Everyone knows a spoon is better for displacing liquid than a knife, so Carlisle gave the blade of the Magic Plus Fiberglass Paddle an efficient, slightly spooned shape. This provides added leverage for powerful strokes and performance. The lightweight fiberglass straight shaft flexes so it's forgiving to your arms, and its center button allows for 60-degree feathering.

  • Lightweight fiberglass straight shaft flexes to absorb impact so it's easy on the arms for those enduring paddles
  • Strong, light fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene blade curves slightly like a spoon for added leverage and powerful paddling

One of my first paddles was the Magic, which has an aluminum shaft. I saw the Magic Plus on sale, ordered one, and we definitely prefer the fiberglass shaft for its lighter weight and good balance. The larger blade rewards aggressive, high-angle paddling with brisk forward momentum. We especially like the larger blade of this paddle in rougher water (and even wave-surfing) when fast corrections are necessary. We liked this paddle so much that I purchased another. So now we have three Carlisle brand paddles which are all pretty decent. I give this four stars only because I also have a carbon low-angle paddle which I use in perfectly calm water, and know there are better paddles, but they cost considerably more.

Great value paddle

I just received this paddle and one side of the paddle has an area on the shaft that is built up and "ovaled." The other side of the paddle has a uniform round shaft. Was I sent two different style halves?

Hey Donkeydong,

Everything you were sent is correct. The asymmetrical shaft shape is designed for a more efficient stroke. One hand the shaft is able to rotate freely in your palm while the other hand has a firmer grip to hold the paddle in a correct orientation. It's science, roll with it.

Lightweight and Comfortable.

The fiberglass shaft is comfortable with a nice grip diameter. Not as flexible as I thought they were going to be. A little on the stiff side, however gives you a great response. I am a recreational kayaker and use this mostly on lakes and it provides all day comfort. Awesome quality and price for what you get.

Awesome picture Christopher !!!
