Quickblade's entry level paddle, The Sweeper. Check it out:
I've been cranking on this paddle for the last couple of months, using it in my lessons and passing it around to anybody interested in trying out a sub-120 dollar paddle. It's the best one I've used at that price- and it has a plastic blade.
A plastic blade is a must-have option in a beginner paddle. If you've ever loaned your paddle out to a friend on the beach, you know that a carbon fiber blade in the wrong hands will DESTROY your rails. That's why it's great to have a plastic blade around- less damage to your board. If you're renting boards or teaching lessons, consider this paddle- it's a nice one.
The Sweeper will be available around June 1st and will retail at $119.
