Purchased 250cm version to complement new AirPro Max seat for a WS Ride. The added length (up from 230cm) met all expectations in terms of greater propulsion from a perched seating position. This purchase was also an upgrade from the BB aluminum angler classic that I had used for years. It is a light, comfortable upgrade but can't say that I've experienced a noticeable difference in energy requirements to use either aluminum or carbon fiber over the course of an all day or all week paddle.
The feature I like most about this paddle is the weight. How light it is has to be the biggest advantage over the cheaper paddles. I was a bit hesitant about spending the money, but am glad I did. I also like the size of the blades, big enough to to move into casting position easily, but not cumbersome.
