I used my new 280 cm Slice Glass Solo to power my 16 ft ABS Mad River Explorer 700 miles from Eagle Plains in northern Yukon to the Dalton Highway in Alaska. The paddle performed exemplary and was especially invaluable against many days of headwinds. After 50 years of paddling exclusively with a single blade, I am now a convert to using a double blade to move a heavily loaded canoe against the wind. The flex in the paddle matched my strength and style perfectly and produced repeated days of smooth comfortable efficient power. Thanks also to ACK for great service.

Love the length of the 280 cm paddle, (the real measurement 9' 2") and I think once I work out a technique for it will be completely happy with it. However, a quality control issue occurred while using the paddle. Both paddles unglued from the shaft and hade to be re-positioned often in order to finish the paddle. What ever it is the folks building the paddles are using to glue the paddle into the ends of shaft they need to switch to something else. I repaired my paddle using a urethane based adhesive and those babies are in and tight now. Otherwise I think I'm going to like using this paddle with my Mohawk Odessey solo boat. So much easier to paddle and control, very powerful in fact.

5'9" and 260cm perfect length that allows me to sit and paddle my Northstar solo canoe. This paddle is so efficient and comfortable to use. There is some give to the paddle vs a wooden paddle and some spring back at the end of the powerstroke. I like this feel and it seems to lessen fatigue. You will get more wet than a standard paddle and this may bother some but not me. The biggest thing I notice is that I have much more control of my canoe with a double blade than single and now prefer this much more. Finally, the ability to breakdown the paddle into two shorter pieces is great and really facilitates storage.
