We named our new paddle the "Tentacle" paddle because everyone we showed it to said it reminded them of Octopus tentacle, so we went with it. This paddle is very unique as it has rubber inserts that leave a truly unique pattern on the receiving subject. No denying when you've misbehaved and been reprimanded by the Tentacle Paddle. Machined from solid aircraft grade billet aluminum. A solid 1/4" thick, its virtually indestructible. Approx 12" long overall. Comes with removable black rubber handle cover.
