Professional quality guidesticks, designed with the help of some of the best guides in the business. These are a tough product that will provide many years of service. Our guidesticks boast a number of features and options not found in other products.
For company and outfitter use, we recommend our standard shaft, using high grade 6061-T6, 0.065inch wall aluminium tubing covered with an abrasion resistant Dynel sleeving. For a more natural feel that is kinder on the joints, we produce wood shaft guidesticks to order with hardwood shafts covered with a carbon fibre sleeve. For an exceptionally light but strong guidestick, a carbon shaft from skypole is also available.
Length options - The total length of our standard guidestick is 163cm (64in), other lengths are available on request.
KevlarTM reinforced blade - The blades are reinforced with layers of woven Kevlar fibre, abrasion resistant S-glass and epoxy resin for superior longevity.
Integrated tip - An abrasion resistant dynel tip is bonded directly to the facing layers for improved paddle integrity, giving many years of service.
T grip options - Our new wooden T grips are fitted as standard. We have a small number of reclaimed plastic T grips available at no extra cost.
Blade size - Our standard guidesticks have a 21cm x 46cm (8.25in x 18in) blade - big enough for guiding even heavy 12 person rafts. We can also produce guidesticks with a large blade which is 21cm x 62cm (8.25in x 24.5in).
Colours - We produce guidesticks in a range of blade colours as well as a natural kevlar finish. Our standard range of colours are; Black, White, Red, Navy Blue, Yellow, Green, Orange, Purple, Pink and we will do our best to mix any other colour to order. Coloured aluminium shafts are available at no extra charge.
Personalisation and Branding - The Shaggy Designs logo is incorporated into each side of the blade layup during manufacture as standard on all uncoloured blades. For a small additional charge, your personalised logos can also be added, subject to a maximum size of 6cm x 12.5cm (2.5in x 5in). Logos should be supplied as .png, .jpg, .gif or .doc files. Our standard construction uses a clear resin, giving the blades the yellow colour of natural Kevlar.
