Rated 5 out of 5 by NewYakAddict Terrific paddle!
I am a new kayaker, but, I can't imagine a better paddle unless it was weightless and paddled itself. Strong, powerful, and looks better than I do in my kayak.

No, it's not a "Top Notch" Paddle, nor it is a NASA rated Carbon Kevlar paddle, But for the price, it's one of the best out there. (Ratio Quality/Price)
For that price, it is a very good deal indeed and will propel you quite well.
Excellent for kids, beginners or Sunday Paddlers.
Now, As I use that on a Canoe too, I need a Shaft Extender. Does anyone knows where to get one? Please? Anyone?
As side note(s)
1) I ordered online (from a LL Bean Store as the paddle was not in stock) a Tuesday at 6pm and received the package Thursday. That's fast shipping! Thank you Mr LLBean
2) The LL Bean employee (Kevin) that served me at the Dedham Store, went well above and beyond the call of duty to help me and was *extremely* helpful, kind and patient. I cannot stress enough that it was a real pleasure to shop there.
Dear Mr LL Bean, you should give that guy a pat on the shoulder, and pass along my warmest and most sincere thanks.
Rest assured that I will go back and shop again.

I kayak around the lakes in Western North Carolina. This paddle is perfect for me, light, comfortable, easy to break down and assemble. I can't imagine spending more for a recreational paddle, and the Magic Paddle is surely the best price for a paddle of this quality.

Have not ever used a better paddle, especially at this price! The fact that it breaks down into two parts made storage and transport a breeze with no effect on effectiveness.

While I wouldn't call this my dream paddle it's an affordable way to get yourself on the water without spending an arm and a leg...or hurting your arms too much!

Being my first kayak paddle I don't have anything to compare it to. However, my observations are that it is durable, not too heavy, and has a good color. The shaft can be locked into a straight or angled blade choice so I have no complaints!

I just had a chance to use the Carlisle Magic Paddle this weekend. Nice handling, lightweight and good size paddles. Moves lots of water with ease.

I'm new to kayaking and had originally bought a bundle that came with the paddle. The paddle that my bundle came with wasn't too great, so I purchased the Carlisle Magic Paddle. I used it for the first time this past weekend and thought it was great! It's not heavy, I didn't get any blisters, and it made a huge difference on the water. I felt like I didn't have to work as hard to paddle compared to my other one. If you are looking for a starter paddle, this one will work.
