Carbon - Light weight and performance oriented, these shafts come in both fixed and adjustable options. If you’re looking to save on weight and you’ve already decided you want to invest in a carbon shaft, a fixed paddle is a great option as you don’t have the added weight of an adjustable paddle.

Fiberglass - Incredibly versatile and super light-weight, fiberglass is an excellent option if you’re looking for a high performance paddle at a lower price point.

Aluminum - Almost always found in adjustable shafts, aluminium is often a heavier material, and is a more economical option when it comes to paddle shafts.

Carbon/Fiberglass - The shaft is constructed with a carbon/fiberglass blend, making this option light-weight and cost effective.

Carbon Blend - Carbon blend shafts are carbon, typically blended with a 2nd material such as nylon.
