The Backwater Assassin Carbon Fiber Hybrid Paddle is the full-size version of its legendary predecessor, the Assault Hand Paddle. Weighing right at 38 ounces and 42 ounces, respectively, paddle design and technology is again moving forward! The Assassin is available in 2 different adjustable lengths: 230-240cm (90.5-94.5in) & 250-260cm (98.5-102.5). The Assassin kayak paddles not only display the patented ìhook and teethî blade design and raised graphics package, they also provide unsurpassed performance and versatility. The hook is great for grabbing a line in the water, pulling in decoys, pulling you closer to the dock, or making a tree limb easier to reach. The oversized blade helps to pull a lot of water when paddling and makes turning even easier. The Assassin is designed for form as well as function. The unique blade design allows kayakers more freedom, more comfort and more confidence to challenge themselves. The Assassin was designed for both high angle and low angle paddlers. The shaft is made of a carbon hybrid material to help reduce the overall weight and the oversized ABS injected nylon blade is hard enough to push off on any surface and not crack or flex. Is your lure stuck in a tree? No problem, just grab the branch. Too close to the rocks or oyster shells? No problem, just give a push.
