Just because the Kialoa Insanity Carbon Adjustable Paddle has an easy length adjustment system doesn't mean it's flimsy, heavy, or clunky. The full Fibrlite construction blends carbon fiber and polypropylene resin, which gives the Insanity a killer blend of weight, durability, and stiffness, so it'll work as well as any other non adjustable paddle you'll find. Kialoa's Carbon Ergo T grip has a reliable and simple Leverlock length adjustment system that lets you use the Insanity at two different lengths 70 and 86 inches, so it can work for paddlers of different heights, and a round shaft that sits comfortably in the hand. A resin band at the tip of the blade adds durability, while the ten degree bend helps generate power and extend your stroke. The Insanity measures in at a svelte 18 ounces, too, so your shoulders won't get tired out from lugging your paddle around although they might be a bit worn out after you spend the day exploring.
