I bought this paddle to go...

I bought this paddle to go with my Jackson Kayak Cruise 12 and so far it has performed admirably. The option to feather the blades either left hand or right hand is great. The paddle seems to be quite strong, I was able to push of from rocks/stumps/trees, etc. without fear of the paddle breaking. The fact that it comes with drip rings included is a nice bonus, So is the ovalish handle, very comfortable, The only part i feel could be considered "sub-par" is the sorta-rubberized grip that comes on the shaft. It got nicked up almost immediately. But that is a minor issue. and by no means a deal-breaker. I also with it were available in hi-vis colors. I wouldn't mind some nice green blades. But that doesn't detract from the performance, which has been great.

I bought the KPA at...

I bought the KPA at Cabelas for $70. It is 230cm and replaced a No Limits Torrent (220). I noticed a large difference in the amount of propulsion that I can achieve from each stroke. The weight is light, especially for an aluminum paddle. Both hands are oval shaped, instead of just the right side which seems to be popular for some reason. The blades do give a little in the water, I'm assuming that is the design of it. My wife switched me paddles once while we were out and paddling around, then she left me floating in the wake with her more expensive Field and Stream paddle. We went immediately to Cabelas and purchased another one, for her.

This paddle is great and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The older KPAs had some issues with the connection breaking, but they have since redesigned them and they are allegedly very strong now, I've had it in the water for around 6-7 Hours and have noticed no issues with it.
