The Mana Blade Wood Outrigger Paddle has a light stain on it to give this paddle a different look while still accentuating the natural wood. It has a thin blade giving this blade a clean entry without splashing. It's blade shape is the same as the Mana Blade Round
which has been tested and refined by some of the top paddlers in Hawaii. This paddle is all about value. It runs about $100 less than the balsa paddles the basswood in the blade face only adds about 2 ounces. The double bend shaft allows your lower arm's wrist to relax in a more natural position for extra comfort. This outrigger paddle is a great blade for first time and advanced paddlers alike.
