The Modified OPELU is the newest version of our OPELU race paddle (AKA the Big Blade on the Block) with additional carbon fiber reinforcement and a shark teeth design. We reduced the teardrop entry for a more squared-off tip to deliver an incredible"locked" feel on catch and release with ease, especially among OC1 paddlers looking for a training tool.
When you want a blade with an unbeatable catch, the OPELU is your answer. The design of this blade will leave you feeling locked in and ready to race!
Constructed from lightweight woods such as Balsa, Cedar, Basswood and White Pine, the OPELU is one of the most durable, lightweight paddle blades on the market today. Our ergonomic "D" grip handle and dihedral allow for a stroke that both feels good as it does wonders to your paddling technique - whether you're new at this or have been doing it all your life!
