Designed to stow in four compact pieces for easy travel, this Innova AquaBound Manta Ray Carbon Fiber Shaft Paddle is one of the lightest performance paddles you can pack and carry to those distant and international kayaking destinations. It features an aggressive high angle design that can be adjusted for three blade positions to suit your kayaking touring style. The shaft has an oval diameter so it feels comfortable on long hauls across the lake or inlet. Innova used a special ABX resin to enhance the paddle blade durability without adding excess weight. If 33 ounces still seems a little hefty for you, check out the Aquabound Manta Ray All Carbon Paddle.
