The Auroras Paddle June 22 2015
Typhoon8 in collaboration with AusDBF has developed a special edition paddle, the Dragonfly II, for the Australian team, The Auroras, to best equip them for their campaign at the World Championships in Canada in August 2015.
The Dragonfly II retains the same superior quality of lightweight robustness and rigidity as it’s predecessor but has a revised blade profile of the Hammerhead with the maximum concavity allowable by the IDBF specifications.
Manufactured with top quality carbon composite material with uni-directional fibre, the Dragonfly II achieves the ultimate ‘stiffness’ for a competition paddle. The new improved ‘low profile’ blade construction enables a sharp ‘bite’ on entry and clean exit upon recovery. The razor sharp tip outline produces a positive stroke action maximising efficiency and paddle performance.
The Dragonfly II has a revised revolutionary shaft with a pronounced ergonomic oval shape to offer a more comfortable and firm grip to drive the blade effortlessly in the water. It comes with a new handle that retains the firm features of the traditional T grip but with a more gentle curve for improved comfort in the hand.
With it’s distinctive ‘Aussie design’ and matching colors of the ‘Auroras’ uniform, the Dragonfly II is the perfect paddle to give the Australian team the most proficient equipment for a ‘winning edge’ towards their campaign.
The Dragonfly II paddle comes with a new version of the Typhoon8 standard bag AB3 that has an adjustable shaft compartment providing a perfect fit for all paddle sizes. It also comes with a mini dry bag for your keys and valuables together in a neat, elegant package.
