Great for smaller paddlers
I’m 5’2” and 110lbs. This paddle has been so much easier to use. Lighter weight, solid design and lovely to look at!
Soooo happy with this lightweight paddle for my slight stature/low muscle mass (5'3+"/80 lbs) with a (30 yr.) chronically compromised area of trapezius muscle that IN THE PAST made canoe/kayak paddling intolerable, swimming had to be carefully calculated timewise, ... but with this 100% carbon 86 sq " paddle, this 61 yr young woman is PADDLING WITH EASE, FURTHER DISTANCE THAN ANTICIPATED when adventure or caught in wind; DON'T EVEN HAVE TO THINK ABOUT OR PLAN HOW LONG I CAN PADDLE (before exciting the vulnerable area)! I am FREE TO GO WITH THE FLOW! After I return the paddleboard ashore --> I continue my lake experience with a gentle swim. And, I feel great! (NO after effects to address therapeutically as had been used to from any 'shoulder' activity.) (Just wish the bamboo designed paddle had been in stock when I ordered my package, as that would have really added to my rainforest memories!)
My wife is 5’4, maybe 110lbs, having a paddle that fits her has made a huge difference already in her skill level and endurance on the water. Super light well made paddle with a very useful, padded carry bag.
