Slick Sculling Blade
The Slick sculling blade is normally assembled with a 40mm hook. A smaller blade is available for women and schoolgirls who want a slightly lighter load at the catch. Slick blades are available on all shafts.
The Slick blade is now available with closed edges, which improves the blade's durability and overall performance. The Slick blade has no ridgeline so there is less splash at the catch.
The low volume blade enters the water quickly and quietly and floats low in the water. The longitudinal curvature is perpendicular to the tip and so is in line with the flow of water. It has a constant pitch across the tip and all lines parallel to the tip.The gentle asymmetric curvature of the blade assures a clean release from the water with every stroke. Slick blades are visibly cleaner than other blades. The Slick blade does not exhibit any negative tendencies during recovery or in bad weather. Since the Slick blades introduction it has been extremely successful at all levels of rowing.
