Light and tight
Great paddle. I personally like a little less offset. But this this is the perfect amount of surface to pull ratio , no shoulder pain just a nice glide !
Excellent quality! Better than expected even!
Carbon and Bamboo 88
To be truthful, we received the paddles after me being not sure of the quality after reading of delamination issues of the Bamboo overlay. I was reassured by Nixy CS after contact. We recieved the paddles and I was pleasantly surprised.. After a single use the Bamboo started to delaminate. The carbon 88(12K) had some looseness issues in the joint between the blade section and the middle shaft section but I purchased it as a travel paddle and a spare. After contacting Nixy CS they OK'd a return which they paid shipping. The new paddles arrived and we returned the others. After some use ,all seems to be well. I am very happy with my paddle so far(as is the wife with her Bamboo), and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again...Thank you Nixy!
Well made three piece paddleboard paddle that works great for traveling
I've been a stand up paddler for many years and recently was needing a new paddle. I was on a paddling trip and broke a paddle and didn't have my spare paddle with me. With this new three piece paddle, I can easily now keep an extra paddle with me tucked away in my vehicle for these types of situations.
I paddled with it recently for a few days and I really like the performance of this paddle. I've previously used three piece paddles in the past, and they didn't connect together tightly and had a lot of wiggle and play in them which I didn't like. This paddle has a unique latching system that really locks each segment together well, preventing any twisting or play getting it very close to the feel of a one piece paddle.
It's also very light weight which is nice on long paddles especially on windy lakes. From an aesthetic standpoint I really love the look of the bamboo as well.
This paddle is very helpful for preventing shoulder injuries. I have a high quality Red Sport 11 sup. However, I was noticing how challenging it was to paddle upstream with my paddle with a nylon blade. With this paddle, it is easy to paddle upstream against slight rapids, and makes my flat water paddles much less strenuous. Trust me it’s worth the money to save your shoulders.
