It is a more dramatic twist teardrop with smoothly delivered power at all stages of the forward stroke and delivers smooth power at all cadences.
Braca VII Due to the special shape, this blade feels bigger compared to a normal ‘tear-drop’ blade with the same area size, such as the Braca I & IV shape. Braca VII are typically used for marathon and sprint, depending on the size of the paddler. Braca VI, a larger version of the same extreme teardrop as the VII, are more typically sprint paddles due to their large size. The VII is a favorite with many top competitors.
