Bought this paddle on a great sale from ACK. I had looked at the Werner carbon paddles for some time not seeing what all the fuss was about (my plastic/carbon Aquabound was holding up quite well). I decided to give this a try and I am VERY happy. The paddle slices ever so nicely on cross-draws and when feathering the blade. Looking forward to seeing how well this paddle will hold up on the rocks...I do think it will wear a bit quicker and needs a little more care then a AB plastic/carbon or even the Werner fiberglass paddle. Time will tell!
Paddle is light, stiff, feathers nicely, has a good catch, makes nice draw strokes. Purchase through Austin Kayak was painless, simple, and delivery was quick.
