I paid $90 at Sportsmanís Warehouse for the BB Slice Angler Paddle. All that makes it an Angler is the measurement markings on the shaft for measuring your catch, line, etc.

Pros: It's very light and thereís no play where the two halves connect in the middle. The blade is big enough to really push the kayak but not too big to cause too much strain. Cons: While many fiberglass shafts flex a little, this one feels like it flexes just a bit too much. I personally prefer a more rigid feel. Also since the shaft is not watertight, the foam inside tends to not let the water drain properly so that there is always an ounce or two of water inside that can only be removed by taking out the foam and draining it. Since there's not much room to work with in there, trying to get a hold of the foam can be a bit of a pain in the neck.

I would expect small issues from a cheap paddle but Bending Branches is a respectable company with many years of outfitting. I know this paddle was considerably more expensive when it first hit the market a few years ago. These issues should have been worked out in production. But overall, you cant beat the price for such a light paddle.
