The Carlisle Guide Paddle is a economical solution to upgrading from a standard raft paddle for steering a raft. This paddle has a wider surface area than a paddle intended for crew paddling and makes maneuvering strokes more effective. A coated aluminum shaft provides a durable grip and the heavy-duty reinforced polyethylene blade is ready to go to battle with every rock that comes its way!
Pro Tip: The Carlisle Guide Paddle isn't just for penny-pinchers! If you are guiding a high water run or a run with a high degree of difficulty or probability that you will flip, having this paddle as a backup to your daily guide stick is a good choice to bring along instead.
