Aqua-Bound Paddles Eagle Ray Hybrid Kayak Paddle Review
The Eagle Ray Hybrid kayak paddle successfully combines lightweight with durability and stiffness to offer paddlers the best of both worlds. A great choice for touring with heavy loads or when paddling in adverse conditions.
The Eagle Ray Hybrid features a light carbon shaft with long and slim blades (98 sq. inches) constructed from tough abXII resin reinforced with fiberglass. The larger blade shape provides added pull with each stroke giving you more power when it’s needed most, and the surface area is more effective for larger paddlers when it comes to bracing.
At 32.5 oz., the Eagle Ray Hybrid is heavier than the Eagle Ray Carbon model, but it still retains a comfortable swing weight for low-angle paddlers. The dihedral spine in the blades increase stiffness to reduce flutter and maximize efficiency with each stroke.
The shaft is available with either the standard 3-hole, snap-button ferrule (0° to 60° left and right feathering angles) or the advanced Posi-Lok system. The Posi-Lok is a composite, corrosion-resistant ferrule that clicks into position firmly with dual-button release and infinite feathering options. The shaft is also offered with regular or small shaft diameters and comes in five different lengths (210cm, 220cm, 230cm, 240cm, 250cm).
Note: The Eagle Ray Hybrid is stocked exclusively with the Posi-Lok ferrule as it’s far superior to the snap-button system. Both regular and small shafts are available in-store.
