Handle Sizing

“What Size Handle Will I Require?”

To find the required handle length, please measure your paddle as described below.

A. Measure/Note the original length of your paddle.

B. Note the final desired paddle length (DBX recommends consulting with your coach, or click HERE for more info).

C. Measure the useable base length (from the tip of the blade to where the shaft joins the handle).

D. Now take the desired final paddle length and subtract the useable base length. This will give you the measurement of the handle you require*.

(*If this measurement is over 6″, we cannot customize the handle to your desired length.
Any length beyond 6″ will alter the flex characteristics of your paddle dramatically. Additionally weight will become a factor, as well as increased stress on the connection point.)
