Our Most Popular Paddle Lineup

Sting Ray blade shape and size are ideal for low-angle, relaxed paddling strokes, sea kayakers and the pack and solo canoe paddler.

Narrower, with slightly less surface area than high-angle blades, the Sting Ray is designed with efficiency and ease in mind. Our best-selling model!

Sting Ray family best suits kayakers who:

  • Paddle long-distance trips, including sea kayakers
  • Prefer relaxed, general flatwater paddling
  • Solo and pack canoe

Manta Ray blade shape and size are ideal for high-angle, aggressive kayakers, packrafters, racers or anyone looking to move lots of water, fast.

Shorter and wider than low-angle paddles, the Manta Ray blades provide more speed and power with a design that catches water, propelling your kayak forward, faster - no matter the load.

Manta Ray Family best suits kayakers who:

  • Need to navigate faster or tighter paddling conditions
  • Regularly weigh down the kayak with gear, like packrafters
  • Like to paddle in surf and other unpredictable conditions
