This was the first paddle I ever bought. I still have and use it. For a relatively low cost paddle it's really quite good. Sure there are better, but you'll have to spend a lot more to see any appreciable improvement in performance or weight reduction. It has been discontinued. I would not hesitate to buy or recommend another Aqua-Bound paddle.

This paddle is a bit narrower than the Aqua-bound sequel, which is also reviewed on this site. I often paddle solo in my Old Town Loon 160-T which is an 80lb recreational kayak. My usual trip is 6 hours (3 hours upstream, and 3 hours down). I find this paddle to be quite easy to use and am quite happy with it. The narrower paddle face reduces the effort needed to move the boat.

I have often taken this paddle apart, and it still fits together tightly with no wobble. I have often had to use the paddle to push the boat off gravel shoals, and in other abusive ways. It still looks great and shows virtually no wear.

For the money, I rate it a 10.
