Sizing for Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Carbon Posi-Lok 2-Piece Kayak Paddle:
I've been kayaking for four summers at a nearby lake and didn't realize what a difference the right size and weight in paddles can make. I am petite and weigh about 125 lbs. so using this paddle makes kayaking much more enjoyable since I don't exert as much energy and can be out paddling for longer periods of time. In fact I can keep up with my husband and out-paddle him in some instances. I'm a low angle paddler and ordered the 230 cm size which works out really well as I have a kayak that has a wider cockpit. This paddle is just as advertised..."Solid in the water and light in the hand."
I paddle a 17' sea kayak on large lakes and class 1 rivers around central TN and this was my first paddle. I chose it because it was light, adjustable and had a smaller blade size to minimize fatigue or strain as I developed paddling strength. I'm impressed with how firmly the TLC locks the shafts together; I was afraid it might wobble at the joint but it's rock solid. The shaft is plenty strong enough for paddle float re-entrys, and I've grounded the blade many, many times on rocks and stumps in shallow waters, and going down the lower two sections of the Ocoee River in Eastern TN.
There are lighter paddles out there for a lot more money but this was a good balance of lightweight and reasonable cost. Since I'm a beginner paddler, I wanted to be able to enjoy paddling and after some research, reviews stated that weight does matter. Deciding on this one was a good choice to use with Emotion Spitfire. For low angle paddling, this fits the bill.
