Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
What a difference a carbon fiber paddles makes compared to an aluminum paddle. This thing feels super light and solid running whitewater. I thought the durability would not be all that great but it's bashed rocks and shows no signs of wear. I would highly recommend this paddle for the price.
