Aqua-Bound Paddles Sting Ray Hybrid Kayak Paddle Review
The Sting Ray Hybrid kayak paddle successfully combines the benefits of lightweight carbon with the reliability of fiberglass to produce one of the best-selling kayak paddles in the industry.
The Sting Ray Hybrid features a carbon shaft with mid-sized blades (91 sq. inches) constructed from abXII resin reinforced with fiberglass. The efficient blade shape reduces fatigue and joint stress making it easier to manage long distance outings.
At 30.5 oz., the Sting Ray Hybrid kayak paddle is heavier than the Sting 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 Sting Ray Hybrid is stocked exclusively with the small shaft and Posi-Lok ferrule as it’s far superior to the snap-button system.
