Why We Like The Aqua Bound Manta Ray Hybrid 2-Piece Posi-Lok Paddle

The Aqua Bound Manta Ray Hybrid Posi-Lok Paddle is a good paddle for high-angle horsepower and heavier boats. It features Aqua Bound's largest paddle blade, so that extra surface area displaces more water for more speed, more power, and more aggressive maneuvering. As part of Aqua Bound's touring lineup, however, the Manta Ray Hybrid features a lightweight carbon shaft with fiberglass-reinforced nylon blades for a light yet strong build that channels our energy into propelling and controlling our boat, not wielding a cumbersome paddle. The Posi-Lok ferrule also offers easy adjustments to offset our blades in 15-degree increments to respond to changing wind and water conditions. That adds up to a premium paddle with plenty of power for our recreational or touring kayaks.


  • Powerful paddle that favors high-angle paddlers
  • 100% carbon shaft is lightweight to reduce fatigue on longer trips
  • Fiberglass-reinforced nylon blades for weight-savings and strength
  • Round shaft is ovalized at hands for more comfort and control
  • Posi-Lok ferrule is the gold standard in paddle sports
  • Carbon ferrule insert is big upgrade over plastic or glass inserts
  • Proudly built in Osceola, Wisconsin

The standard In kayak paddles.

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 9"

First I need to say Thank you backcountry for your awesome prices and fast shipping. This is my 2nd aqua bound paddle. The first being the sting ray with the posi lok. Which also is absolutely great. I got into kayak fishing on a sit on top Vive yellowfin 120 and first brought the Carlisle magic angler to go with it. And it was just bad. Loose connection and heavy as all get out. It made me hate my new kayak and immediately started to try and get rid of it. My wife convinced me to get another aqua bound paddle and try it again. I am so glad she did. The manta ray with posi lok might not have serrated teeth or a hook getter on the blade. But ot more than makes up for it in performance. They are so light the posi lock makes it feel as close to a one piece as I could ever hope for.
