With the 'Vario' joint, the paddle is variable in length and rotation. For constant use you can extend it to 6 cm for testing up to 10 cm. You do not need any tools, but is easly opened and close with your hands. When ordering a paddle please always indicate your desired paddle's shortest length!
The profiled blade, combined with a straight shaft guarantees good propulsion in all kinds of white water conditions. Whether you want pressure in white or blue water- with the Profile that is no problem, at all. The balanced but gripping propulsion will get you out of various situations. Pull- and Round- strokes develop such grip, you'll end up only needing half the strokes than usual. ´The paddle's strength is only outdone by its handling.
