H2O's Fast Ferrule

The industries fastest and simplest feather adjustment system. There is no need to separate the shaft to make feather adjustments, just push together, turn and release. Our engineered locking system takes care of the rest. For ease of transport, the Fast Ferrule system features a single "open" position that allows the paddle to be separated.
