The paddle is perfect for beginners that have to find the good lenth for their stroke and so the adjusting makes it perfect. It is a little heavier comparing to the fiber or carbon composite ones and that makes a difference in fatigue. But it is a good compromise quality/price. Thank you
A little on the heavy side. Otherwise, well built and functional.
Definitely heavier than fiber paddle. Also, completely forgot to make sure that it wouldn't sink prior to purchase - it will. Floats for a few seconds but then heads to the bottom. Paddle comes with some foam in the shaft, but not enough to keep it afloat. Going to spray expanding foam in and see if that helps! Not a bad paddle for the very low price, but if it goes to the bottom, that's money wasted.
The paddle does not pretend to be something fancy. But it works great and since it is two piece you can easily transport it inside of your vehicle. If you are predominantly using it as a flat water paddle board paddle it is as good as any.
