Braca VII

TEAR-DROP MODEL

  • Brača VII paddle

Brača VII is designed with a more extreme 'tear-drop' shape, which facilitates a very powerful catch.

This design maximizes the working blade area when it is only partially submerged in the water, especially at the beginning and the end of the stroke cycle.

Due to the special shape, this blade feels bigger compared to a normal ‘tear-drop’ blade with the same area size. The Brača VI is recommended for adult male athletes, while the smaller, identically shaped Brača VII is recommended for adult women athletes.

This blade has been getting increasingly popular in the past years, due to the fact that Danuta KOZAK (HUN) won two Olympic gold medals in London and three golds in Rio using a Brača VII 745 paddle.

You can also choose the stiffness of the shaft. We recommend a stiffer shaft for bigger blades but any combination is possible. See the shaft stiffness measurement prodecure and parameter table below.

Shaft Stiffness Measurement

All Brača VII paddles are available with an Adjustable Shaft System. This allows elegant adjustment of overall paddle length (within 5cm range) and blade angle from 0° to 80° right or left in 5° increments. The system also allows you to disassemble the paddle into two parts for easy transportation.  IMPORTANT!
Always clean your adjustable shaft regularly!
Store your adjustable paddle disassembled if
not used for more than two weeks!
See the maintenance page for details.
