Rated 3 out of 5 by from One Tough Paddle OK, this is a livery paddle. Like they use at rental companies. Extremely tough. It's 3 times heavier and 3 times cheaper than a good wood paddle. At the end of a long day of paddling you will definitely feel the difference. Weigh the difference before buying. If you only paddle an unloaded canoe for an hour or two, it's a good buy. If you need a spare paddle for river regs, it's a good buy. If you are going to paddle a loaded canoe for days, I suggest the BB Espresso Plus straight shaft for rivers and BB's Special bent shaft for lakes. T-grips are dangerous if the hand does not cover the grip, and even then, you can get an awesome shiner if you are not careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product for the price I needed to replace the fiberglass used paddle that came with the canoe; it had cracked under the shaft insertion in the blade. I needed to get a decent, reliable paddle pretty quickly. My friend and I did a 50 mile canoe trip on Ross Lake where we encountered some very difficult wind and wave filled days. I was pulling hard against a stiff wind that flattened wave tops. This paddle performed very well in the difficult weather conditions. I am not an overly experienced paddler, and I felt very confident in this paddle. While I would like to get a lighter/bent paddle, this was a wonderful choice for a replacement, and will make an excellent backup paddle on future big trips. I would buy this paddle all over again. The main negatives about this paddle is the plastic did ding, and it is a bit heavy. But for the price, it was a terrific option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great paddle for its price My canoe paddle cracked shortly before a multi-day trip, and I had to to do something quickly. After reading and researching, this paddle was a great option, as I was planning on eventually make it the backup paddle. This paddle is pretty heavy, but it's very very sturdy. While on my multi-day trip, I saw lots of Boy Scouters using this paddle. To me, that is a HUGE testament of the paddle's durability and effectiveness. Let's be honest, a bunch of teen-aged boys are NOT careful with their gear, on the whole. This paddle absolutely was up to the task of handling the hard work and abuse that a long trip puts on gear. The plastic did ding a little on the handle, but it did not affect the strength of the paddle. However, the blade really took the wear and tear of just how rough a long excursion puts on gear. On the 2nd to the last day of our trip, we had 20-30 mile and hour headwinds to buck. It took us EIGHT (yes, 8!) hours to go SIX (6!!) miles. We fought chop and wind and waves. I have never worked so hard for so long in an outdoor pursuit. This paddle handled that kind of work load. No kidding, the wind was so bad, at one point, we were being driven backwards. So, this paddle took HUGE amounts of power and torque, not just in the regular flat water paddling, but also in having to deal with that kind of wind and waves. So, if you are looking for a good starter paddle, or need it for young, new paddlers who haven't learned *quite* how to be gentle to their gear, or need a great back up paddle, this is a great choice for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only [$]? Best bang for the buck. Period I own four of these. Granted, there's lighter and higher performance paddles out there, but for the price, you can't get better. The shaft can get a little uncomfortable after a few hours, but c'mon, [$]!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A paddle you can depend on Last summer, when the river was down/low volume, I had to do lots of out of boat stuff to get our canoe off the rocks on the Hiwassee in East TN. I used the paddle to pole with, to brace my body on the rocks, as a walking staff in rapids, etc. NOTE: dont try to do this, or think its a wise thing to do, I just didnt have many other options at the time. At any rate, this paddle was amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't Go Wrong If your looking for a paddle you can throw around and not worry about, this is it. Not the best and not the worst. For the money it is a really nice paddle. I would buy again if needed but they look like they are going to last a long time.
