The Carlisle Day Tripper 2-Piece Kayak Paddle is an entry level recreational kayak paddle. It has asymmetric blades made of polypropylene and shaped for smooth, efficient strokes. The lightweight anodized aluminum shaft is ovalized for easy gripping. This is the paddle of choice for beginners, or for use as a backup. A push-button takedown allows blades to be feathered at 60-degrees or inline, for right- and left-handed control.
