enough to enjoy class 3 whitewater. good price. good function. no good look maybe.
I thought recycled carbon meant carbon fiber mistakenly. Since plastic is polymeric linked chains of ethylene or proplyene, it technically is recycled "carbon". Got my there I suppose. Secondly it is not too bad of a paddle, better than the rio, but still chips up pretty quickly. It is a Werner so it isn't bad, but you do get what you pay for. If you're really going to put it to use I'd just upgrade to the full carbon fiber.
Paddle is awesome. Naturally it's a Werner
