The Carlisle Taboo Stand Up Paddle lets you paddle your stand up board, but easily converts to a kayak paddle too. This versatile two-in-one paddle includes two T-grip handles which let you adjust the length based on your height. It also features a second blade which allows you to easily convert the stand up paddle into a 230 cm kayak paddle. Stand up or sit down and paddle, the Taboo SUP paddle helps you do both.

I bought this Carlisle Taboo Stand Up Paddle to use in my stand-up fishing kayak. Works great for poling. Its a little on the heavy side for long time paddling. Made solid.
Like others, I got this for my Versa board SUP/SOT. It is an inexpensive solution to buying two dedicated paddles and it works reasonably well. I do wish that the connection was a little more firm, when I have the paddle end installed it wiggles in place a bit. Also FYI, it does not come with drip rings, so you will have to buy them separately if you don't want wet arms while in SOT mode.
LOVE IT!! Can meander down the river on my SUP, and then quickly get ready for white water!!
Simply too heavy. I bought a lightweight wooden Greenland Paddle that works very well as a stand up paddle and kayak paddle.
