Simply placing the ASSAULT Hand Paddle between your legs, or within easy reach, provides immediate access to a simple propulsion mode. You will never have to let loose of your fishing rod, camera, hunting gear or lose sight of moving prey. A few stealthy strokes from the ASSAULT and you are back on target.

I ordered the Assault Hand Paddle so that I wouldn’t need to handle my kayak paddle when I just needed a small adjustment while fishing. This is a handy and powerful paddle. I have practiced actually powering my 16-ft kayak with it alone, and it is possible using it in the same manner as a single blade canoe paddle. So, if I should lose my regular paddle in the water, I am still good to go! The assault paddle is also helpful for grabbing hold of a branch or root in order to retrieve a lure or change speed/direction quickly. The design is rugged, durable and floatable. A great tool to have next to me in the kayak!
It's small, sturdy, easy to use, and does it's job as a lightweight alternative to a big paddle when I'm fishing and want to stay in one spot. It's also a great back up paddle if I somehow drop my regular paddle... (I haven't done it since I bought this, but one of the reasons I bought it was because I DID drop my paddle and had to get a friend to retrieve it as it floated away).
Good mixture of performance and price.
The other advantage to this paddle is if you get snagged you can just use this little guy to paddle over there and not have to mess with a big paddle while holding your pole and pulling on it the same time as you are paddling. Also once you get over there, you can just tug on the line to free it with the hook.
This paddle has a great design, and is very useful! I think you should check it out. Anything that can making fishing more enjoyable is a win win situation for me.
