    Solid performance from this paddle. Excellent multi-point adjustable. Small shaft drip-guards will allow some water to run down the shaft.

      For [$] you really can't go wrong. This paddle has similar weight to the more expensive paddles. I have not experienced any flutter. Its a good paddle for light touring and day trips. I go on day trips all the time and it suits me perfect.

        Comments about AQUA-BOUND Sting Ray TLC Paddle, Carbon, Small Shaft:

        Every time I'm out kayaking with friends, I offer to trade paddles with them which ends up in a fight to get my paddle back. Once you've used this paddle none other is adequate. The smaller shaft is so much more comfortable for me to grip and the light weight makes a day out kayaking much more relaxing and enjoyable. I've told friends (and we are all just recreational paddlers) that if they are going to spend a little extra money on anything related to their paddling gear, this should be what they purchase!

          Old aluminum EMS paddle retired. Worth the big price in lower fatigue, much better rhythm.

            Bought two for my young sons, aged 8 and 10. The small shaft is perfect and the weight is just right. We have much lighter paddles and when the boys have tried these they didn't like them. Too much flutter for the amount of force they can apply. Perfect kids paddle that won't wear them out.

              I own a AB Stingray carbon shaft, with the black paddles. I loved it so much I decided to buy another AB Stingray for my boyfriend. This model is less expensive than mine & it only weighs 1 more oz. This paddle is so light weight, it won't tire you out. And paddling into heavy winds, is no problem.The AB slices right thru the wind and the waves. When I kayak, I go all day long. W/o the Stingray, I'd be tired in a few hours.

                After doing a lot of research I decided this was the best bang for the buck without going crazy on an really really light paddle... I've put about 50 miles on it so far and it is perfect. Not sure if I can post this link but this is me using it last weekend. [@]

                  These are the first set of paddles I've owned. I bought them because the reviews were 4 and 5 stars. The paddles are light. Strokes are smooth. The kayak is easy to maneuver, with them. Glad I bought them. Also purchased a shorter pair for a friend.
