Flexibility index of the shaft of 20 or 40 to accommodate your practice (will depend on the chosen shaft).

Please do not mistake with the paddle G-Power & Bass Razor Race (and Razor Race Pro) “Orange Paddle”.
The shape and size of the Razor blade are dedicated to sports and competition on flat water. The area of 88 sq. in. and its flat shape at the end allow for a sharp phase of entry into the water and a direct phase of power. You will have an important transfer of force to the water and we advise to select it with the U-Cut (or U-Cut oval) shaft.
It is a technical blade with a central water guide on the inner face (dihedral shape). This is to minimize flutter (oscillation of the paddle from right to left during the power phase) and increase control while allowing the entire transfer of energy to the water.
Aqua Inc. assembles the Razor Blade Paddle on demand, in five handle versions according to YOUR needs.
