If you are on a tight budget but don’t want to be stuck with a bad paddle, you came to the right review. There is a reason that this paddle is one of the most popular on the market.

Although this one might not be as high functioning as some others on this list, it'll also outperform its price point by a huge margin.

Given it’s aluminum construction, it's lighter than you would expect at about 35 ounces. It also has a good an adjustable feathering ferrule, so you should see a bit less fatigue from weight and wind resistance than other paddles at a similar price.

It only comes in one rather long size at 243 cm, so if you are in need of something shorter, you might want to look elsewhere (SeaSence has other good, affordable paddles).

The blades on this product are plastic. However, they’re still asymmetrical and dihedral, so you can expect your paddle to be flutter free.

Here is what we thought.

In tests, this paddle did not perform at a premium level, but it did greatly exceed our expectations.

This paddle comes with adjustable, heavy-duty drip guards which worked very well and kept our hands dry and comfortable. It has an added ridge in the shaft for strength and two-piece construction for portability and storability.

We were also pretty impressed with the warranty on this paddle. It doesn't  appear that SeaSense puts any warranty period restriction on their limited manufacturer's warranty.
