Took me a while to figure out how to position the two ends which are adjustable, but after that, what a great paddle. Anyone can use it, its lightweight, and I love the orange color so people in boats dont have a problem seeing me!
Purchased this thinking the ability to adjust would be a plus. The problem I've had is that on occasion the shafts rotate while in white water. I find myself trying to get it to lock down at the most inopportune time. Works fine on flat water. I'm now in the market for a new paddle and suppose I'll use this one as a backup, hoping that never becomes necessary. I do not recommend purchasing this product.
Unbeatable paddle, esp at this pricepoint. Once adjusted to your liking, absolutely NO free play or "wonkiness" in the connection between paddle halves. Both the telescopic and feather lock in tight as a drum. I hope that the adjustment charts last a long time before fading, etc, and, that the cam lock is sturdy enough for years of use. Paddles easy and effectively. I give this paddle a easy 5/5.
I liked the Bending Branches Slice paddle. The mechanism for adjusting length was handy. The grips felt good.
