Good second paddle for friends to use
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this for friends to use on my second kayak. They have no complaints although it's easy to see it's a 100% basic paddle. It you're looking for something that looks nicer, look elsewhere. But if you want something that works perfectly fine for what it's designed for, this is your paddle.
Great paddle for the price!
The 90 inch size is too small for standard IK's.
I have used these paddles for over15 years with hardley a problem. I have IKed thousands of miles of class 3-4+ whitewater, many of which were multi-day wilderness trips with large loads. While heavier than most, I have never had one break. I have seen dozens of other paddles break during that same time, from cheapos to carbon fiber spendy paddles.
A little extra weight is worth it to me.
How do I know what length of paddle is...
How do I know what length of paddle is good for me? I am about 5'4.
220 cm would be a good starting point maybe to 230 for a wide rec or sit on top.
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.

Write your question here...Waht would be the best length paddle for me. I'm buying the Dagger Apoproach Kayak. I'm 5'10" tall.
I used NRS's Paddle Fit Guide [http://www.nrsweb.com/inflatables/paddle_sizing_guide.asp?deptid=1116&tn=76] and came up with a recommended size of 90in for this paddle. I hope this helps!
