I have two Onno paddles. IMO, they are the best paddles money can buy. I called Patrick and he asked all my dimensions, my kayak dimensions, what type of paddling I do and lots of other questions. We had a 15 minute conversation about feathering alone. When we were done, he made me a beautiful one piece 230cm Carbon Fiber paddle with an oversized shaft (for my large hands) and medium blades with extra lay-up on the tips (because I told him that I can be rough on my paddles) set at 75 degrees of feathering. All that delivered to my house for about $220. As long as he's still making paddles, I'll never go anywhere else.
