Brief Description

The Manta Ray is a high end kayak fishing paddle for the budget minded kayak angler. The Manta Ray has the largest of Aqua-Bound's touring blades, and it has a modern style (not "low angle") sea kayak touring paddle blade. The overall weight of is lighter than most all fiberglass paddles, and yet the injection molded plastic blades are much tougher and more durable than glass blades. The size of the Manta Ray's blade is perfect for most people from 135 - 225lbs. With its all-carbon shaft and large, abXII fiberglass-reinforced blades, the Manta Ray Hybrid has a low swing weight and provides both comfort and power at a great price point.

Detailed Description

In general, short, wide blades like the Manta Ray's are more forgiving (less prone to diving) than long, narrow blades (i.e. as on low angle paddles). This makes paddles like the Manta Ray easier to use when learning draws, sculling and other combination strokes such as for leaned turns, and such paddles are especially popular with advanced paddlers because the rougher the conditions you paddle in, the more you need to use strokes where short wide blades shine. When you are trying to spin your kayak around between wave crests in surf or high winds, you can really feel the difference that a forgiving blade makes. 

The Manta Ray is available 2-piece Hybrid model with Posi-lock ferrule.  The Posi-Lok® ferrule system which clicks into position firmly and securely. The Posi-Lok® features strong, corrosion-free composite construction, convenient dual-button release, and infinite feathering angles.The lighter a paddle, the less fatiguing it is to use. The Hybrid Manta Ray is a great first paddle or spare paddle.
