I’m so glad I bought this paddle! It’s lightweight, comfortable to hold, has good control, and has a lot of power. On top of all that, it’s a fantastic value!I like paddling with it feathered, but it works great when set to neutral as well. I own a wide IK, so I got the 240cm length and it’s perfect for me. The two pieces are are easy to assemble and disassemble, and take up very little space. Once assembled, there is absolutely no play at the joint, and the paddle feels solid and strong. I highly recommend this paddle.
