I have the 96" version of this paddle and have been extremely impressed. The paddle seems pretty sturdy, goes together easily, and has quite a few good features that I couldn't find on paddles anywhere else near the price. For that price, you get quite a bit...the two piece paddle with multiple angles, drip rings, and hand pads. It's also RELATIVELY light...it's not a featherweight at all, but it's not really heavy either. I have dropped mine in the water and it stayed on top long enough for me to grab it. I recommend it for a beginning paddler.
