this is a great paddle, successor to a Zaveral which I managed to wedge between two rocks and break.
the paddle is -first, quite light, there fore reducing energy output esp. over a long day on the water. Two, it handles nicely without flutter or turbulence. It is well finished, as expected from a Wenonah product. The price is in line with other premium paddles. I give it a 10!

I have used this paddle on three BWCA Trips. Overall the paddle is extremely light, surprisingly durable(no I dont push off rocks with it). As a 6' 215 lb 41 year old male I feel like the blade is a bit undersized for what seems to be a guide style paddle. I give my measurements and age as I think we all have different expectations on a paddle. I do agree that the lighter paddle causes less fatigue on a long day of paddling. I have been using the paddle to push a fully loaded wenonah champlain so perhaps its the higher resistence that makes me feel the blade is undersized. I suspect for a lightweight ultralight touring canoe the blade may be ideal and then demanding a 5 star review.
