Bent Shaft Paddle sticker shock!!!
« on: October 13, 2016, 10:58 PM »
After reading a couple of articles regarding bent shaft paddles, I'm sold on the fact that it may help the tennis elbow that has been bugging me all summer. I started to look around only to find that they are all over $300! Is there something I'm missing here? Is there a cheaper alternative brand I haven't seen? I have a hard time buying stuff so expensive, let alone selling my wife on the purchase.  ::)

  I had a cheap paddle (heavy)for several years early on....Honestly a high quality, very light, bent shaft paddle is worth investing in, IMHO.  It is night and day how much nicer and more enjoyable they are to paddle all day.  I know 300+  is a chunk of change, but it will pay for itself.    I have one i qould be happy to let you demo of you were interested.  hit me up, we can figure out a time

There is not a great paddle on the market for less then 200 bucks, lots of fancy looking paddles but none that are top of the line.

Think of it as your motor, cause it pretty much is.
