Stefan's Bio

I believe it is all about the experience. Having the right equipment is crucial to that experience. At the end of the day I want to be sore from having pushed myself to the limits, not from poor fitting and functioning equipment.

This is my first experience with these paddles and I find them to be top notch. I purchased two of them for use with my 11.5 Perception Tribes. Very light, strong and have a good responsive feel when paddling. The design on the adjustable ferrule is pretty sleek and has a minimal profile. You wear your arms out from paddling as opposed to holding the paddle up throughout a good day on the lake. The increments for adjusting your paddle stroke allow for some pretty fine tuning and does not require an iron grip to depress the locking button.

Security
4 5

The handles on either side of the boat are big enough to allow a bike lock to be threaded through so that you can secure it to your vehicle on longer trips. It also provides a better opportunity to strap them securely to the rack of your vehicle. It would have benefited more however to have had this same kind of mechanism closer to the front and rear of the boat to secure them better to the car.

Balanced
4 5

The handles on either side built into the structure of the boats are well-placed for balancing the boats overhead. This was especially helpful when loading on and unloading off the roof of the SUV. Even with some gear that was in the rear compartment, the boat balanced well. I would however advise that two people always load and unload these boats to avoid injury.

I purchased two of these to have as good recreational boats to take friends and family out on the the great salt lake as well as on vacations to Powell and any other body of water. They track very well, are very stable and fairly easy to maneuver. There are features that I like but there are a few details that I feel Perception could have gotten better given their experience designing and building boats. As I can only upload one photo per review. I'll break down my comments into individual reviews to support with photos/videos. The first thing I like about these boats are the handles at the front and back which are connected to the elastic bands used to secure gear into the front and back compartments. They are convenient for carrying but remain secure when not being used. Demonstrated in the quick video.
