Rated 4 out of 5 by Yatz Try it out
This is a good option for new kayakers or as a back up for the more experienced. Ive been kayaking for six years and while not being a novice im no professional. I started out on the water with one of these and really enjoyed it. Fiberglass fins and aluminum shaft make for a pretty light paddle. I am not easy on my paddles and these have held up year after year. For more experienced paddlers I would recommend this as your back up paddle and choose a carbon fiber one for your main paddle. Happy paddling everyone!

I've tried this paddle out in calm bays/salt marshes and in more challenging conditions on open water and was very pleased with it's light weight and responsive handling. Great value!

I was told by an employee that I needed to buy the carbon paddle since there was a tighter fit at the joint. I went for the cheaper aluminum paddle and am totally satisfied. Shaking it back and forth in the store it does a bit of clicking, but on the river and on the lake I never noticed it. A wrap of electrical tape would stop the clicking if it really bothers you. I paddled for two hours on the first day and it worked out well.
