This outrigger paddle is properly named, because it is an absolute BEAST!!! It is modeled after Tahitian paddles, and true to the style it has a very high shoulder. Where other paddles start to round out this paddle keeps tapering up towards the shaft to create the biggest blade face in our inventory. Just like any other paddle from Mana Blade it is extremely thin and cuts into the water nicely. This paddle is great for training, sprints, and for anyone who wants to pull a ton of water every stroke. It is constructed to be extra durable with Tuff Epoxy edges that don't chip or crack under normal use.
