Write a review for Advanced Elements Axis 4-Part Breakdown Kayak Paddle
*Please Note: Both colors and patterns are for general reference only. Colors may vary from computer to computer.
I was really happy when I bought my Advanced Elements Axis Breakdown Paddle when I took my trip to Washington to visit Beacon Rock. I took a survival backpack and my kayak stayed locked up to a tree in my campsite. I also brought along a little whitewater boat that I took places my car wouldn’t go. Because my paddle was collapsible and fit in my backpack, my hike was painless and the ride was great.
I bought this paddle as a spare. I have not actually paddled
with it yet. I like its portability and light weight. I was not
impressed by the workmanship. The pieces fit loosely
together and on one of the end pieces, the fiberglass wraps
were delaminating. I covered all of the ends with a few
wraps of duct tape to tighten the fit and prevent further
delamination. I paddle hard for many hours at a time and
am skeptical that the paddle would survive with such loose
fittings. It should suffice as a back-up paddle.
I bought this paddle to be my
spare. It's a real gem! Of
course, it's not as light as a
Werner CF, but it isn't $450,
either! That said, it is a very
light paddle, and it breaks
down as you want it, either 2
or four pieces. Shaft is a good
length for most paddlers, so
you can lend it to someone in
your group if needed. Blades
are also well designed and
executed. Shipped quickly
from ACK. Great merchant!
Love this paddle so much I bought
2 of them. Lightweight with a nice
color combination & a 4 piece
break down to boot.
First, kudos to ACK for prompt shipping. Arrived
just as promised.
Regarding the paddle.. :-(
I do need a four piece paddle, so I know my
choices are limited.
This one is heavy! Perhaps I'm spoiled from the
carbon fiber paddles I'm used to, but ick. And it
clocks in 4 oz, heavier than advertised.
The quality is generally fine. However one of the
holes is misdrilled and it won't reach the spring-
load button lock. So the shaft won't lock and the
paddle is useless until I either re-drill the hole or
cut back the end of the pole about 3/4". Either
way, not what I've experienced with any other
Mike, give us a call and we will either swap this out with a new one or help you choose one of the many other 4 piece paddles available.
Who needs a paddle that breaks
down into four parts for easy
transport? You do! So much
easier to store and carry than
even two-piece paddles. Never
worry about having to borrow a
paddle on any trip, just bring
yours with you.
This paddle is great. I need
a paddle that would breakdown
in 4 pieces for easy handling
in a back pack during
adventure races. This does
the trick. It is light, stiff
and efficient. The paddle
surfaces are large but not
unwieldy. The only thing I
would have liked to see is the
center pieces be exactly the
same length. They are
slightly different and for me
that sometimes makes it a bit
harder to pack. Little thing
and not a big deal.
would highly recommend if you
need a paddle to fit in
