With the same buoyancy as the Hong Kong wooden paddles, it has all the feel of wood with the durability of modern composites. The smooth blade profile makes it silky smooth in the water. These paddles feature AFT - Advanced Foam Technology - blades using a unique polyurethane foam construction to produce a paddle which is tough but is also light and floaty.
AFT (Advanced Foam Technology)
blades are made using a unique polyurethane high-pressure structural foam construction. This produces a paddle which is tough, lightweight and floaty. The low density is similar to that of a wooden paddle and so can offer the paddler much the same feel but with durability that exceeds the best plastic blades.
One-Piece Alloy Straight Shaft
Ainsworth has been making alloy shafted paddles for over 45 years and slowly progressed to being able to process an aluminium alloy that surpasses all its competitors. This titanium enriched alloy is the same spec as used for aircraft construction, it offers the very best corrosion resistance of any aluminium alloy along with a very high tensile strength.
