Product Description

Start with the unique blade shape, allowing a less abrupt catch and higher cadence. Resized to meet the demands of today’s racers, but not so small to lose power. Gain a softer feel without sacrificing all your blade size. Note the unique 12 degree shaft to blade offset. A dihedral blade face makes it stable and consistent for all strokes. Feel the overall weight of just 14.75 ounces. Ultimate performance level uses the most advanced materials and process, gives elite level flex and balance for comfort and performance. Available in Straight ($389) or Bent ($465).
