Very light, just the right amount of flex, great bite, durable.and that line hook has saved me over $100 in what would have been lost tackle. All paddles are not created the same and this one was thoughtfully designed for serious anglers. I fish from a Vibe SeaGhost and purchased the 260 CM and it fits me and my boat perfectly. You can pay more but you won't find a better paddle.
The Angler Ace Paddle from Bending Branches is a perfect paddle for a kayak angler who is ready to move up from their introductory paddle or who want to start off with a high caliber paddle designed for fishing kayaks. Mine is used primarily for a sit on top fishing kayak and because I'm a taller angler I use the 240-255 cm model. For an angler kayak which is not as sleek as a rec kayak, you want to have a paddle with more surface area to help move you through the water, this one has ample paddle size to get you moving.
All of the key features you want in a great angler paddle are here:
- Carbon shaft that provides the right flex to make paddle strokes easier and reduce stress on joints, lessening fatigue during a long day on the water.
- Lightweight (only 31 oz!), with tough carbon blades for durability for not only paddling but fending off rocks, trees or anything else in your way.
- Adjustable ferrule to choose different paddle angles as needed for any situation.
- Will float if you drop in the water until you can retrieve it, some metal shaft paddles are at risk of sinking.
If you are looking for a paddle that won't fail you under all kayak fishing situations, this is a great option and is made in the USA!
It has three angle setting so you can find the one that best fits your needs. The lure grabbing notch is perfect for retrieving lures from the water or the accidental tree shot. I have used it to grab lures that other folks have lost and could not retrieve. I have saved money on not loosing lures and have gained some nice lures because of it.
Overall, this is a fantastic paddle that will be comfortable and deliver the power you exert when you need it! Plus, it looks great with it's black checkerboard pattern!
