SmartStroke Final Design

The final design for the paddle consists of a modular design, with a straight shaft, 10° bent blade, and an offset, palm grip handle. The paddle is 6 plies thick, 19.2 oz, and made almost entirely of carbon fiber. A foam core is placed inside the shaft for added structure without increasing the weight, and the modular aspect has been simplified by the addition of screw-in aluminum plugs inside the shaft and on the surface of the handle and blade. With the addition of smart technology to the paddle including a GPS tracking system, it is time for you to make sure every stroke is a SmartStroke.
