YakGear’s latest product releases, Backwater Paddle Company paddles, arm individuals with what they need to navigate the waters and embrace the adventure.
Backwater Paddle Company’s newest innovation, the Backwater Assassin Carbon Fiber Hybrid Paddle, is a full shaft, double-bladed paddle available now through yakgear.com and local dealers. The Assassin’s teeth allow paddlers to push off the shore or rocks, while its hook makes it simple to grab limbs to pull in and retrieve treed lures. Its blades are constructed from durable and fade-resistant nylon-injected ABS, while the shaft is carbon hybrid. The paddle comes in black and is available in two size options, 230-240 cm. and 250-260 cm. It sells for $159.99, and drip rings are included.
The Backwater Assault Hand Paddle, available for $29.95 through yakgear.com and local YakGear dealers, is ideal for quick adjustments on the water. Its teeth allow users to push off the shore or rocks, while the hooked end makes it possible to grab limbs to pull through tight spots. The Assault is made of strong, fade-resistant plastic, and is available in Olive Green or High-Viz Orange. At less than 23 inches long, and weighing less than one pound, the Assault makes storage simple.
YakGear President Bill Bragman described Backwater paddles as ideal tools for any paddler focused on enjoying the ride and keeping things moving.
“You encounter a lot of obstacles out on the water,” he explained. “Not every paddle is sturdy enough to withstand a push off a rock, or built to let you easily hook on to a tree branch. These guys are strong, and you can depend on them through every leg of your trip.”
