Turbo King/ Turbo King XL
Best uses: moving fast downstream, hitting tight slots, being classy
Common lengths: 200-205
The Turbo King is designed for the paddler who likes to move fast downstream and look good while doing it. It’s rounded tip and tucked lower edge allow for a proper vertical stroke and it won’t hit the deck of your boat.
It comes in regular and XL depending on your preferred amount of torque. It is normally made with a forward offset powerface (3/8” set back from the centerline of the shaft) and has a dihedral that transitions to flat on the powerface.
The Virginia Gentleman
best uses: cruising, playboating, nature slalom
common lengths: 196-204
A smooth paddle for smooth paddlers. It can be a bifacial dihedral (centered on the shaft) or offset (3/8” behind the centerline). It’s roughly 13% smaller surface area compared to the regular Turbo King.
It features a tuck in the lower edge to give the paddle a better feel when feathering through the water and allows some creative strokes.
Shorter lengths are preferred for playboating and longer lengths for cruising and creeking.
The Original Gangster
Best uses: downriver racing, paddling big boats in big water
Common lengths: 200-204
This paddle is large and in charge, the biggest blade in my catalogue. It provides a lot of POWER but is still smooth with no flutter. It’s edges are symmetrical and the rounded tip provides a smooth entry so its easy on your shoulders.
Bat'Leth, Sword of Honor
Best uses: creeking
common lengths: 196- 202
A trusty paddle to carry into battle. For the creek boater who keeps their paddle pretty flat for hard sweeps and boofs when you need maximum purchase in shallow waters.
