The Fanatic Carbon Pro model comes with a super light and responsive 100% 12K Carbon blade. Combined with our Union paddle design and its 100% 3K Carbon shaft, it is strong yet one of the lightest paddles around. With a reduction in swing weight, this paddle has an ultra fast flex response from the tip of the blade right through to the top of the handle, which also shines in precious 12K Carbon. The Carbon Pro paddle is available in both 7.25” and our 6.75” blade size. Each has an integrated ABS blade protector and is available in fixed length or adjustable shaft, featuring our Anti Twist System. Fanatic Union Joint System In the past, all paddle flex patterns were made up of two parts: the blade, and the shaft. An oversized stiff joint disrupted these two flexible parts, where paddle and shaft were connected. The Fanatic Union System paddle has revolutionised the unified flex pattern. It now runs seamlessly from the tip of the blade all the way to the shaft. By moving the connection joint further up the shaft, it tapers perfectly into a RDM joint, resulting in constant flex for an unmatched spring and response with every stroke. From the moment the blade enters the water your energy is converted into forward drive. The Union paddle is available in four construction styles for a straightforward selection of paddles to match your performance and budget. Our 6.75″ For those paddling with a higher frequency, we offer the next step from our favoured 7.25” blade. Slight double concaves cater for a super controlled stroke with better traction and ultimately a higher efficiency. The extra powers these concaves create allow for this small blade size with better aerodynamics between the strokes and reduced swing weight compared to larger blades.
