I bought this paddle when STP had a good coupon. The first time I took it out, I paddled almost 3 hours straight for 6.3 miles with very little fatigue. I cut it a little longer just to get a feel and I cut it down again to just the right length. It's short 1 star to be the perfect purchase - the grip. The grip is polished carbon fiber, which makes it really slippery when your hand is wet. I had to grip it a little harder than my norm so it doesn't wobble around.
Other than that, this is a good paddle with no frills, just solid material. Nicely sized blade for general use too. I am very satisfied.

Strong mid weight paddle. Carbon blade & fiberglass handle make for a strong combination at a reasonable price. Just a little heavier than a full carbon paddle. Reasonable price for a quality paddle. Works good in the surf and flat water.

I was able to unpack it, blow it up, and paddle away in less than 8 minutes. I could see how the pumping could get tough for unconditioned people - it's a workout. I usually just leave it inflated now. It's very stable, but slower than a hard board. It's lighter than a hard board of equivalent size. It tracks well with the large center fin installed, but I took it out to paddle in a shallow river and it was very squirrely with only the two small side fins. I would like a smaller center fin for running rivers.
