Great paddle! I wanted something with a smaller blade than my Warner Corryvreckan to reduce shoulder and elbow wear-and-tear during long days covering long distances on flat to choppy water. Expensive, for sure, but light weight of carbon and flotation of blades really appreciated the more often I use it. Ferrule system works well, though should be protected when traveling with the paddle broken down. I am told the ferrule is a point of structural weakness that can break, but this requires a fairly extreme force. If you are an extreme paddler, get the solid shaft version. Altogether, well worth the price. Can be used in a range of settings. I couldn't find it any cheaper anywhere else.
The paddle is terrific, but like any carbon fiber paddle with black blades, it is important to put something on the blades so that the paddle is easy to see, whether by passing boaters or if it gets dropped into a log jam. I have decorated mine with my name and phone number in gold mailbox letters, plus stickers that show the Great Lakes in neon colors. Looks sweet and no-one will accidentally pick it up and claim it as theirs!
