    You're not into leisurely “laahdeedaah” paddling—your style is fast and powerful for athletic touring, paddle workouts, or adventure racing, and you're looking for a lightweight, two-piece paddle. Grab the Aqua-Bound MantaRay Fiberglass Paddle. The MantaRay Fiberglass Paddle puts 34.7 ounces (for the 220cm) of arm-engine power in your hands for a cost that won't break the bank. The blade's beefy construction and cross-sectional shape mean you get instant power for each stroke, and the two-piece design makes it easy to store this paddle inside your kayak or truck for transportation.

    Aquabound Manta

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I own several of these paddles, two Mantas and one Stingray. For the money, they are a quality paddle. They hold up well and give me the push I want.

    Great Paddle

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    We have loved this paddle so much I have come back for a second. Great for recreational paddling and very durable. We use this for our two 28 inch kayaks in the creek and harbor and have found that it is light weight, easy to use, and versatile for a variety of size people ( in 230cm). The first paddle has been used for years and it is still doing well. Simply decided to finally upgrade the older plastic paddle for the second boat to a lighter and easier to use version.

    Nice paddle

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have the 230 cm paddle for my 126 wide kayak. I am 5'8. My 11 and 12 year old boys use the 210 cm. We've had a lot of fun using them on calm rivers and ponds. We can get them going fast and they have held up well to the expected abuse from a couple of young kids. It also has a nice grip and is lightweight. Great for the price.

    New to kayaking... seems good.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like this paddle. It's lightweight, and looks good. I don't think it is indexed for right or left handed people, but it does seem like there is a particular way to hold it to be comfortable... I think the shaft ovals more at one part. I will say that I think I bought too short of a paddle. I have an Ocean Kayak Frenzy (sit on top) and based the size on a Werner guide for high angle paddlers. I bought a 220cm, but I think 225 would be better for the sit on top 'yak. Oh, and I'm 5'11" if it helps.

    Great Paddle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had this paddle for quite a while now, and it has moved to my back up. I do quite a bit of sea kayaking, and have worked as a guide for several years. This paddle has a pretty fat blade and provides plenty of power. For its price, it is pretty lightweight, and definitely durable. The two piece makes it nice- it is now my extra paddle and stays strapped under the bungees on the back of my kayak. The drip rings stay where they are put, the paddle has an ovalized shaft towards the enter for better grippage. Great paddle.

    Transition: Aluminum Shaft to Fiberglass

      First, my experience with BackCountry has been exceptional. The price of the paddle was the best I could find anywhere and the product was received very quickly.

      Regarding this paddle - being a strong paddler, I had no idea that my inexpensive, aluminum shaft was keeping me from a better kayaking experience. The Aqua-Bound MantaRay fiberglass has made paddling my sit-on-top a much better experience. Lighter, less blade flex, and the comfort of the fiberglass (less heat/cold transfer) has made it so I am not whipped after six hours (every Sunday) on the water.
      Good stuff !

      Love it

        had mine for 3 years and love being able to make my yak race through flat water. One day I injured myself so my wife decided to try out my paddle. An hour later I was informed that she wanted one as a Mother's day present.....

        Love it
        Unanswered Question

        I just got mine. Other Aqua-bounds I've seen have the ovalized shaft The grip on this one is not. Did I get a reject or something, or did they change the design?

        Does this paddle have an ovalized grip?

        Does this paddle have an ovalized grip?

        The grip is definitely ovalized- Where your hands grab the paddle, if you are holding the blades up and down when not feathered, the grip narrows from top to bottom and widens from front to back. Definitely a nice feature. If you loose your grip, or let go for any reason, the ovalized helps you to find proper grip while keeping your eye on the wave about to wreck your day! It also provides a more natural grip than a round paddle shaft.
