The GP2 is a word beater developed and used by one of the greatest of all time South African Hank McGregor. The GP2 has a full carbon layup making it very light while retaining all the strength and durability it needs to cope with surf and white water. This blade is unique in shape and has a very strong catch point, this allows the paddler to get maximum benefit from the catch which is where you are at your strongest and will gain maximum benefit. It is a very stable blade throughout transition allowing the paddler to lock on throughout their rotation and has quick and easy release giving you the time and stability you need to get maximum benefit from every stroke. The GP2 has a slightly larger volume than the GP1 giving it the extra impact it needs to be one of the best short course surf ski and kayak paddles on the market, or for those who can handle the extra volume in their endurance racing.
