I try to treat it with respect (like a fine tool) but it has not been overly 'babied' or often left home in the closet. Sporting narrower touring blades (18” long x 6 3/8” width) it doesn’t get as big a “bite” in the water as paddles with wider dimensions. However, it has a very low swing weight (mine weighs 24 oz tip to tip) and potentially delivers a faster cadence if and when speed is desired. Like any individual paddle it will not suit every conceivable condition (like surf zones, white water, or sprint racing) but I heartily recommend one for regular exploration.
As mentioned by others here the seat could be more comfortable (maybe some foam will help,) and it is by design a low volume boat (so it is not ideal for carrying a lot of gear) despite it's size.
Overall I am quite impressed with it.
