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.
Excellent products from Bending Branches. I use the Glass Plus (215 to 230) to paddle a 12 ft. Bell Bucktail canoe. I carry a Slice 280 as a backup (in case unforcasted winds make single paddling too difficult) in an Explorer 16. Other Bending Branches I have and use; Arrow, Java 11 and Beavertail. Excellent products and customer service.
I liked the Bending Branches Slice paddle. The mechanism for adjusting length was handy. The grips felt good.
