Dual Bend Manta Paddle Reviews
This is a fabulous paddle.…
This is a fabulous paddle. Easy on the shoulders and wrists for miles. Catches well, releases well. Especially great stern paddle as it aligns tracking with nuance due to cupping of blade in flat water and pry stroke off of ash rails on my north wind in strong winds. Comfortable slightly curled top grip is very functional with wrist angle enabling real power throughout stroke.Lower neck is trimmed and bent so that you always know exactly where the blade is based upon shaft curve and simple feel of draw. While a little heavier than my graphite’s, more stable, sure and comfortable over the miles. My favorite paddle.
