V-Drive 111 Outrigger Paddle, hybrid double bend.
Coming off the success of the V Drive for SUP – Dave Kalama and Jim Terrell went to work on taking the unique design and refined it for Outrigger paddling. For over a year they worked on getting this paddle perfect and with the V Drive 111 have created a unique paddle for all levels of Outrigger paddlers. Featuring a strong and lightweight all-carbon construction, these paddles provide tremendous force in the catch phase of the stroke, delivering outstanding performance throughout all parts of the stroke.
After lots of experimentation that came from our Matchsticks program we are so happy to announce the wide release of our new Vector Net paddle line up. These are really beautiful paddles!
So what is this construction? It is both carbon and fiberglass – a hybrid construction.
We start by painting the core of the blade in brilliant multi color blends to give this paddle a very unique look. Next we strategically laminate a mix of carbon, glass and aramid fibers to find the perfect balance of stiffness. Overall, the vector-net lay-up is a little stiffer and lighter than the all fiberglass 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 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 good fit.
We have the Vector Net blades not only just for SUP in the Trifecta 86 and V Drive 81 and 91 but also for our new V Drive 111 Outrigger paddles. This paddle has been heating up the Outrigger scene with wins all over the place. Including Travis’s recent Molokai win.
