Why we paddle with Swift Paddles:

Swift Paddle Information
Four Distinct Blade Designs:
The Sea Swift is a full sized aggressive blade design.
The Mid Swift is the most popular blade size and an excellent choice for most touring kayakers. The Mid Swift is featured in the photos on this page.
The Wind Swift is a paddle that is excellent in high winds and delivers a healthy amount of paddle power for all but the most demanding conditions.
The Skookum is a paddle designed for high angle power!
Swift paddles blades are available in Eddyline's unique modulus composite or graphite.
All Swift paddles feature graphite shafts.
Modulus blades are available in four translucent jewel tones; Amber Gold, Ruby Red, Emerald Green and Cobalt Blue. They radiate in the sunlight and are brilliantly visible in the water.
All graphite blades are stealth black.
Lengths and Breakdown Configurations:
Swift Paddles are available in 220cm, 225cm, 230cm, or 240cm lengths for immediate delivery OR you can specify a specific length. We are available to determine the right length and model for you.
Swift Paddles are available as one piece OR as two or four piece (nice when traveling by air) breakdown paddles.
All breakdown paddles feature the new Feather Lock Ferrule System.
Feather Lock Ferrule System:
Eddyline's new ferrule system allows precise feathering changes in 15 degree increments: 0, 45, 60, and 75 degrees; right and left sides. The Feather Lock collar is low profile and its protected, external configuration makes for easy cleaning and reduces the possibility of jamming. When closed there is NO play in the joint and no doubt about the angle you have chosen.
Changing degrees is a simple: Depress the button and slide joint apart. Rotate shaft to desired position. While still holding button down, push joint together to lock. You will like the elegant simplicity. No knurled locking rings, no tools, no levers.
