A 4-piece paddle that breaks down for travel, the Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Hybrid Posi-Lok carbon-shaft kayak paddle is suited to exploring your local waters with a low-angle paddling style.
You love to paddle--morning outings, day trips, weeklong adventures--but you'd rather not have a paddle that feels like a barbell after twenty minutes of paddling. Aqua-Bound made the Sting Ray Carbon 2-Piece Paddle with a carbon shaft and carbon blades for a lightweight feel hour after hour.
The Aqua-Bound Sting Ray is an excellent all-purpose paddle with a blade shape that is silky smooth through the water. . 4-piece paddle breaks down really small, perfect match to portable inflatable boats like the walker bay kayaks. 4-piece paddles also make excellent back up paddles, often fitting inside kayak hatches. Fiberglass/carbon shaft saves weight and feels great in the hands. Blades are made of tough ABX nylon/fiberglass. 2-hole snap button ferrule adjustment lets you set the feathering angle at 0 or 60 degrees with right hand control. Asymmetrical blade shape for more efficient touring. Made in Canada.
When you're exploring narrow inlets and darting through ocean waves you can't always be sure you won't smack the occasional rock with your paddle. The Aqua-Bound StingRay Aluminum Shaft 2-Piece Paddle doesn't mind rock smacks. The aluminum alloy shaft and abX resin blade material work together to create a strong, durable paddle. Aqua-Bound made the StingRay Paddle blade with a soft dihedral shape that lets water flow easily off after each stroke so you're not plagued with fluttering. When it's time to load up, simply pull the two pieces apart for easy transportation in your kayak or truck.
