SHAFT ONLY–you need a blade and handle for a complete paddle. xTuf Unidirectional Carbon Fiber shaft 63" long.
The xTuf Uni Carbon shaft is made from impact-resistant unidirectional carbon fiber. Unidirectional fibers are wound on a bias, providing stiffness, torsional strength, and vibration damping. This is a great shaft for coupling with our larger blades since it reduces the catch shock and stores energy for launching you into waves and swells. The xTuf shafts have a different feel than the Elite shafts, due to the uni-directional carbon, but the flex would be about a 70 Flex if compared to the Elite shafts. It tapers from 1" at the handle end to 1.25" at the blade end. The first 6 inches of the handle end are not tapered to permit shortening the shaft without changing diameter. After 6" the shaft tapers .002" per inch of length. If you trim your shaft more than 10" you may want to order a "fat" handle (special order only). The blade end is reinforced with an extra layer of carbon fiber but can be trimmed 2" without compromising the reinforcement. SHAFT ONLY–you need a blade and handle for a complete paddle.
