The EDGE series is a new patented concept from Epic Gear. All of the EDGE paddles have a urethane edge molded into the blade. This soft urethane edge protects the SUP board from scrapes and dings caused by contact from the paddle. Paddle weighs 28.92 oz. Our board repair guy hates this paddle because it took away half of his repairs.....keep your board edges CLEAN with this new design! Our most popular paddle.
