As as serious tournament angler, I have four kayak paddles and the one I use the most when kayak fishing is the Angler Pro, it is the ultimate paddle for anglers. Other than the kayak itself and life jacket, your paddle is the next most important equipment for a serious angler.
Having a very large and heavy fishing kayak, I need all 104 square inches of paddle surface area to efficiently move my boat at a good speed with little effort. The T-700 Carbon shaft also helps shoulder and joint fatigue with it's light weight and subtle flex while paddling. The paddle itself is nearly indestructible and I've got no worries about it making it through any situation.
If you fish big lakes or large rivers with a lot of big boats, I really like the high visibility of the Sea Green color for safety. If stealth or looking tough is your thing, check out the Camo or RealTree Max 5 color schemes.
I use it with a Kruger boat solo canoe so it does receive a fair amount of abuse from rocks, logs and sandbars. Although a rather expensive pushstick/prybar, It has performed admirably. The length, light weight, L or R preset locking blade angles and blade design make both high and low angle paddling a delight with touring or fishing kayaks as well as a low slug solo canoe. Although a skeptic and proud user of inexpensive, whatever is available paddles for years, I simply love the light weight and design of quality equipment. Do yourself a favor and start with quality!
This paddle is simple, light weight, straight forward quality you will enjoy for years!!!
