Headland Asymmetric Paddles: These are full carbon blades with full carbon shafts. The blades are available in three sizes. The shafts are available with either straight or neutral crank shafts. Paddles are also available with blades and shafts made in glass rather than carbon.
Blades: These are available in 3 sizes: (Only Mid size currently in stock.)
Headland Asymmetric 625: Smallest blade at 625 cm2. Dimensions: 500mm x 160mm
Headland Asymmetric 685: Mid size blade at 685 cm2. Dimensions: 475mm x 180mm

The blades have a slight dihedral on the power face with a shallow curve in both planes. The majorty of the blade is solid carbon laminate with a foam core in the mid section. The shape and the thin edges give a very quiet and smooth blade with little or no flutter. Combined with the neutal crank shaft these paddles are a joy to use.
Shafts: These are two piece, either staight or cranked with length adjustment of 100mm and rotation adjustment, RH or LH 0 – 90 degree. Locking of the shaft is by a low profile nylon over-centre clamp. Shaft length to order.
Shaft diameter of the straight shafts is 28mm with a slight oval at hand grip to max of 31mm. Shaft diameter of the cranked shafts is 28mm with a pronounced oval at hand grip to max of 34mm. This is a neural crank giving a well balanced and stable paddle, reducing fatigue. A crank shaft is a must for paddlers who suffer from wrist issues. This shaft has a particularly comfortable hand grip with a slight swelling of the shaft either side of the grip allowing a positive location of the grip.
