Meek G Series Clint Robinson Flex Construction
$815.00 inc GST
The G-Shape is a parallel edged blade that has an equal balance of surface area either side of the shaft. This paddle is excellent for messy, unstable conditions where the direction of stroke is compromised (eg moving water) because it stays stable in the water regardless of whether it is pulled wide or close to the boat. It also suits the paddler who has difficulty with sore shoulders and the load is spread more evenly throughout the stroke.

“For the last 2 years Clint Robinson and I have worked together to bring a new paddle construction into the Meek Paddle Range. There are two schools of thought around paddle stiffness. The first and our main focus at Meek Paddles until now, is a relatively stiff construction targeting maximal power transfer. The second, is a more flexible blade and shaft, to give a smoother feel and minimise potential impact/injury of joints and tendons. Clint worked with us to help us bring a more flexible paddle into our range.
Clint has been instrumental in the development of his own paddles for over 3 decades. He attributes a significant amount of his paddling success to his feel for the water and he has found that some flex in the blades and shaft are instrumental in facilitating this. He also found that this flex is pivotal in reducing injuries. “
