Banjo paddle blades are an asymmetrical shape, and is a great paddle, especially in the surf.
Banjo paddles are made on a 29mm aluminium or fibreglass shaft, and are available as either a 1 piece or 2 piece (take-apart) paddles.
Structural aluminium is used for maximum strength, and has a clear anodised coating to prevent the paddler’s hands turning black.
All of the Banjo paddles are “double plugged” to inhibit water entering the paddle shaft. This ensures that the paddles will float if dropped into the water.
As a double paddle, the blades are riveted with 3/16″ rivets onto the shaft. The blades are feathered to an angle of around 60 degrees. Drip rings are fitted to each end, to minimise water running down the shaft and onto your hands.
You can choose to upgrade your double Banjo paddle from a bare aluminium shaft by adding “heatshrink and grip”. Also, you can get a 2 piece aluminium or a 2 piece fibreglass shaft.
