I sold it a month later as I found it to be way too heavy for long paddles and it aggravated my bursitis. I bought a Greenland paddle to replace it - although my choice for a euro paddle would have been an Onno because they are 12oz less weight and made to tighter tolerances. Keep trying, you will get it right Lendal..
