Never got to paddle it
October 09, 2009
This paddle looked pretty nice. However, when I received it, it would not stay together in the center connector. Seemed like the glue did not work or was not there. It may have just been a defective product. Everything else I have used by NRS has been great.
Nice Feel--Hope the Replacement Stays Together

This paddle feels light compared to a Carlisle breakdown. The feathering is at a 45 degree angle rather than at right angles. But after a few days of use it came apart and would not stay together. NRS says that seldom happens and so I replaced it. Hope the glue sticks in this next one.

I've owned these paddles for two years and think they work great. I'm a recreational kayaker, so my experience with other paddles is limited. Mine work great. I have a little trouble getting them apart once they are together, but it's nothing that I can't overcome within three minutes of persistance.Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value
