So I want to know what you guys think, what should Backwater Paddles call their new prototype? What names should I respond back with?



I had to leave off Ravage, Warrior, and Warmouth the polls will only allow me to post 10 options. If you want those names just reply to this topic with Warmouth, Warrior, or Ravage.

In a couple of days I’ll email Ed Back with the YA Nations response.

Raptor is cool but my vote goes to "Warrior".

All I know is that I love my Backwater Paddle. I rarely ever pick up my full size paddle anymore. The Predator is great for backing up a bit or spinning that back end of the yak around for a better casting strategy and I let my pedals do the rest. :cheer:

my first thought when I saw the first product back in July was BoneFish (given the obvious color as it is now).

Warmouth isn't a bad one either.

Reminds me of a Hawaiian War Axe. No matter what it ends up being called, I want one!

Just wanted to thank you guys for help in selecting a name for our new plastic hand paddles. The ASSAULT Hand Paddle was the name most selected for the new paddles.

Appreciate your time and consideration.

Paddle on my friends!!
