After just one day on the water, it is evident that we got a great deal. First off, they are visually beautiful with a black fiber weave that makes them look like the carbon fiber paddles all your rich friends are using at less than half the price. Secondly, they feel great. The bent handles make the paddle move naturally through the water. After several hours, my hands felt fine, which was not what I had expected after a rented bent paddle gave my blisters after just 30 minutes. Third, the price was very reasonable, especially for such a good paddle. Fourth, it still has all the standard features such as adjustable feathering which is important as I like my paddle feathered, but my wife does not.
In my opinion, it is a great alternative to the more costly Werners which I have noticed seem to present a variety of problems.
