This review is on the paddle that a lot of Kayakers will want to get.  This paddle is high quality with a nice weight for the cost.  The paddle we are talking about is the Carlisle Magic Plus Kayak Paddle made by Carlisle Product Gear which is a company that is headquartered in Old Town, Maine.

The Carlisle Magic Plus Kayak Paddle is a high end paddle that is made of lightweight and durable high-impact glass-filled polypropylene.  The paddle comes in sizes 220 cm, 230 cm, and 240 cm.  The paddle’s weight is only 35.6 ounces due to the light weight fiberglass material it is made of.

The price range for the paddles are between $75.00 – $99.00.  The price and value is a key factor in this product.  I would recommend it to someone that doesn’t want to spend $250.00+ on a kayak paddle.

Advantages:

  • Adjustable blade angles – blade feathering  0° or 60° for right- or left-handed control
  • Good for all water conditions
  • Good range of paddle lengths
  • Price is great
  • Push button breakdown
  • Lightweight and strong material

Made in USA.
