The Axel II Hybrid is a versatile outrigger paddle; its blade size makes this paddle a great choice for the paddler that races both on a team and on their own boats. This is the paddle that will do it all. The Axle has an ergonomic T-grip, and a hand shaped oval tapered wood shaft that is triple laminated to provide great strength and durability for years of racing. The blade is constructed with biaxial carbon fiber and a foam core to keep it strong and light. The tapered tip and dihedral face will give you clean catches and stability through the water.
