I've been using it for the past two months (October and November) in wildly variable conditions on Lake Erie. I find it to be rock-solid and very refined- and far lighter than any wooden Greenland paddle. You can vary your paddling resistance by simply dipping shallower, and you can pull with massive force by going deeper and varying your angle. You can reverse instantly. I will never go back to a European paddle again! The replaceable tips are a MAJOR, plus, too. I cannot recommend it enough!

When I assembled the new item I found it had squeaky noises at the joint, like a cracked bamboo pole sound when there was any movement. I contacted Gearlab and was provided a replacement after sending a video of the problem. Tried paddling at sea recently and because of the wider tip, there’s more power per stroke which has to be managed to prevent rapid fatigue. The shoulderless Shaft is good and prevents fatigue at the base of the thumbs over long distances.
Beautifully designed, balanced and light. Perfect hand feel.

I received my Kalleq 220 paddle two months ago, went in with a group and we ordered how paddles through North Pender Island paddle shop, this is by far the best paddle I ever owned. it is a dream to paddle with, I can not believe the pull that I get, its great for all my moves and lots of buoyancy I would recommend the Kalleq to all.
