Love this paddle! Gives good strong strokes and it is solid enough for me to not worry about it snapping like my old one.

I havent tried my 200 cm in much other than a down river run. The blade is light and so reduces fatigue. The blade doesnt seem to flutter. This is at least a great basic paddle.

This is a very good paddle. I paddle whitewater extensively--KY, WV, TN--the Cumberland, Gauley, Pigeon, Little Pigeon, etc. I broke my Werner shogun carbon paddle--it was old--and needed a quick, cheaper solution for the moment and decided on the 200cm Desperado--I'm 6'0. I am not disappointed. This paddle has very little flutter, even compared to carbon. The minute flutter it does have does not diminish the stroke power. Don't let people tell you otherwise. The blade is medium, compared to the shogun large blades, which I knew when I bought it. This paddle has so far stood up to class V rapids and has performed well. It's not bent shaft like my shogun and so took a little getting used to until I get another full carbon bent shaft. If you are a class IV-V paddler this paddle is a great backup. If you are a beginner, you couldn't ask for any better.
