Carbon Fiber Ferrules

Standard Paddle Size Ferrule - $27 ea.
New: Greenland Paddle Size Ferrule - $29 ea.

If you make a fancy birdsmouth double paddle for your kayak, or even a solid wood paddle from a section of closet rod - you may want to be able to break it down for transport or storage. It will certainly fit in your car more easily that way. Now you can gain this versatility with one of our ferrule kits. Each allows a double paddle to be broken in two by simply pressing a button and twisting. The standard size ferrule has three different positions - 0°, +60°, and -60°. The Greenland size ferrule has only one.

There are other uses for these ferrules too, such as for pushpoles. Read Rob Rohde-Szudy's article on using a ferrule with a wood pushpole.
