For the price ($28.99), I doubt there is a better paddle out there. These paddles are not fancy, but they certainly do the trick and I have no complaints whatsoever. The grips are great- my hands have never hurt, and I've appreciated being able to take them apart while I'm carrying my boat. It makes storage easier. I like to kayak rivers and occasionally scrape rocks or the bottom, and these have been fine. I'm glad they are not so fancy I'm worried about losing them or scratching them.
Well worth the price! My friends also have these and have said they work well. They float, but can collect some water inside (my friends said), so just don't leave them submerged too long. If you do, just let them dry out.
