New paddle is lighter in color too.
As soon as I put it together & picked it up, I went WOW!
WOW — indeed.
It was superlight. It was featherweight. Had just the ideal heft. It just felt so, so RIGHT.
This is another outright winner from the great folks at Atoll.
The blade is very different to the Aluminum Alloy one I had. You should be able to tell it from the pictures.
I have been told by my friends at Atoll that: “it is more rigid in the water so you’re actually going to faster on the water. It has more ‘bite’ in the water.”
I can see that it would attack the water at a different angle to my prior blades. I am thrilled.
Can’t wait to try it out.
It being so much lighter should make a HUGE difference.
Thank YOU, Atoll. You have done all of us proud, again.
You can see I am HUGE FAN of Atoll Board’s. The BEST in the business.
