This is my fourth SUP paddle. The only one where I notice a difference in power. The blade sounds more melodic than a Werner in the water. The WatermanC4 is a bit lighter though nowhere near as stable. The cam lock is a bit more solid than the spring buttons used by Werner and Waterman. Though it takes the torque of the sawyer tool to get it solid. Using a stubby flat bade I could not get it tight enough to take all of the wobble out. The bag it comes with works great.
Beautiful paddle! Great quality. Shipped quickly and arrived well-packaged.
