Kialoa Insanity Paddles

Crazy Light , Crazy Strong, Crazy Affordable 

Brand New KIALOA Insanity FG Carbon Fiber SUP Paddle. A premium all-around paddle at a below premium price. The Insanity Carbon blade with the RST carbon fiber shaft. 
  • Blade Material: Carbon Fiber

  • Shaft Shape: RST Round shaft technology
  • Grip: carbon Ergo-T or Palm Grip
  • Weighs only 19 oz
This a great paddle Very light and feels great in you hand as you paddle. Casual paddling & just exploring the paddle works awesome thru all phases of the stroke, the catch, power phase and release.. I applied power to the stroke springing and the shave felt a little stiff  ( not much flex in shaft ) and felt the torque on my shoulders. It accelerated in the waves. quick bursts strokes gets you going and the light weight in switching sides was easy while maneuvering on the wave. The only difference between my Methane paddle and the Insanity paddle is the oval tapered shaft on the Methane and round shaft on the insanity. I prefer the oval design fitting anatomically  in your hand as the Insanity's light weight is forgiving so you don't really notice the hand positioning between the two . The price is a lot more affordable then the high end Methane/GL ect.. Plus the durability of this new paddle is second to none for performance. Kialoa has a winner with this new paddle.
