ultralite

Price: $185.00
Type: Lightweight
Description:
The Ultralite has western red cedar with eastern white pine, and some tulip for compression resistance.  The paddle weighs approx. 20 -22 ounces (depends on length and width)  and is gorgeous!  A slight lip assists the blade 'purchase', and even if you don't know what this means, it is critical to blade 'bite' or grip, as it enters the water.  I do a lot of testing on blades, and this is one of the most critical features.  This style blade also eliminates blade waffle -- something you will notice with fuller blades that have no lip.  Balance is excellent, so the blade and shaft share a unique feel -- as one!  
        These blades are very durable.  The edges are wrapped in a double red maple banding, they are epoxied and glassed with 2 ounce cloth; a laminated maple/phenolic tip is embedded into the powerface; they flex, so they don't just suddenly snap, like a carbon shaft will under sudden duress. 
        The two paddles shown are a 9" and a 10", both with fairly dark cedar.  This darker cedar isn't always available -- but it sure shows nice!!  Seriously, cedar is more likely to be somewhat lighter, but still gorgeous.  
        Please feel free to ask if you have any questions. 
Note;  the two lower pics are of 10.5" paddles and were sent to me by the owner, who has used them about a year (his tape on shaft) --

Shaft Help

I offer several different types of shafts....

Braided carbon fiber shafts are the strongest shafts, weigh about the same as the carbon fibre, and have more flex (not a lot, but more).  These won't shatter under extreme duress, as some carbon fibre shafts do. 

Carbon Fiber Shafts
 are strictly carbon fiber.    Lightweight, no flex. 

The Standard wood shaft is made from select Tulip, which all of these:  great to work with, suitably light,  very strong for it's weight, and highly durable (so if you don't like refinishing your paddle every year, it won't rot away!)
