Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolinaChris Perfect for our needs
Purchased this paddle for safety equipment on our 16' Carolina Skiff. It's perfect for helping to maneuver in and out of a tricky boat launch. Very sturdy and compact. The T handle makes blade control a breeze! I'm really surprised to have gotten such a quality product at a reasonable price.

I wanted paddles for my canoe that didn't cost an arm and a leg. You need both arms to use correctly. They are light weight and just what you need to skim across the water. The name is right as the gold does reflect in the sun light. With proper care I am sure they will last well in to my golden years. Oh, are they here already?

Rated 3 out of 5 by bentknee Did not buy a second needed paddle
I read the reviews warning of the loose rubber grips. Since the paddle was back ordered, I thought that problem would have been fixed. It was not. 2nd outing, rubber came loose. I applied gorilla glue under the rubber. I don't know, yet, if this is a permanent fix. Paddle is not usuable with the loose rubber.

Compared to our older plastic paddles, this paddle is better looking and lighter weight and nicer to use when canoeing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DMO1 Up a stream, without a paddle!
Cushioned shaft grip came unglued after the first time being used. I purchase two of these paddles.Both of the paddles cushioned shaft grip came unglued. Difficulty paddling when the cushion slides up and down the shaft.
The paddle is very lightweight and easy to handle for younger children.

We purchased 2 canoe paddles. I am taller than my wife and I felt the paddles should be sizes. Not knowing what size to order I asked the question and LLBean has a chart based on the person's height. They were extremely helpful.

This oar is very light and easy to use...doesn't tire you out. We bought it with the Saranac 146 Canoe and it works great. We were out for an hour in fairly choppy water and I did not get tired at all. My son used as well and did great.
