Reduced diameter paddle shafts

1 year 8 months ago #36516 by qmento
Are there paddle manufactures that make wing paddles with "skinny" shafts besides Epic? Reduced diameter shafts are a popular option in the sup world with companies like Naish, Starboard, and Black Project making them. I love my Epic Mid Wing with the small round shaft, but I'd like to see if there's others to try.

Think paddles (www.thinkkayak.com.au/paddles/) also comes with skinny shafts. Apparently even slightly skinnier than Epic's (25.4 mm vs. 25.5 mm) :-)

Braca's most flexible shaft comes in a 28 mm diameter.  I have not tried it.  

I know Lendal also carries reduced diameter shafts, but they don't have a true wing blade.

Nelo 550L, Streuer Fejna, Nelo Viper 55

Braca XI 705 EL blade, 17K shaft
Braca XI 675 marathon blade, 19K shaft
Braca IV 670 soft blade, 19K shaft
