The colourful Vector-net lay-ups have the perfect balance of stiffness and flex in this hybrid construction.
With excellent torsional stiffness they’re ideal for both surfing, touring and racing, while also being more forgiving on the shoulders and wrists than the all carbon version.
So what is this construction? It is both carbon and fibreglass – a hybrid construction.
QB starts by painting the core of the blade in brilliant multi colour blends to give this paddle a very unique look. Next they strategically laminate a mix of carbon, glass and aramid fibres to find the perfect balance of stiffness. Overall, the vector-net lay-up is a little stiffer and lighter than the all fibreglass blade lay-up but not quite as stiff and light as the all carbon lay-up.
Our surfing customers are REALLY into these paddles. But with their lightweight configuration they do work well for racing – we have many members of the QB family with these in their racing quiver. Especially if you are looking for a more forgiving paddle – this one is a GREAT fit!!
