The Plastic Fantastic paddle is our go to tough and durable canoe paddle. Loved by commercial users and families alike this paddle represents great value for money and superb durability.
It comes with a comfy plastic T grip, a strong alloy shaft and a super tough nylon reinforced blade which makes for an easy to use maintenance free paddle. Available in 140, 150 and 160cm lengths. The blade measures 53cm long by 20cm wide and has a surface area of 848 square cm. Paddle weight is approx 750g.
If you need to work out paddle sizes, as always there’s more than one way skin an egg.
The simplest way is to measure from the middle of your ‘Chipple’ region to the floor. (Chin to Nipples is your Chipple region) and if you have a paddle of about this size you should be fine!
The somewhat more refined way of measuring for your paddle is as follows.
Kneel down on one knee ensuring both knees are at 90 degrees, just like in the picture,
although you don’t have to have a dog, but they can help. Hold a pole/brush vertically with your hand, again like in the picture with your arm roughly horizontal. Then measure form the top edge of your closed hand to the floor. Take this measurement and then select the paddle with the shaft length that is closest to your measurement. This then gives you the Paddle Length you need for that particular design of paddle.
As always if you have any questions, drop us a mail or give us a call.
