Modified Ottertail by Fishell Paddles
The Modified Ottertail is a variant of an Ottertail with its broader shoulders at the top of the blade. This puts the widest part of the blade near the paddler’s lowest hand and offers better control and greater power. The Modified Ottertail is Ideal for those paddlers who like a shorter blade but are looking for a little more surface area than the traditional Ottertail. The Modified Ottertail is well suited for tandem and makes a great tripping paddle for all day paddling.
