Modified Ottertail by Fishell Paddles

Modified Ottertail

Product Description

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.

I ordered one of these after breaking a bending branches Java paddle. I love how it looks and feels. I'm no expert paddler, but I love how this feels. The narrower blade allows for a fast paddling pace and easy control. It seems to wear less on you paddling over time, if that makes any sense. Great quality paddles!
