The blade shape is the main difference you’ll notice between high and low-angle paddles. High angle paddle blades are designed to pull through the water with strength, giving you speed and power.

They’re also ideal for kayak anglers carrying a lot of weight in gear. The beefier blades pack a beefier stroke. You’ll get to your favorites spots quicker and easier.

Aqua-Bound’s high-angle kayak paddles range from our top-of-the-line carbon models to our ultra-affordable Manta Ray Aluminum. Here’s a look at each one:
