Paddles commonly used in [[canoe]]s consist of a [[wood]]en, [[fibreglass]], [[Carbon fibre reinforced plastic|carbon fibre]] or [[metal]] rod (the ''shaft'') with a handle on one end and a rigid sheet (the ''blade'') on the other end. Paddles for use in [[kayak]]s are longer, with a blade on each end; they are handled from the middle of the shaft.
