2 piece adjustable carbon shaft paddle with teardrop blade
(5 customer reviews)

£165.00

A great value professional quality paddle board paddle, super light, super strong, just the right amount of flex with a choice of a carbon fibre or bamboo veneer blade and two blade sizes.

The precision-engineered teardrop blade with a gentle dihedral makes this a good generalist paddle, or specialist surf SUP paddle.

Adjustable from 170 -220cm.

Comes with a free high quality padded paddlebag worth £25.

Look far and wide, and you will still not find a paddle of this quality at this price.

Description

  • 100% 3k carbon fibre shaft and handle.
  • Choice of four precision engineered carbon blades
  • ~580 grams.
  • Perma-grip anti twist clasp system = easy length adjustment + perfect blade/handle alignment
  • Ergo Plus Handle =  100% carbon to minimise weight, designed for comfort, grip, power transfer and low profile. 

 

Comes with free McConks protective paddlebag.  The paddlebag is adjustable length and fits both two piece and one piece paddles.

Common to all top quality paddles, the whole assembly floats so no risk of it being lost at the bottom of the deep blue!

You will not find a better, lighter or more rigid adjustable paddle at this price!

Who should buy a two piece adjustable SUP paddle?

The benefit: Two piece paddles are a good compromise for paddlers who want the benefit of a higher performance shaft with more consistent flex, but who want to be able to change the paddle length for different width boards, or different paddle environments.

The downside: Slightly heavier than one piece/rigid SUP paddles – two piece paddles do not fit into your inflatable SUP bag – the shortest they shrink to is around 170cm. Short enough to fit into most cars, but not necessarily without making it a little awkward inside!

5 reviews for 2 piece adjustable carbon shaft paddle with teardrop blade

  1. James clinton

    Excellent service, superb paddle, exactly as described, cut to size, nice light paddle, excellent value for money! Local company, would highly recommend, 10/10!

  2. Andy Carter (verified owner)

    Nice paddle, very light with just enough flex. Used it for both short and long paddles on open and inland water, the light weight makes it less fatiguing for longer trips. I’d buy one again at this price if I lost this one!

  3. James Buckle (verified owner)

    Really happy with my paddle, very light and stiff and exactly the sort of performance that I expected after reading the various blade style choice literature provided. A quick chat by email was super helpful to let me hit the buy button, and they were helpful and quick. Delivered quickly and well protected – very happy.
    In use, the paddle is strong and has survived a few cases of me falling/overbalancing on rocks without chipping or scratching easily.

  4. Duncan Jack (verified owner)

    Got a bamboo one and a full carbon one. I like the blade shape but not terribly impressed with the adjustment mechanism. Get the tension just right, not so tight that you strain the clip but not so slack that the handle moves in the shaft and it’s always too loose the next time you come to use it. So have had to remember to include a spare Allen key with my SUP kit.

    So far so good. The paddle works as it should and the bag is nice to have. I was surprised there was no bubble-wrap or similar, it just arrived in its bag… good for the environment I suppose, but potential for damage by courier.

      Thanks Michael
      We take full responsibility of any damage caused by couriers, and this is better for the environment. However, if it results in products damaged beyond repair, that is obviously bad for the environment. We’re currently monitoring the trial, and will revert to recyclable, recycled packaging if it turns out that products do get damaged
      Best wishes
      Team McConks

Q & A

What benefits/downsides are there to a bamboo veneer blade over 100% carbon? Sam asked on July 30, 2023

Hi Sam
Thanks for your message. The bamboo blade is ~30g heavier, and slightly less resilient. If you chip it, water ingress can make the bamboo veneer swell and cause further damage. Edge protection resolves this risk, as with any carbon type paddle
Hope that helps
Andy
