The AquaBound Manta Ray Carbon kayak paddle with a Posi-Lok ferrule is designed to provide superior performance with low swing weight by combining a carbon shaft with carbon abX II blades. The AquaBound Manta Ray Carbon blades have a slightly larger surface for athletic paddlers who prefer a high angle paddling style with more bite. It's ideal for those interested in fitness, adventure racing, or those who like to use an aggressive, high-angle paddle stroke. The Manta Ray Carbon features the Posi-Lok adjustable 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.

this is a very, very nice paddle. It was a big more expensive than the Werner Skagit paddle I was using, but I paddle a large kayak and needed more power. This paddle delivers it with no flutter.
I love this paddle. It is very light and with the Posi-Lok system it is easy to adjust it to my paddling style. I did install Yakgrips on the paddle because of the grooving inherent in the design of the paddle shaft. It makes the paddle more comfortable for long trips and it works perfectly for me.
