  • Humpback Paddle

    Who makes the best paddle to use in a humpback? The ones from Lifelong keep breaking at the ears where they are bolted to the rudder arm. They are supposedly guarenteed for life (so we gave away our old ones after installation) but you can not get a replacement.They have changed the paddle at least twice since we got the Humpback.I just want a paddle that will not break.
    Well we're safe for now. Thank God we're in a Bowling Center.

    I use the Vantage PBL paddle.....it is stiff enough to do the job well.

      If your busting up that many paddles. Leads me to think there are other issues involved.

      Vantage PBL paddles are Solid !!

        All of the first yellow paddles broke and we were told the person moulding them made a mistake. Then the red paddle came out and we broke 4 out of 6. All of these paddles are extremely flexible. You could easily bend them around a beer bottle.
