What is this, the hottest new paddle out there for OC?

Jimmy has been busy changing the paradigm with this new design. Feedback from the ones out there has been extremely positive. I have been testing my demo with good results, definitely plenty of "bite" instantly at the catch with plenty of load for a 72sq" blade. It is very light and easy to change sides with and has a short learning curve. I have not surfed with it yet so I have no experience relating to that.

QB recommends going 2" smaller than your normal length.

The Stingray is a revolutionary new shape that will change the paddling world as we know it. The blade is only 10 inches long (25cm) which is half the length of most traditional blades, the reduced blade length reduces the catch and exit time by 100% as it takes half the time. The reduced blade length allows the center of area of the blade to be just 3.5" from the tip of the blade giving it a more distinct snappy catch and release.

This blade has a thin foiled shape that at 12 degree angle to the shaft is designed to have some "winged" effect as you drive it into the water making the blade literally want to go forward as you make the catch giving you extra length on the power phase of the stroke. What is unique about this thin foiled shape is that it performs a similar effect in reverse as the blade starts to exit from the water it wants to thrust forward slightly and efficiently all of the way to the exit.

To maximize the "winged" foil effect of the blade, we developed a special unique all carbon shaft that is tapered on both ends, providing minimal drag below the pulling hand and having a little more flex at the top hand by the handle, while having a slight oval shape where you hold it with the bottom hand.

We created a very comfortable hollow carbon palm grip that comes standard on the Stingray, or you can custom request our carbon T-handle if you prefer.

We believe based on Initial testing of the Stingray that it is so efficient it has increased boat traveling speeds by 1-2%.
