The voyager blade shape gives a lot of power for very little effort while in use .
the overall finish is superb and a very light weight paddle with each blade showing red carbon o the inside and silver on the reverse side

The scoop of the voyager blade moves a lot of water at each stroke .
The strong spine gives it all the strength needed to achieve this through the water

This paddle has a cranked shaft which is very comfortable on the wrists and hands it is designed to give maximum comfort while paddling you won’t get acking wrists after a long days paddling.
The shaft is slightly of round which aids in grip while using the paddle

The superb varihand adjustable  system is adjustable for both length and feather so you can get it just right for you I found this easy to use even with cold wet hands you can clearly see the well marked gauge on the shaft for setting the paddle .

The finish on this paddle is superb through-out just note how cleanly the blade is jointed with the shaft and how neatly the blades are edged

This fantastic carbon blade with red striping in it is stunning but it’s not just there for decoration this red piping adds a lot of extra strength to the blade.

I think Mitchell have got this top of the range paddle just right its light weight. Very strong. Nice on the hands and wrists .and delivers total power when used.
The varihand adjustable  system is easy to use and set the cranked shaft is superb to use and very comfortable on the wrists the whole design of this paddle screams quality.
I found that for very little effort the paddle delivers a lot of power. The retail of this paddle is £249.99 This is fantastic value for such a top end paddle and worth every penny.
