Summary

Great bang for your buck!

Manta-Ray fiberglass paddle—This is a great all around recreational paddle. I do a lot of kayak fishing and some touring. This paddle is more suited for recreational use.

The only thing I do not like about the fiberglass construction is the wrap. It does not feel so great on your bare hands during long paddles.

Other than that this paddle holds up great. I bash it up against rocks, throw it on shore, push off of sandy beaches and it still looks the same as the day I bought it. Highly recommended for the recreational paddler. Plus, you can't beat the price.

The blade's beefy construction and cross-sectional shape mean you get instant power for each stroke, and the two-piece design makes it easy to store this paddle inside your kayak or truck for transportation.

The Aquqabound Manta Ray Fiberglass kayak paddle has more horsepower for big boats, high-angle paddlers and moving water. With a fiberglass shaft to help reduce fatigue and strain and our new stiffer, lighter abXII blades, this is a great recreational paddle.
