Been meaning to do this review for a few weeks but weather,
work and christmas put a stop on things. Finally got out. LLandudno 3rd jan.
First impressions - Stunning looks. The paddle is finished to a very high standard 215 cm, 2 piece carbon with a positive twistgrip connector. the paddle is adjustable both in length and feather. The 2 piece shaft has a good looking square pattern in the carbon weave and also has a slight increase in diameter for correct grip position. The blades have a good curve to help move the water. The front face of the blades are carbon colour with a good pattern and the rear of the bladed are a solid bright orange.
The blade ends have been made slightly thicker to protect from chipping and have been trimmed to perfection, not a sharp edge or trimming mark to be seen.
If the paddle is held up and turned it can be seen from quite a distance in either light or dull conditions owing to the 2 colours.
Now. How does it perform?
Comfy to hold and 8 ounces lighter than my fibre glass/plastic paddle.
at first i had a bit of a problem. Having touring blades, they are narrower than my old paddle. After a few minuts out i realised i was submersing the blades too deep. With shallower strokes the long narrow blades cut into and left the water with ease making paddling quite effortless. As the day went on the paddle grew on me. The more i used it the more i liked it.
This paddle retails for £179.99 and for the quality and finish i think it is good value for money.
