      A:

      The blue one has a symmetrical blade, the red is assymetrical .. the PTR (blue) blade is slightly larger and the paddle has a couple of ounces over the PTK

      A:

      Benjamin, the main difference is the blade shape. It's asymmetrical in the PTK and symmetrical in the PTR. The blade shape on the PTK is similar to the shape of higher end whitewater paddles. Also, the PTK has an indexed shaft that helps with paddle control.

      I'd say no, because I think I have the same paddle. Mine are not offset by 45
      degrees though.

      No, it is a one-piece paddle, with a 45-degree feather, or offset.

    Comments about NRS PTR Kayak Paddle 45 Degree:

    Im a Tour Provider and this paddle was ordered as the guide paddle. My plan is to switch the whole fleet with this paddle. Now; originally I was aiming for the one piece paddle instead of the take apart. But apparently that was no option.(for shipping reasons) Anyways. The paddle performs absolutely great. It gives me with a great deal of displacement that helps me go up and down the kayaks line, being able to reach my clients in a faster manner when needed. Also it helps me on my TOWING duties, since part of the tour is against the wind and this usually takes a toll on those kayaking for the first time. So the extra help of being able to achieve torque with my paddling is a plus. I paddle closely to rocks and the paddle is sturdy against them. Im in love with it. If a bit of weight is not an issue, you definitely want this paddle.

        Comments about NRS PTR Kayak Paddle 45 Degree:

        Overall the paddle is good for the price and performs well. I would buy it again. When paddling, it feels kind of canoe like. For a power stroke, it does displace a fair amount of water. It takes getting used to, but it is a good paddle.

            Comments about NRS PTR Kayak Paddle 45 Degree:

            I needed a solid, inexpensive paddle that could handle the ocean/beach/surf environment. This fit the bill and is almost perfect for the price. A tad heavy (but that's not real important in the surf). And I would have like an oval shaft on the power hand, but other than that ...this gets a 4 out of 5 for my intended use.
