The Aqua-Bound Eagle Ray Black Carbon paddle

The eagle ray is a tour shape paddle long slender blades for maximum power yet this paddle is very light.
My first impressions are.

This is a very well thought out paddle which is very light and powerful
You could paddle all day with it and not realise it .

I phone the importers Avoncraft twice to check the price as I thought a mistake had been made and we had been sent a more expensive paddle than the price on the paddle indicated.

The long slender blade shape is curved to allow maximum power using minimum effort for the paddler the stiff centre ridge gives a lot of strength and power to the blade. So a lot of water is moved with each stroke.

This has a 2 piece shaft which has a TLC locking system which means it’s easy to adjust the feather of the paddle the lock is a positive click lock once the blade feather is set.
It is well marked with all the positions easy to read to set.
The paddles are made in Canada and imported to the UK by Avoncraft

One of the first thing you notice with this paddle is the build quality it’s excellent and very well balanced in the hand The look of the paddle is again very pleasing on the eye the graphics on the blade set it off nicely .

Note the drip rings which are standard fittings on all the Aqua-bound paddles

The eagle ray black carbon  paddle is priced at £139.00 which I feel is excellent value for money
