Rated 4 out of 5áby AntisocialOctopus good purchase
It's a good paddle and I got it for a great price. The only issue I ran into has nothing to do with the paddle itself; it was backordered a few weeks. Otherwise, it's sturdy and comfortable to paddle with for several hours without issue. If they come up on sale, I'll most likely get another.

My first paddle...only thing I would like to see is a cushiony area where you're hand grips the bar... I'll have to see if a paddle is available or an attachment.

Rated 4 out of 5áby BerksCoOutdoorsman Fit needed tweaking
On first inspection, the two sections would not quite snap together. A minute's worth of tweaking with a file allowed the two sections to couple as intended. On the water, the paddle functioned as expected, and the price fits perfectly as well.

Rated 4 out of 5áby swerdna just a little more reach
This is a good paddle, and one of the few 'affordable' paddles available in a 240. That extra ten centimeters makes a big difference in paddling a wide kayak. My old 230 is a fine paddle, but I would bump it on the gunwales a lot. That's not an issue with the whisper. It's solid and light, and helps me move right along.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WyomingJoyce Very efficient paddle
I received my canoe paddle on Saturday and used it the next day for a five-hour canoe trip. The middle and front rowers used canoe paddles while the back rower used the kayak paddle. The paddle is sturdy, easy to take apart, and efficient in the water.

Rated 5 out of 5áby AuntDill great deal!
I bought this paddle for my nephew. My brother borrowed it and was so impressed, I got one for his birthday. Neither are big shoppers: when they are impressed its a great product! The LLBean folks applied the 10% discount even though, I bought it one day earlier. A great product and great customer service are hard to beat. The paddle works as well as a much more expensive one. If you have a fairly wide kayak, get the 240cm, the additional length and stiff blades really make paddling easier and more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby nyrobee2000 Title describes the product clearly.
My wife has a Bending Branches Whisper paddle, so when I said I was looking for a new paddle, she said I should get this one. I ordered it and received it much more quickly than expected. It is light and easy to use. Great paddle from a great company!

Rated 4 out of 5áby DweezDiesel Great light weight basic paddle
I grew up paddling with old wood paddles that leave splinters and blisters. For this reason, I thought it wise to buy a good, standard paddle from a reputed brand rather than a cheaper make. Also, I did not see any reason to buy an expensive model, since all a recreational paddler really needs is a lightweight and drama free paddle. So my wife and I tried the Whisper on the Hudson and they propel us fast and far. Perfect paddle for us, but I give it 4 stars since it does not include more advanced features.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Baddogwilson Great Paddle
I love this paddle,but when deciding between the 230 or 240 size it said it would fit fine with my Kayak that is 31 1/2 inches wide, but the 4 more inches on the 240 paddle would have been better. I am happy with this paddle it works great in the water and is very light and durable. I would definitely order another one if I needed a second paddle.
