The Quickblade UV-88 All Carbon or AC for short, is the Ultimate V Drive – the culmination of years of work and research by arguably the most successful performance Stand Up Paddle manufacturer in the world. Quickblade founder, Jim Terrell, and renowned waterman, Dave Kalama, have invested their time and energy in creating what has to be one of the most requested sizes of V-Drive; 88 inches. However, the UV88 does much more than just fill a gap in the very popular V-Drive size range of 71, 81, 91 and 101 inches. The scooped contour of the UV 88 still delivers the rock-solid catch that the Quick blade V Drive is famous for but it enables a faster release. This enables you to make your next catch sooner. The 88” inch blade area of the UV88 is also the stiffest due to the layers of Carbon layer the infused foam core.
