I have used my Camano for about 4 years or so and am totally thrilled with it. I don't just splash along with it , I really use it... as a tarp pole, as a push of the rocks pry bar, as a stab in the mud/sand anchor, and as my lever for shore entry ( I am 225 lbs ). I have fished car tires from the river to flop onto shore, etc. and still not one single chip or noticeable scratch. and the ferule is still tight and wiggle free.
The Mitchell carbon and wood paddle is pure beauty and I want one, but I just can't seem to wear out my Camano. Werner makes one superb paddle. Werner must have no repeat customers because the paddles they sell are forever.
