Its called 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 airchraft grade billet aluminum. A solid 1/4″ thick – its virtually indestructable. Approx 12″ long overall.
