Club Cargon 205-215 length when apart

7 months 5 days ago #35743 by Tobarus
Hi everyone,

Would anyone out here be able to tell me the individual length of the mid wing 205-215 paddles (club carbon) when taken apart?
Trying to figure out if they'd fit in a large suitcase for travel..

Thanks!

1171 mm. Epic club carbon 205-215 small mid. That's the longer piece.

For reference, my 210-220cm paddle measures
1097mm shorter piece
1205mm longer piece
2111mm OAL, minimum

the 205cm longer piece of the 205 appears to be about 38mm shorter

Currently - Swordfish S in Southern California's ocean waters

It may depend on who assembled the paddle, and how it was shortened.
I have two paddles, both are 212-222 cm long, not Epic. One of them has two parts of equal length (about 120 cm), so the overlapping parts are always centered but the lock is not. The other paddle is made, so the innermost part is 20-25 cm longer than the other (the length of the inside section), so the lock comes closer to the center.
I think I prefer a compromise, to get an even distribution of both weight and stiffness.

Maybe this is a silly question, but can the blades be easily taken off when on the road/travelling at all?  Specifically for the Epic models...

If the blades are glued to the shaft with epoxy... you're screwed.
You could ask if you can buy the paddle with the blades not assembled to the 2 pieces shaft. When you need to paddle you could put them in place with hot melt glue, and you would just have to use some heat to take them appart. That said, I woudn't do it...

SRS sells a 5 pieces wing paddle that could be what you are after.

edit, also found this one. 4 pieces Epic paddle sold by Gearzone. May be worth asking your local Epic dealer about it.
