The Brača VI 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.
As well as blade sizes outlined here, these paddles are customisable to your specifications on the right.
