Review: Score: 4.9. This paddle is beautiful, lightweight and strong. After a few minutes of use it felt like an old friend. I was a bit disappointed in the bumpy varnish finish. For that I deduct 0.1 point.

Review: Used them a couple of times and loved them. Only owned cheap feather weights and these are 100x better. Really not that much more if you are going to use them a couple times a year.

Review: So glad BB makes a paddle that's lighter than the Expedition and more durable than the Arrow. That weight/durability tradeoff makes it a really nice tripping paddle for easy whitewater. I don't use the Explorer much for weekend runs where my stiffer stronger fiberglass Werner can take a lot of abuse. But on a long trip when I want the feel of a wood paddle--the warmth, the flex, the slicing profile--day in and day out, this is a honey.
