I HAVE USED IT TWICE IN THE BWCA AND WORKS VERY WELL. NICE AND LIGHTWEIGHT AND CAN ALSO TAKE ON SOME GOOD LICKS FROM THE ROCKS.
I love this paddle. I just spent a week in the Boundary Water Canoe Area with it. It has a bit more weight to it than my Espresso, but I didn't even notice. Also, the extra bend made for a nice stroke along the canoe. Lastly, the size of the blade made it possible to grab a lot of water at once to really move our canoe along. It came in very handy when we were in windy conditions.
