The AquaBound Sting Ray Hybrid Posi-Lok paddle is designed to provide superior performance, a low swing weight, at an economical price by combining a carbon shaft with fiberglass aBX II blades. The Aqua Bound Sting Ray is a lightweight, all-purpose paddle with a blade shape that is silky smooth through the water. The carbon shaft gives this paddle an incredibly low swing weight and is unbeatable at this price! Features the Posi-Lok ferrule system. Posi-Lok is an adjustable ferrule system which allows the paddle to be feathered at several angles and makes adjustability on the fly a breeze. Left handed paddlers, or paddlers who enjoy changing the angle of the paddle to suit the conditions, will like the versatility of the Posi-Lok ferrule system. Simply pinch the dual-button release and twist to your desired feather angle. The ferrule clicks firmly into the lock position to achieve a rock solid connection with no play whatsoever. The Posi-Lok ferrule does NOT allow for changes to the length of the paddle.

Fantastic product!! Has the feel of a $200 paddle. It is extremely durable as well. I'm able to push off the bottom, rocks, boat docks, etc. and not worry about the paddle being damaged. I ordered 240cm for my 12' fishing kayak. I'm 6' with long arms and it's the perfect length. Thank you ACK for a fantastic value!
Bought the paddle about 8 months ago for Christmas 2013. I use it a couple times a month for fishing in the local rivers and lakes along with the occasional trip to the coast. Over all i like the paddle but on my latest trip to PINS the locking system failed. I am not sure what can be done to fix the problem but well be looking into it.
Pete - contact ACK customer service at 888-828-3828 and we will get your paddle repaired/replaced.
Have used this paddle for 2 yrs now w/ my Perception Carolina 13.5 and very pleased with the performance and durability. I use this paddle mainly on lakes, as I'm a bit apprehensive about tearing up the blades on some rivers I travel on. Very light, gives you an enhanced feeling of control. Get a pair of Yakgrips w/ it and you will be heaven. Paddle drip rings could be a bit better as water sometimes gets past them. Breaks down (in half) for easy storage or transport in car trunk or back seat. Locking mechanism is great (thought initially that it would be an issue), and being able the change the paddle angles is a plus. Consult w/ someone at ACK to make sure you get the right length paddle for your needs.
This is a great paddle for the money. I have less shoulder and neck fatigue because its so light. It's the way to go , spend the extra money it's worth it.
