The Feather is a small/medium sized touring paddle. This paddle is extremely light and easy for both beginners and more experienced paddlers. They have taken loads of abuse and not a single mark on them to date. Highly recommended! Length: 21.25" Width: 5.875" Area: 97 sq. in. Weight: solid shaft 220cm glass: 940 grams graphite: 720 grams
