As a double paddle, the blades are riveted with 3/16″ rivets onto the aluminium 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.
Powerblades are a “budget” paddle that is only available on an aluminium shaft. You can choose to upgrade your double Powerblade paddle from a bare aluminium shaft by adding “heatshrink and grip”. Also, you can get a 2 piece (push-button split) double paddle on the standard alloy shaft.
