The STAGE SwitchBlade SUP paddle is used similar to a kayak paddle while stand up paddleboarding. This method creates a steady rhythm, which provides better balance and increased maneuverability. These 2-sided SUP paddles are great for beginners learning to balance and for experts running rivers or paddling into currents and small waves. Once you try the STAGE Switchblade double bladed paddleboard paddle, you will not want to go back to a single paddle again.
Top dollar no doubt but comparatively to competitors it’s worth it
Well made- paddles and looks great, just the right amount of stiffness and well balanced. Makes paddling in wind or current much easier and much easier to maintain balance in waves or chop or when the dog is onboard. No more having to awkwardly swing the blade over the dog and I can more quickly plant a brace when he moves or I catch an edge. Also much easier to avoid that rock that sneaks up on you. I get more out of my SUP workouts with it because I spend more time on power strokes and less on steering strokes. It’s such a game changer I’m able to use my SUP allot more. Well done Stage!!!
I have both the all carbon and the new 3.0. The 3.0 is a tad heavier then the carbon but it also doesn’t the flex that you have with the 4 piece carbon. I like both and think the new design is awesome and couldn’t be happier. I like both paddles and if I didn’t have the carbon I wouldn’t have noticed the weight difference. The only thing I would do differently on the new paddle is add the increments showing the paddle length from 1-10 like you have on the carbon. That literally is my only wish. Great job STAGE!!!
