Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paddle I used this paddle for 40 days in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. It was used on everything from big lakes, to the Arctic Ocean, to creeks, to class III whitewater. The fiberglass coated blade is extremely durable, but compared to other wooden paddles that are made for whitewater, this paddle weighs little. The T-Grip is very comfortable for flatwater but also offers a solid grip for whitewater. I know that some call this company "breaking branches" but I know a number of people who have this paddle and they are all as satisfied as I am.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly durable Days after purchasing this paddle I took a 2 day trip down the Iowa river in my 16' Penobscot. On day 1 the river was shallow and rocky, with intermittent twists, forks and fallen trees obstructing the waterway. In other words... lots of fun. On more than one occasion I had to paddle through shallow rocky bottoms, making hard, and direct, contact with large stones almost every stroke . But the paddle came out unscathed. I can't even tell I've used it. A+

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Satified Good paddle for the money. I love the size and weight of this thing. There were a few minor blemishes in the shaft when I first got it. Since I use it mostly in the Lower Saluda with a bunch of rocks I don't mind. The paddle head is large and really helps in upstream paddling. The rock guard has held up well after taking some good whacks on rocky bottoms.
