Making Paddles since 1989 Quickblade products are the natural evolution of paddle performance founded on years of competitive racing by Jim Terrell. Jim’s paddling career began in southwest Ohio on the Little Miami River near his hometown of Milford. The signature feature of all Quickblade paddles is excellent performance. A quick catch at the beginning and a clean exit at the end of the stroke prompted the name Quickblade. Only after determining the ultimate requirements for performance, was the compromise of strength, durability, lightweight and cost addressed.
Quickblade is the brainchild of Jim Terrell, a four time Olympic Canoeist (in fact, he has endless National and International awards and titles). His passion for building the finest competition paddles began at the ripe age of 11 in his father’s garage in Milford, Ohio.
To this day, Jim is obsessed with hydrodynamics and has decades of experience with scientifically testing paddle mechanics and strain gage force analysis, and has an extensive background in composite technology applications. In layman’s terms, the more Jim puts into it, the more you’ll get out of it.
