Have a look at the video below for a quick introduction to the Angler Classic, the best-selling kayak fishing paddle on the market:
The Angler Classic’s User-Friendly ShaftLike all our paddles, the Angler Classic is hand-constructed at our headquarters in Osceola, Wisconsin. We begin with an ovalized fiberglass shaft that’s durable, warm on your hands and gives you a couple features you’ll love.
First, you have two ferrule options. The snap-button ferrule enables adjustable feathering angles of 0º or 60º. Or for just $25 more, you can choose the adjustable-length ferrule of the Angler Classic Versa-Lok.
There are two big advantages of an adjustable-length ferrule:
- You have the option of lengthening or shortening your paddle by up to 15 cm. This is ideal if you have more than one boat, have an adjustable-height seat or if others will use this paddle, too.
- Our Versa-Lok ferrule allows for infinite feathering angles, which comes in handy when you’re dealing with high winds.
The Angler Classic’s Blades
One blade also features a built-in hook retrieval system for those times when your favorite lure ends up snagged in a tree or in the weeds. Your blade color options include Tidal Blue or Electric Green.
The Angler Classic’s SpecsThe Angler Classic weighs in at 35.5 ounces for the snap-button model and 37 ounces for the Versa-Lok model. Heavier than our performance carbon-shaft paddles, but still light enough to keep you on the water all day without the fatigue you’ll get from cheap, clunky paddles.
The Angler Classic Versa-Lok is available in adjustable lengths of 240-255 cm, 250-265 cm or 260-275 cm.
If you go with the snap-button Angler Classic, it’s available in 240 cm, 250 cm, 260 cm, 270 cm and 280 cm.
Take a look at each model in detail:
- Angler Classic—this model retails for $159.95.
- Angler Classic Versa-Lok—this model retails for $184.95
