This is my second AT2 Flexi. I sold the first one with a kayak I sold about six months ago. VERY BAD MISTAKE. After using another brand of paddle (and hating life) I just bought another AT2 Flexi from ACK. It has been like finding an old friend. It simply feels right in my hands and I paddle better with it. Absolutely worth the price.
The AT2 is the first serious whitewater paddle I ever had. This means I used it throughout my kayaking career. There are three important things about the AT2 that lets it stand apart from other paddles in my opinion. The three traits are how light it is, how easy stokes are, and the way the bent shaft is designed. It is an easy paddle for beginners to use because of how light it is. I never had to worry about my arms getting tired when I paddled with it. I took the AT2 on the middle and lower gauley and I really noticed throughout the day how my arms felt the same as they did when I put on. In December of 2013 I traveled to Chile. Chile was the perfect place to test this paddle on tighter creeks, as well as bigger waterfalls. I noticed how responsive the blade shape was when I was on these creeks. It was very easy to take multiple strokes quickly. As my stroke finished, no effort was required to take the paddle out of the water and ready it for another stroke. This characteristic also allowed for the quick unplanned boof strokes that I ended up needing sometimes. The last of the traits is the way the shaft is bent. In 2012 I broke my wrist snowboarding and since then my wrist has hurt while I kayak. However, when I was using the AT2, my wrist never hurts. This can be attributed to the bent shaft. The way it is bent feels very natural when paddling. Unlike other brands, the AT2 is bent only in one spot along the grip unlike the "v" grip. This allows for no power lost, as well as maximum comfort. These are some reasons why the Adventure Technology AT2 paddle stands out from other paddles. I loved the AT2 paddle and was very sad to lose it when I took swim. Thanks for reading.
