Maybe… but FUNCTIONAL. You’re not going for sexy anyway right? The Kevlar/ Carbon blade looks like a 70′s sport coat. The carbon shaft has a rough look and feel. Why would we make something so UGLY?
Kevlar creates a stiff impact resistant blade the will hold up to a life of abuse. And ….Why would anyone make a slick polished shaft? Paddles get wet…. Right? Doesn’t a shaft with texture make more sense? What are your thoughts?
