The Assault Hand Paddle revolution is on! The Paddle Matters!

The Assault Hand Paddle has arrived. Backwater Paddle Company reached a major milestone in its corporate development. After nearly a year of waiting and endless manufacturing delays, the release of the Assault Hand Paddle is an exciting moment in the evolution of paddle sports.

The Assault Hand Paddle is “revolutionizing paddle sportsmen’s stealth and mobility.” The only paddle designed for paddle sportsmen seeking stealth and close quarter mobility. The plastic paddle's distinctive visual appeal and raised graphic design sets it apart from all other paddles in the paddle sports market.

The Paddle Matters! Some say the Assault Hand Paddle’s unique and versatile blade design is a cross between medieval weapon and sports racquet. Whatever the observation regarding this state-of-the-art paddle, it is 100% efficient. The unparalleled blade design evolved out of physical necessity. At 22” long by 6” wide, weighing only 12 ounces, paddle sportsmen needed a smaller and more functional paddle while battling tight spaces, or to simply reposition their kayak.

The Assault Hand Paddles patented “hook and teeth” blade design provides the ultimate tool for kayak anglers, hunters and photographers. The lightweight and compact hand paddle provides a one-handed option to position their boat for maximum maneuverability and productivity. This single-handed paddling option allows the paddle sportsman to continue to fight fish, hunt ducks or shoot photos while staying on target.

Backwater Paddle Company’s patented “hook” blade design permits grabbing, snagging or snatching objects to retrieve or position your craft. The paddle's “teeth” provide positive purchase while pushing or shoving off objects.

The genesis of the Assault Hand Paddle came from its former wooden siblings, the Predator and Piranha Kayak Fishing Hand Paddles. These earlier generation wood paddles were proof of concept that seven foot paddles were not the answer for every paddle sportsman. With the rapid growth of paddle sports, it became evident paddle sportsmen needed a smaller, more compact and practical paddle in their daily endeavors.

To enhance product association and market recognition, the plastic Assault Hand Paddle was designed incorporating the innovative features of prior wood hand paddles. Not only did Backwater Paddles want a completely functional plastic paddle, but a paddle that created the “wow” factor. Plastic molded paddles provided an unique opportunity to make an awesome visual statement, as well as product longevity.

MSRP $29.95. The Assault Hand Paddle will retail for $29.95. The hand paddles are expected to be in outdoor retail and paddle sport stores this year. As of now, they can be purchased from the Backwater Paddle Company web store.

Backwater Paddle Company is a paddle sport manufacturing business located in Central Florida. Ed Halm is the owner and chief paddle designer. Having been in business only a few years, the future paddle designs will include kayak, canoe and SUP paddles. These forthcoming paddles will all incorporate the patented “hook and teeth” blade design, as well as the awesome raised graphics package.
