This is a good choice for a back-up paddle. It gives you the option of easy to stow 4 part breakdown, or assembling two half sections for faster access. It is strong enough for all but extreme use, has pretty solid joints, and some feathering to the blade. The cons are that it's pretty heavy and the blades are a bit small. All in all, I think its worth the money for a back-up.
Nice size, packs good. But very difficult to separate the two straight pieces.
Expensive, but fits through my 6.5" Ocean Kayak Malibu 2 hatch to stow inside my boat. Had to use it first time I took it, saved my behind. Fit seemed tight (good) to me. Wished it had feathered blades, but oh well.
good paddle for a spare or in case I need one for my Slayer 13 in shallow water.
