It is always exciting when two big names we like come together and collaborate. This is exactly what has happened with Infinity who make some of the fastest race sups out there, as well as great surf sups started working with Black Project to create a paddle range. Black Project have been putting way more time and effort than most brands into refining paddles and it shows on the competition scene. A lot of top paddlers are choosing Black Project over their board sponsor's paddles.
The Infinity x Black Project Paddle range can be broken down into 3 key models, the Whiplash, Flash and Quick Strike.
Infinity Whiplash Paddle
This is the all round performance model. It is a premium paddle built in 90% 3k carbon and 10% glass. This design is based on the popular Black Project Lava paddle.
It comes in a single blade size (84sq inches) at 10 degrees, and 3 shaft options. There is the fixed length 1 piece, an adjustable 2 piece, and a travel 3 piece. The travel version comes in a bag. This is a versatile option for someone who does a bit of everything from surfing to recreational racing.

Infinity Flash Paddle
This is an all out World Class performance race paddle. The blade is much squarer in shape to the Whiplash and also longer and narrower. Based on the Black Project Hydro paddle, this design has race pedigree.
It comes in two blade sizes and two shaft thicknesses. It is only available as a fixed length shaft.

Infinity Quick Strike Paddle
This is the SUP Surf paddle, but also works great for foiling. It is all about high cadence sprinting, and then bracing. Whilst you could use this paddle for any discipline, the tear drop shaped blade really performs when surfing. This is based off the Black Project Surge paddle.
It comes in two blade sizes and is only available in the fixed length slim shaft. This provides a flex which feels great in the surf, and also improved grip.
