Good for a spare
I bought this for a spare when doing the river in my duck. It appears to be very tough but it is very basic and heavy. The blades don't have as much power as the curved blades and the handle joint is a little sloppy. It does have two feather postions. The handle diameter is comfy. I would get it again as a spare but it would not be my first line paddle. Good value as a rental also.
