The Tower Ultralight Carbon Fiber SUP paddle weighs in at a mere 21.5 ounces when cut to a length of 80 inches, a good length for a six foot tall person. If youre a bit shorter than that and cutting the paddle down a bit, it will even be lighter. The paddle starts at 87 inches and you cut it down to fit your size. Its an ultralight SUP paddle, but also extremely durable and well designed. This paddle is made in the same factory as SUP paddles youll find in retail stores selling in the range of $250-$300 due to the wholesale plus retail markup thru the distribution channel.

The design of the blade is a teardrop shape with a slightly flattened bottom edge. The face of the blade angles forward about 10 degrees and there is a slight cupping back near the bottom. The stylish matte black blade has a width of 9.25 and a depth of 16. The attachment point for the blade goes 6 up the shaft so the stress point on the paddle is not at a joint.

When we set out to add a carbon fiber paddle to the Tower line-up, we didnt look to get the cheapest paddle available that we could still call carbon fiber, which is what youll find out there from many companies. Be especially careful of the companies that bundle in paddles with boards. Ive experienced the downside of this first hand in a board + paddle package I got at what I thought was a discount rate. The paddle broke on the second day it was used and stranded me in the middle of the bay with my 5 year old son on the nose of the board. I had to paddle back to shore with my hands. Fortunately, I wasnt in an area with strong currents or if could have been a dangerous situation I was left in. My take away was that paddles are an important safety component of stand up paddle boarding. Your board isnt going to fail the middle of a bay and leave you stranded, but a broken paddle will do just that. We took this to heart when developing our own carbon fiber paddles. We cut a chunk out of the cost of paddles by selling direct, but we didnt cut any corners on building in durability and a quality construction to an ultralight SUP paddle.

Carbon Fiber Paddle December 12, 2013
Review by: Anonymous Person from Lake Zurich, Illinois  
We had an aluminum 2 piece paddle that eventually ended up at the bottle of our lake. We researched the Tower Carbon Fiber and purchased one in the summer. We have purchased our secone one. Extremely light, tough and it floats! Great value for the price point. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.

Love this paddle! September 23, 2013
Review by: Sidney Bruce from Capitola, CA United States  
I bought the paddle with the board and wondered if I needed such a "high end" paddle but once I got out there and started paddling I was so glad I spent the money on it.  It is so light it's like paddling with air.  Was a great investment.  (Watch a couple Utube videos for the best way to size it down).
