 The BLUE, YELLOW, and ORANGE blades found in our Recreational paddles are made from a fiberglass reinforced, high temperature nylon material. The blades are extremely durable, providing paddlers with a quality entry-level paddle that will last for years! These blades are only available on our recreational paddles with aluminum shafting.

The white blades: These are made using a fiberglass reinforced polythalamide material. What does this mean? Tough blades don't wear down, edges don't get ragged. The white blades come with either AMT aluminum or fiberglass shafting.

The black blades: These are made using the same polythalamide material as that found in the white blades, only this time it is reinforced with carbon fibers. What does this mean? As with the white blades - tough, but also a little stiffer and lighter. The black blades come with only with carbon shafting.
