The key to long, peaceful days on the water lies in easy, low-angle paddling, which you can achieve with the two-piece Skagit CF IM Paddle and its adjustable shaft. Designed for long tours in flat rivers, lakes, and bays, this super-lightweight paddle allows a more casual style of low-angle paddling that is both comfortable and efficient.

  • Smart-View Adjustable Ferrule uses a low-profile button and internal gear system to shift the feather angle in 15-degree increments to match your paddle stroke
  • Nylon blades are reinforced with carbon to ensure durability, and easy paddling in rivers, lakes, and bays
  • Medium-surface-area blades feature a slight dihedral, or arching, shape to catch more water and yield a powerful stroke with a smooth release
  • Carbon blend shaft material is the lightest weight shaft available for long, multi-day archipelago tours
  • Straight shaft minimizes weight and allows easy hand arrangements for versatile paddling techniques
  • Mid-sized blade fits most kayakers' size and flatwater ambitions

Great paddle!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Very light paddle, nice shape, good grip. The drip guards do their job. I got a 235cm, but ended up needing a 240cm, despite the size chart putting me right at 235cm. I'm paddling a Wilderness System Tsunami 140 and am 6' tall. Overall a great paddle; would recommend.

Quality paddle

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Extremely well built paddle, and very light weight. The low profile button and ferrule system works very well. No slop at all in this two piece paddle, feels great. I did find that the catch was too light for me, and might be upgrading to a larger blade with more surface area. I did not find this to have a powerful stroke as described in it's specs, even though I am not a competitive paddler.

What is the difference between the Skagit...

What is the difference between the Skagit CF IM and the Tybee CF IM?

The major difference between the two is in the shape of the blades. Both have similar surface area, but the Skagit is designed for low-angle paddling (more about setting a smooth, steady cadence) while the Tybee is designed for high-angle paddling (shorter, choppier strokes that generate more power.)
