Shaft Stiffness

Paddles and Shaft Stiffness

For most Braca paddles you can also choose the stiffness of the shaft. The tables show shaft stiffness recommendations according to blade size. We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. If you are stronger than average you may need a stiffer shaft. We recommend stiffer shafts for short, sprint distances and softer shafts for longer, marathon distances.

Canoe paddles have 21 different shaft models with stiffness between 1.2 (stiff) and 4.8 (soft). Kayak paddles can be ordered with 24 types of shafts with a 1.8 (stiff) and 4.9 (soft) stiffness range.

See the shaft stiffness measurement procedure and parameter table below. Shaft stiffness is a deflection measurement. The stiffness # is the deflection in mm using a 10kg weight. A higher stiffness number means a softer shaft.
