    Details

    Barbells are for the gym.

    You love to paddle—morning outings, day trips, weeklong adventures—but you’d rather not have a paddle that feels like a barbell after twenty minutes of paddling. Aqua-Bound made the Sting Ray Carbon 2-Piece Paddle with a carbon shaft and carbon blades for a lightweight feel hour after hour.
    • Dihedral means the blade angles so that water flows easily off the blade during your forward strokes, which minimizes flutter
    • Cross-sectional shape provides strong bite with each stroke and means you can link strokes smoothly
    • Two-piece design makes the Sting Ray travel-friendly
    • Item #AQB0009

They're short on weight but not quality, as Aqua-Bound is known worldwide for their ability to injection-mold the highest quality, most durable blades. Lightweight, durable, smart, and affordable... Meet the Sting Ray series from Aqua-Bound! A product of Osceola, Wisconsin, USA.

    Aqua-Bound Sting Ray 2-Pce Carbon Paddle

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I LOVE this paddle!! It is very light and versatile with the ability to offset for feathering. In paddling a lake, I found it to be strong and reliable during braces and even paddling up to speed in a 17' Seaward Navigator. For the price, this paddle is a great deal!

    aquabound Sting Ray 2- Piece Carb paddle

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Very nice light weight paddle for the price! Make sure to get the specs on what length to get based on both your height AND the width of your kayak! We ordered a 220 and a 230 and had to exchange the 220 for a 240 because we have an inflatable kayak which is pretty wide! Back Country was GREAT and exchanged it with no hassle and they paid the shipping! Great company to do business with.

    Ok paddle

      Nice Carbon fiber paddle, lightweight, strong, decent blade shape. AquaBound has been revamping their product line over the years and the longer shaped touring blades are now in the $250 price range. This paddle has a somewhat shorter blade style and falls along the upscale rec/touring part of the spectrum. It's a good paddle, and the oval shaped grip area is a newer feature that works well. Overall I wouldn't pay more than $150 for this paddle (6/12) but if you find it at that price it's a good buy.

      I'm impressed

        My paddling speed for the same effort expended is 5% faster with the Sting Ray all carbon paddle. I've been paddling the same 5 mile route on a lake 3 times a week for 5 years and without exerting any extra effort I cut my best time by 5%. This paddle for $144 (after a 20% sales promotion discount) is light, comfortable, and sturdy.

        Thank you Back Country

          Your service is great. I received the paddle in perfect condition and just when you said it would arrive. I have really enjoyed the light weight as I can paddle all day without fatigue. It comes apart really easily and then is just as easy to re-assemble. I think your company is terrific and I've referred you to many of my friends.
          Thank you!!

          love it

            Great paddle, after breaking my Hobie paddle, I bought this one from Backcountry. It came quickly. It's strong and light, it comes apart easily and I would get it again in a flash. Paddling really is easier with a light strong paddle.

            Many factors influence paddle length: touring/whitewater, height, boat width and paddling style (high angle or low angle). There is a great set of easy charts at this site:
