Good report Occy,

The other advantage for fibreglass shafts that us Southerners probably appreciate more is the fact that they feel much less cold than aluminium ones do.

I agree also with you that the raised (oval shaped) hand grip on one side is nice. Many of the fibreglass shafted paddles that I have seen have this so the omission on the model mentioned here might be a negative.

It seems good value though. I'd probably buy one and chop it up and make another 10 paddles. :lol: (check your unit of measure).

Looks nice......is there any movement (flex) at all in the paddle shaft under heavy load when paddling Occy? or does it feel much the same as a one piece?

Wish I had gone with a 2 piece paddle, I find my 1 piece paddles are a pain in the a$$, especially with all the long trips we do.

I have a standard feathered paddle (Right hand) but some years back when I made an experimental paddle, I worked out that I prefered my paddle feathered the other way (left hand). Because the only left hand paddles I have seen have been expensive I have not got one. But this paddle, with one adjustment so it can be feathered the other way sounds very positive.
