The wolferine is the touring TNP paddle on a glass shaft with carbon reinforcing, we push the 2 piece version as can be set up left or right handed, easier to store and could work as a spare paddle on a sea kayak. Touring paddles are longer, the most popular size is 220, but shorter paddlers 5ft-5ft5 might go down to a 215 and really tall paddlers might go 225. Some sit on top paddlers also like the really long paddle due to the width of their kayaks. The blades are always white in colour, unless you pay extra for some carbon granules to be added that turn it black. Personally I don’t see the gain.
