I have had this paddle for almost a year now. At first, I was concerned that the fiberglass blades would not be able to handle the abuse that my Bending Branches Angler classic (plastic blades) took. But i have found that to not be the case. Its been well used in rough rocky rivers and it has held up great, it is a very well made and i expect many years of service. This thing is light at 27.5 oz. I'm not sore at the end of a long day like i was with my old paddles. It is truly a good value at this price considering how light it is. Do some "weight to price" comparing on other paddles and you will see what I mean. Overall I couldn't be happier, highly recommend.
Wow, I didn't know a paddle could make such a difference. I upgraded from my starter kayak to a Cuda LT and realized my 230cm paddle was too short. I was using a Carlisle Magic Plus and it seemed like a reasonably decent paddle. Comparatively the Shuna is virtually the same blade shape as my Magic Plus. In my hands the Shuna felt lighter especially on the ends. On the water I felt the difference immediately. This paddle is incredibly light and moving up to a 240cm paddle in the Cuda LT made a big difference. Until now I never understood why people spent $200+ on paddles, now I do. I would definitely recommend this paddle.
