Details
Hippo Stick Carbon Fiberglass Composite SUP Paddle.
 
All the same design features as the AL PRO paddle, but with your wallet in mind.
 
The AL EXP paddle utilizes a combination of fiberglass and carbon fiber to help achieve high performance paddling. The handle is fiberglass and the blade is fiberglass. The shaft is 30% carbon fiber and 70% fiberglass, which means more shaft flex. More flex means more loss of input to output ration (example: anytime something is flexing you are losing immediate response which in turn means less than optimum acceleration). However, flex can be a good thing when paddling long distances and/or you have a body that needs some forgiveness during each stroke.
 
Ideal for SUP surfing, touring, and recreational paddling.
