The AT Xception Superlight paddle is the choice for the well-rounded paddler who enjoys a variety of conditions and strokes.
Sizing for AT Xception Superlight Paddle:
A 230 cm paddle is the most popular length for paddlers who use a relaxed style of paddling and whose strokes are at a low angle in relation to the surface of the water. This style is very common and used during recreational outings and most touring environments. If you are under 6 foot or prefer a higher angle stroke, you might consider a 220 cm paddle.
Once again, AT has made a paddle impossible to beat for smooth responsiveness. The light swing weight makes stroking easy, and the subtle bent shaft eases wrist tension on all-day paddles.
Recently got the new all-carbon Xception SL Tour to complement my older style carbon/kevlar Xception Standard Tour. It is magnificent. All positive aspects listed apply here as well with a few notable exceptions. This paddle is light: 26oz on my digital scale. As light as the bent shaft Kalliste by Werner. Despite its weight it feels very solid, much more so than a few of the other ultra-light paddles out there. The edges especially are smooth, taper nicely, and are not too thin. Much more power. Again to compare it to the Kalliste (I assume its main competition) it is about 5% larger and has a shape that, I believe, provides greater flexibility in paddle angle. It is also a work of art. It's just a beautiful paddle. I've been using it heavily for over a month and I honestly can't think of anything I don't like about it. I do believe that there is a certain amount of subjectivity when it comes to bent shaft paddles. Everyone's stroke and grip is different. Different paddle brands' bends won't fit everyone the same. So make sure you try them all. AT's grip has the mildest bend of them all and for me, it's just right. Your results may vary. Also note that I've had outstanding customer service from AT.
The Xception is simply the most comfortable and stroke efficient paddle for demanding and long trips. We highly recommend it to all our clients
my go-to touring paddle for over 10 years. light weight and quick response in any conditions. I've used this paddle on everything from early morning glass to overhead surf, and it's never let me down.
