints, so you do not have to worry about this portion fusing together if you use them in salt water. However, the center joint is direct metal-to-metal contact, so you do need to take them apart into at least two pieces after ocean use.

4-Piece Recreational Inflatable Kayak Paddle Details

The Rec paddle is about 2 pounds, 14 ounces, so not a lightweight but they do have some nice features. They are shock-corded like tent poles to keep all four pieces together, come in a little mesh bag, and the biggest piece is only 25" long. These are fine for touring (oceans, lakes, etc) or calmer rivers, but are not strong or wide enough for any real whitewater. A very reasonably priced "airplane-able" option. The shaft is not covered with anything at the grip areas, so these are cold to the touch on chilly days. Best to use this paddle with gloves if it's cool outside.
