Adjusting the paddle is a breeze and takes mere seconds to adjust. Having a choice of paddle heads is also a major plus.
So far pretty good to use, very handy to pack. Easy handling, easy length adjustment. Two issues: (1) The metal parts that keep the fiberglass elements to click together is very prone to rust in salt water. After only 3 uses and regular fresh-water rinse after each the metal spring/buttons in the bottom part (paddle) rusted beyond cleaning. (2) The paint on the paddle scrapes easily when in contact in sand... again, after only few uses and relatively careful handling on a sandy beach the paddle already looks pretty worn out.
