Crystal-X 2.0 (Bent Shaft) Reviews
I cannot say enough good…
I cannot say enough good things about my Crystal X 2.0 bent shaft paddle at 220cm. I was lucky enough to buy out a kayak outfitter in 2021, and that sale came with over 20 high-end European paddles from makers like VE and Select. Kind of the "Werners of Europe". I received my H2O paddle about 3 days before that purchase. For the last 9 months, I have paddled everything that VE and Select has to offer. I've also paddled the H2O. Although the VE and Select paddles had adjustable length sizing (the only win over the H2O), I have ended up using the H2O as my go-to paddle. As a person with larger hands, the ovalized grips and the larger circumference shaft of the H2O has really sold it for me. Also, the ease of use of the center mating adjustment is just worlds beyond all of the other paddle manufacturers I've used. That includes Werner. I also owned a straight shaft Crystal X 1.0 for almost 5 years before upgrading. Listen....I beat the stuffing out of that paddle and it was good as new when I sold it to upgrade. I paddled with the guy who bought it from me just tonight and it is still going strong. These paddles are exceptional. The center mating mechanism is the best on any paddle I have ever used. Being able to adjust feather without flipping open a toggle is not a "thing" I have ever witnessed on any other paddle. It was also the "thing" that also made me not want to buy this paddle years ago with the 1.0. I thought that, surely, I'm going to accidentally adjust the paddle with forces from paddling. But...that actually never happened. Not even once.
This paddle is amazing and sets a new standard, particularly in the center mating mechanism.

Not only is it gorgeous but it paddles like a dream, and very little if any water runs down the shaft (I've had not paddle drip in the boat since using it). I may have to guard this paddle with my life so no one else in the house tries to steal it on me.
