Updated for 2023! The best-selling kayak fishing paddle on the market with high-performance features and 15cm of adjustable length. The adjustable shaft allows you to get the perfect fit for your frame and paddling style, so you can paddle comfortably for hours on end. With this kayak paddle, you're guaranteed the perfect blend of power and feel.

  • New for 2023: Smoother, larger and stronger blade. The new blade shape is larger than previous generations, providing more horsepower and control with every stroke. The improvements result in a smoother forward stroke with a stiffer feel, quieter entry and exit, and less chances for flutter. The upgraded fiberglass + nylon blade material is stronger (meaning less inefficiencies) and thicker, making it more durable and robust long-term.
  • Fiberglass-reinforced nylon blades are designed for forgiveness and just the right amount of flex, keeping the kayak moving efficiently even with extra gear slowing you down. 
  • 102.5 sq. inch blade it the ideal size for horsepower and control with the heavily loaded fishing kayaks, but not overly fatiguing, heavy, or flexible.
  • 100% fiberglass shaft is durable and strong, yet lighter than commodity aluminum, so it will hold up in the most uncertain of conditions while not draining all your energy. Fiberglass is also valued for being warm, plus flexible and forgiving when compared to aluminum.
  • The shaft is ovalized where the hands go for more comfort and control, and to limit the chances for blisters.
  • Versa-Lok offers 15cm of additional length and infinite feathering options, and does so with an easy to use and understand system that is secure (no disengagement), robust (will hold form for a very long time), and resistant to corrosion (nylon plastic and stainless steel parts).
  • Versa-Lok offers longer sizes than the previous generation of paddles, making it ideal for wider or bigger kayaks and the high seat position.
  • The Versa-Lok clamping system is backed by structural and cyclical testing, plus a decade of on-water use.
  • New carbon ferrule insert is light, tight, and right for the long haul. This is a sizable upgrade over plastic or glass ferrule inserts.
  • Available in two vibrant colors: Tidal Blue for the discrete approach and Electric Green for safety and standing out.
  • Built-in hook retrieval system for retrieving a snagged lure
  • 40-inch tape measure on shaft is a sizing guide, allowing you to verify catches on the spot 
  • Proudly hand built in Osceola, Wisconsin, USA, by a team of paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts.
