The Aqua-Bound Manta Ray Carbon kayak paddle is one of our favorite all purpose packrafting paddles, offering an ideal combination of weight, performance, and affordability. The Manta Ray Carbon features a lightweight carbon fiber blade providing extra strength and stiffness, a pure carbon shaft for extra comfort on long days on the water, and Aqua-Bound’s Posi-Lok ferrule which has a full range of feathering angles with secure and easy to adjust dual-button release. There is no better value in a high quality carbon paddle on the market.
Note: All of our Aqua-Bound paddles should be taken apart to dry before storage to prevent binding of the nylon ferrules with the shafts. The ferrules are designed with ridges to be lightly sanded if the fit becomes too tight.
