Simple and symmetrical design, sturdy and durable materials.

Take the two pieces of the Carlisle Standard Kayak Paddle out of your trunk, slide them into the hull of your kayak, and carry your craft to the shore. Then connect this two-piece paddle using the stainless button on the shaft. High-impact polypropylene and full-blade reinforcements add durability to the symmetrical blades so you won’t have to worry about rock hits.

Perfect backup

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a really solid, durable paddle that you don't have to worry about accidentally dinging against a rock and seeing the shaft or paddle break. It's heavy and clunky looking, but if you just lost your main paddle and are sitting in the middle of the lake, you're not going to care how it looks while it's getting you back to shore without swimming. I've kept this as a reserve (or extra for a friend) paddle for a while now and will always recommend this to people who are looking for a backup. It's cheap yet reliable. Nothing fancy but gets ya from A to B.


My back up paddle

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This was the first paddle design I used when I got into kayaking. It's a very solid design, and is excellent for making technical strokes it allows you to direct a lot of water with each stroke of the paddle. This for me was ultimately a draw back, though likely no fault of the paddle. I have lower spine damage and was dealing with a great deal of fatigue, even with proper form it seemed that after long days on the river I was dealing with a good deal of back pain afterwards. I've since been using a more contoured paddle the Bending Branches Whisper and it's greatly improved my own stamina. The paddle itself remains in the repertoire, and is in the kayak as a back up on longer trips. When the paddle first arrived I did have to make a quick modification with my dremel as the hole and stainless steal button which connect the two sections of paddle did not align. Again in all a fine paddle, certainly does what you would expect it to do, and it is a fine budget option.

Good second paddle for friends to use

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Bought this for friends to use on my second kayak. They have no complaints although it's easy to see it's a 100% basic paddle. It you're looking for something that looks nicer, look elsewhere. But if you want something that works perfectly fine for what it's designed for, this is your paddle.


Great paddle for the price!

    The 90 inch size is too small for standard IK's.



      I have used these paddles for over15 years with hardley a problem. I have IKed thousands of miles of class 3-4+ whitewater, many of which were multi-day wilderness trips with large loads. While heavier than most, I have never had one break. I have seen dozens of other paddles break during that same time, from cheapos to carbon fiber spendy paddles.
      A little extra weight is worth it to me.

      How do I know what length of paddle is...

      How do I know what length of paddle is good for me? I am about 5'4.

      220 cm would be a good starting point maybe to 230 for a wide rec or sit on top.


      Good for a spare

        I bought this for a spare when doing the river in my duck. It appears to be very tough but it is very basic and heavy. The blades don't have as much power as the curved blades and the handle joint is a little sloppy. It does have two feather postions. The handle diameter is comfy. I would get it again as a spare but it would not be my first line paddle. Good value as a rental also.

        I used NRS's Paddle Fit Guide [] and came up with a recommended size of 90in for this paddle. I hope this helps!
