The unit measures a very compact 550mm L x 150mm W and features some vicious looking teeth and a very handy hook. I absolutely appreciate the compact size of this tool because as a Hobie owner I found it a chore to carry around the full size paddle.
The Assault Hand Paddle has a very ergonomic foam grip and I have found that the wide handle allows for some very strong paddle strokes when necessary. I now use my paddle to launch from the bank, correct alignment when fishing, reversing and I even use the hook for tying off to branches when I want to make multiple casts at a specific structure or area.
The paddle is made from a blended fiberglass / poly propylene plastic to create a super strong material and the backbone ribbing increase the durability so much so that the manufacturer 100% guarantees you will not break this paddle during any normal paddling activities. It weighs a mere 340 grams and if that wasn’t enough, this thing even floats! I have mine attached to a lanyard and I simply throw it behind my seat when its not required.
This is one serious bit of kit and its versatility, design and light weight make for an ideal kayak fishing tool. My Hobie paddles are now collecting dust in the shed while my Assault Hand Paddle is a trusty companion on all fishing expeditions.
The paddle is distributed in Australia through MLTE, so contact Colin today and find your nearest dealer because every yakker derserves a Stealth Assault Paddle. https://www.facebook.com/mlte76?fref=ts
