Made for small hands, the small-shaft Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Hybrid Posi-Lok carbon-shaft kayak paddle is suited to exploring your local waters via a low-angle paddling style.
The Renaissance man of paddles, the Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Hybrid is great for recreational paddlers and those looking to get some light touring under their belt. This paddle is lightweight and features the Posi-Lok ferrule for easy-to-adjust, smooth performance.. . . . Posi-Lok ferrule clicks into position firmly and securely; features strong, corrosion-free composite construction and a convenient dual-button release. Lightweight abX II resin blades are gas-assist plastic injection molded and reinforced with fiberglass for strength and durability. Ovalized pure carbon shaft provides superior performance and a low swing weight; smaller shaft size makes it easier for smaller hands to get a good grip. Breaks into two pieces for easier travel and storage.
The blade shape of the 2 Piece Stingray Hybrid Carbon Shaft Paddle is Aqua-Bound's most popular, allowing for responsive paddling in slow-moving water and all-around efficiency. As part of Aqua-Bound's touring lineup, the Stingray Hybrid is lightweight, reducing fatigue and letting you paddle mile after mile for all-day paddles or multi-day trips. As part of Aqua-Bound's Hybrid series, though, this versatile kayak paddle is fiberglass-reinforced to be a little bit tougher than Aqua-Bound's super-lightweight pure carbon touring paddles. This is ideal for kayakers whose adventures take them into rocky or variable waters where the possibility of breaking a paddle is real but is simply not an option. The blade itself is made of Aqua-Bound's exclusive fiberglass-reinforced nylon resin, which is lighter and stronger than previous generation resins.
The Sting Ray is the perfect all purpose kayak paddle with a blade shape that is silky smooth through the water. Solid in the water and light in the hand, the soft dihedral cross-sectional shape of the blade gives flutter-free performance and great ease of use. The all carbon composite small diamter shaft is lightweight yet durable, and features an innovative Posi Lok ferrule system which adjusts easily and clicks securely into place. Perfect kayak paddle for anything from a long afternoon jaunt to an extended trip for paddlers with smaller hands.abXII resin blades reinforced with fiberglass fibers are strong and lightweightAll carbon composite small diameter shaft is lightweight, durable and reduces fatigue and joint strainStrong, corrosion-free composite Posi-Lok ferrule easily adjusts by 15 degree increments and snaps securely into position; Dual button release.2 piece shaftPaddle Sizing:Base of palm to tip of middle finger measures 7 inches or greater, the regualr shaft (# 70882) is the correct size.
