The Backwater Paddle Assault Hand Paddle is a must-have kayak accessory for anyone who enjoys fishing, hunting, or taking photos from their kayak. The Assault Hand Paddle allows you to continue paddling with one hand while holding your fishing rod, camera, or other gear, and it’s small and convenient size allows it to be easily stored inside of your kayak within arms reach.
While we admit that this paddle definitely looks a bit strange at first glance, we absolutley love its unique design. The paddle’s large hook makes it a great tool for grabbing hold of stuff, and the teeth provide excellent grip when pushing off. There are so many different uses for the Assault Hand Paddle — it’s really an indispensable piece of kayaking gear in our opinion.
Measuring 22″ long, 6″ wide, and weighing only 12 ounces, Backwater Paddle’s Assault Hand Paddle is extremely lightweight, super strong, and it even floats. The paddle currently comes in two colors:

Backwater Paddle Company guarantees the Assault Hand Paddle for life against breakage, and there’s also a 30 day money back guarantee.
