Stellar Pro Wing Full Carbon Fiber Adjustable Paddle

Stellar Pro-Wing 205cm-215cm = First Impressions.

The first trial of a new piece of equipment probably shouldn’t be a race. Well, that’s the way it worked at the 2019 HACK Race

9 miles of “Marshall, meet your new paddle” went surprisingly well. Comparing this to my old no-name no-longer produced wing there were a couple of characteristics that really stood out.

  • Weight = wonderfully light!
  • Shaft = the entire shaft is lightly sanded so it moves easily but when gripped allows a solid positive hold in your hands without slippage. Especially nice at the end of a race when tired.
  • Catch = in the water, Smoooooth! Once immersed it has an even solid feel during the power phase that I can only describe as Smoooooth! Come by to try one on the water and you’ll understand.
  • Cadence = after three miles I shortened the run in the water so I was applying power in a short pulse and beginning the exit phase of the stroke earlier so by the time the blade was mid-thigh it was already out and heading to the sky. This made for a quicker stroke and my gps indicated my pace quickened 30 seconds.
  • Ammenities = comes with a neoprene sleeve to cover over the ferrule lever to prevent any possibility of it snagging. Nice! Also comes in it’s own padded paddle bag. Also Nice!
