This is a really nice, basic paddle. Well made, perfect for recreational use. Nicer than many more expensive paddles available. I would recommend for the casual kayaker without hesitation!
I got this paddle with the Tarpon 100 package. This was the only part of the package that I was a little disappointed with. The paddle doesn't feel too durable and I am reluctant to push off of the river bottom with it. The price is right though. I'm going to keep it as a spare in my boat because it is small and lightweight, but I am planning on purchasing a nicer paddle.
Bending Branches Whisper Dream Paddle. Background, Kayak newbie. So after much kayak research I chose the Perception Sound 10.5 but I didn't do a lot of research on paddles. I picked the BB paddle from the reviews here on ACK and felt this would be a good choice. Don't get me wrong it is a good tough paddle. I have pushed off and hit numerous rocks and such with nothing but some scratches. My negative is that it seems to take more energy to move my Sound. My GF has another paddle brand which has a bit larger blade and a flatter face giving it more bite and thus what I feel is a more efficient paddle stroke. The BB I feel is a good entry level paddle for a recreation kayaker not hauling around a bunch of fishing gear.
Really nice lightweight paddle. Works well for me.
