Paddling.net customer review
I purchased the Aquabound Swell in carbon a little over 6 months ago and it is hands down the best paddle I have used. Love the ability to adjust to different lengths and feathering on the fly. Light weight, easy to paddle all day, almost effortless. Usually paddle in the gulf or on river trips here in Florida, use it to brace getting in and out of kayak. I have lent it to several friends and they love everything about it. Worth every penny as far as I am concerned. My wife has started kayaking and uses it since she is left handed and it feathers for Left handed paddlers, 10 of 10 for me.
I upgraded to the Carbon paddle and love it. Very well made and super light. I paddled 4 hours in Long Island Sound and the weight of the paddle kept me from getting fatigued. I really like the oval shape of the shaft as well.
Swell FG T-700 carbon shaft 230 cm
Recently purchased a Swell FG T-700 with carbon shaft 230 cm in length.
Bought this paddle because i wanted a top quality low angle touring paddle. Very light design, and the shaft is truly great quality. Purchased the three position snap button ferrule system to save weight. The ferrule had some play in it right out of the box. More play than I would like in a high end paddle. No play would be what I would expect. Aquabound would return if I paid freight, not practicle for me to spend another $ 40.00 to ship the product back.
The blade design I feel does not have enough bite
for a touring paddle. I also have a stingray with carbon shaft and ABX blades which I like much better.
I would not have bought this paddle if I had the opportunity to try it first. The cheaper and slightly heavier EagleRay carbon would likely have been a better choice. :(
Does this have Telescoping Ferrule?
It is the 3 hole snap button ferrule version. 0 & 60 RHC or LHC
