Really nicely made and light, but too much flutter
Beautiful, well made and lightweight paddle. Ordered the kayak add-on as well. Quick delivery and comes with a very nice bag. I wanted to love the paddle, but I had to really concentrate to reduce flutter (side-to-side motion) as you pull the paddle through the water). I found I could eliminate this my submerging the paddle deeper, which is probably what you should do for a better, more efficient, and powerful stroke, but I had to really focus. Perhaps more dihedral would help. I requested a return and they responded quickly, provided a free return label, and refunded my money quickly.
