Eddyline Kayak Paddles (formerly Swift) are a distinctive blend of power, lightness, and strength developed and refined over 45 years. These paddles possess a radiant translucence in sunlight that is highly visible and exceptionally beautiful. Eddyline blades, available in seven distinct designs, are powerful but forgiving with quick acceleration, a flutter free stroke, and smooth follow through. The composite blades come in jewel tone translucent colors, stunning custom graphic inlays, and carbon fiber. All Eddyline paddles feature 2 piece carbon shafts for added strength and stiffness and the grip range has a slight oval shape for comfort and indexing. We use straight shafts only, which provide maximum versatility for all paddling conditions and styles. Eddyline paddles are some of the lightest paddles on the market weighing in at 24 – 33 oz. depending on length and blade size. Blade weight is a mere 6.5 – 8oz. (depending on size) for an incredibly low swing weight!
