The AT River Glass Kayak Paddle has the N6 matrix shaft of the AT Play, but also has substantially larger dihedral blades to maximize each stroke and maintain flutter-free performance. The River Glass features an ergonomic fiberglass shaft and a large blade that is durable and versatile, allowing carefree paddling in shallow, boney creeks or any condition you encounter on the river. This paddle is unparalleled on small creeks where rocks may prevent full purchase or on big, pushy water where every stroke is critical. It is the proven leader in its class for strength weight and performance, all thanks to N6 technology. Discontinued paddle.

Best paddle for the money! It really is amazing how much better it feels than a strait shaft. Little concerned with the durability of the paddle blades. The blades do not flutter at all.
Not my favorite paddle as it does not have very good grip. To make it worse, the water runs down the handle when you paddle. Some rubber drip stoppers should be included with this paddle.
I have this paddle for 4 years or so and bought another one of the same kind for my kid. The paddle is relatively heavy, and many of my friends frown when I give it to them to try out. I like the geometry of both the paddle and the bent shaft. Also I go creeking with this paddle and so far it proved pretty solid. Buy it if you want an inexpensive paddle for demanding rocky rivers and are willing to tolerate higher weight.
Overall I like this paddle. It certainly is a little on the heavy side but for the price, I am more than happy to carry a little bit more weight in exchange for the cost savings. I did not think I would notice the difference in the "15%" bigger blades but I surely do. the bite a little more than my last paddle did. I would recommend this to someone who i looking for a good all around paddle.
