The Ray Special is our number one seller. It is more than just a beautiful paddle. It combines a well-proportioned blade with an appealing ratio between the blade and shaft lengths. Ray Specials pair a shaft and blade of equal length. This results in a paddle with a longer than normal blade that is mechanically superior to other paddles. The Ray Special is a great paddle for canoe tripping, lake paddling as well as paddling solo. The long blade provides a solo canoeist with greater reach and responsiveness. Although not for whitewater the Special is great for all other paddling needs.

All paddles take up to 3 weeks to craft and 4-6 days in shipping.

The last paddle I will ever own

Good afternoon, I received my paddle yesterday (24/06/18) and I have been staring at it since last night, amazed in the beauty, the lightweight and just that smell of the oil.

I took it out this morning for paddle around the lake with a group of high school kids (I run a youth program and have an inventory of canoes)...

I took out my personal 14 foot Clipper packer and within two strokes was absolutely amazed how beautifully this paddle handles. It slices through the water like a hot knife through butter. The stroke is easier to do and with the blade length less effort is needed to maintain speed and it just feels like an absolute joy to use. Thank you so much.

Great paddles .

This is a new form of paddling for me (solo) so at this time I do not have the knowledge or experience to give a review.

Should Have Purchased Sooner

I spoke with Greg on the phone and via email many many months ago, but I just could not commit to the Ray Special. Just different than what I have used in the past. I was also unsure about the sizing as well. Long story short, this was the exact paddle I wanted but never committed to. Better to have a foolish moment than to be a fool! I just received it Friday, applied a couple coats of oil, and took it out Monday. I am 6ft paddling a solo Wenonah Wilderness. I edge my boat and sit in a kneeling position most of the time. I enjoy the Indian Stroke and really try to keep my blade in the water 90% of the time I am paddling. This paddle does that with perfection. Feathers through the water with silence and no effort at all. Has a fantastic catch and no flutter on the draw. I took this to Ichetucknee springs to put it through its paces. This is my favorite spot to try a new paddle and it did not disappoint. Paddled up stream 3.5 miles and then another 3.5 back down. I will be buying a second paddle before the year is done. Probably a modified ray or modified ottertail to compliment this paddle for shallow water situations.

The paddle craftsmanship was spot on as well. Nearly perfectly balanced at the throat. Ergonomic handle and the shaft size was not too bulky. Great weight and finish. Thanks again!
