Rated 2 out of 5 by Friend65 Beautiful Paddle Suitable for Mounting
This paddle is beautiful and well shaped. Unfortunately, it is very delicate. I used it on a lake where it was not exposed to harsh conditions - rocks, salt water, etc. I notice in the first week of use that the blade edge was chipping and the wood veneer was beginning to delaminate. I was the only person to use the paddle and could not remember it rubbing or banging it against anything. Just normal board contact. LL Bean was great and allowed me exchange for an all fiberglass bladed paddle. Very happy now.

I purchased a BIC adjustable paddle before this, but the locking system was a little loose which resulted in some play in the handle. The lock on this paddle is a lot tighter and the handle does not move once its locked. So the paddle has a more one piece feel to it.
