Good paddle and price and even better price when you get it on sale at just over $200+. What I like about this paddle is the bamboo/carbon mixed shaft, its one of the best imo. The blade Width7.25", Area90 sq.in./580 cm and this size blade would given my shoulder grief but not with this shaft combo. The blade is nice mixed of tear drop and high aspect and it has a nice grab and release and not worrying about being a technical paddle stroke freak. I started using with the race board 73" shaft length then I cut to 70" for the surf and the shaft still have a nice flex (paddle weight 560g)
I have the adjustable one but a couple of years older, good paddle and quite light.
