I had a credit to use at OS, so used it to purchase this paddle. Husband & I just purchased kayaks and are new to the sport. Tho I am a novice, I liked the paddle for it light weight and seemed to be appropriate length for me (5'3" 109 lbs with Pelican Maverick 100x kayak). Only problem I had was with changing the positions or taking the paddle apart. Compared to the cheaper paddle my husband got at Dicks, mine is a great deal harder to get apart or turn as the pin does not slip in and out very easily whereas his works very smoothly. My husband usually just does it for me-problem solved, unless no one is around, but don't foresee that happening, so I'm happy with my purchase.
The dropstitched floor increases the stiffness of the kayak, such that it doesn't wrinkle on the sides when you sit in it, and is slightly thinner. Seems more durable, too. Less comfortable than the original, feels like sitting on a harder kayak floor. *** , so got to me quickly.
These paddles are extremely sturdy and well made. The design is simple but pleasing on the eyes. These paddles can be used for a number of things. They come highly recommended! Shipping was great too! Fast and efficient.
I've never worked with a docking system that was so easy to install. Lightweight but durable, I feel safe using it in my system. Would recommend for anyone looking to get a docking system and not having to worry about paying for installation or it falling apart.
