Blade:
RTM Carbon Blades: Beautiful, light-weight and strong
A brand new range of high quality, performance paddles. The new, light-weight RTM carbon blades offer top class performance and feel. With a beautiful glossy finish, RTM Carbon paddles inherit the strength, endurance and unique three year warranty for which Ainsworth is renowned. The new Resin Transfer Moulded (RTM) blades achieve their performance through a high-tech manufacturing process, which uses vacuum, pressure-injected moulding to produce blades having the same strength but much lower weight than with traditional techniques.

Shaft:
This paddle is available with the following shaft options:
straight titanium enriched alloy shaft: corrosion resistant alloy specially selected for paddling use.
straight glass/epoxy prepreg shaft: made with Ainsworth filament wound technology - 30% more strength for the same weight.
straight carbon shaft: made with Ainsworth filament wound technology - significantly lighter than our glass/epoxy shafts.
cranked carbon/alloy shaft: lightweight and strong cranked carbon composite shaft with integral sculpted index grip for greater comfort and a more positive feel.
four part split: glassfibre shaft with multi–angle, salt water resistant fittings.

This is a great paddle for anyone who regally paddles on canals or flat water, I've had mine for nearly 3 years now and I can't paddle with anything else for long trips it can't be beat as when paddling with it is effortless.
