If you are looking for something similar to the last option, but aren’t crazy about bent shafts this might be a great paddle for you (there’s probably a phallic joke somewhere in there about bent shafts, but I’m honestly a little bit afraid to find out what it's).

You’ll be getting a very similar product with this paddle, minus the bend.

The blades are again fiberglass reinforced plastic. This won’t function quite as well as pure fiberglass or carbon fiber blades, but they'll get the job done pretty well.

The shaft is also made with the same type of heat treated aluminum. Rather than a bend, however, this product uses an ovalized shaft to increase comfort. This is an excellent addition.

The feathering on this paddle is adjustable to three settings. This is a two-piece paddle, and the connection seems pretty solid. The drip rings on this paddle are a bit wider than average, which we found to be a nice, simple addition that went a long way with regard to comfort.

This paddle does weigh in quite a bit heavier than others on this list at nearly 40 ounces. This may be a better option for someone who doesn’t take particularly long tours. The paddle comes in three lengths: 220 cm, 230 cm, and 240 cm.

Buy with caution.

Although we do like this paddle a lot when shipped as intended, there have been some reports of sloppy business practices and quality assurance. Two other reviewers did not receive their drip rings and one received a broken shaft.

This product does come with a warranty that will cover you in the event that this happens to you. The warranty last one-year and covers defects in manufacturing.
