UV88 All Carbon
The Quickblade UV88 Hex Flex Hybrid is the culmination of years of work and research. The aim was simple; to produce the Ultimate V-Drive. Quickblade founder, Jim Terrell, and renowned waterman, Dave Kalama, hours upon hours of water time and all their experience to create what many have been asking for an 88” version of Quickblade best selling paddle.
Quickblade could have simply just made an 88 inch version of the V-Drive, however when dealing with an icon such as this and with the advent of foiling, Quick Blade were always going to have to push themselves to new heights. The result is that the UV88 does much more than just fill a gap in the V-Drive size range of 71, 81, 91 and 101 inches. The scooped contour of the UV 88 delivers the famed rock solid catch that the Quick blade V Drive is famous for but it enables a faster release. This enables you to make your next catch sooner. The 88” inch blade area of the UV88 is also we think the best looking paddle they have ever made, thanks to the 2 colour way options on the Hex fibre wrapped infused foam core.
The shaft of the V-Drive UV-88 is also an all new construction – Black Diamond Elite shaft. With an oval outside diameter of 1’05” (28mm) at the bottom end, tapering to 0.85” outside diameter at the top end. Additional reinforcement has been added to the centre section of the shaft to strengthen it further still and meet the demands of foiling. This also benefits those who are not yet or have no plans to foil as the shaft is stiffer and hard wearing.
