Align just came out with some new CF paddles that look really nice, and they match the align tail blades... not that the beam needs it, but I am just a carbon junkie...

http://www.align.com.tw/shop/produc...roducts_id=2381

http://www.align.com.tw/shop/produc...products_id=972

The tail blades picture on the align page is the older style, the new ones have the radix "tint" to them, so the carbon fades out at the edges, just like the new paddles... I have the new tail blades already installed, and am waiting on the paddles to ship to my LHS.

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

Yes true CF, hollow I do not know.... The tail blades are really nice, and I expect the same quality in the paddles... I guess I dont see $20 being bad when CY stubz for 50 size machines being $45...

But Honey, I can't live with just stock.....

yes but you need the screws for the align shaft. used them instead of the stock one. i could not find nut drivers to fit inside the grips.

You know that you can get 450 size Radix stuff now?
Paddles and tail blades, $20 and $15.
Id buy those over Align any day.
I thought the Beam had a 4mm spindle? That would mean the v1 spindle doesnt work? Hmmm

For the love of the hobby
