I wanted to try a double-bladed paddle, so, went shopping at local sporting goods store. The longest paddle they had in stock was a 230 cm from Marine Raider. $24.99, also the least expensive. Scooped blades, drip cups, foam pads, three positions at the break--all the trimmings! Also the only model with all these features together. I've paddled my 12' Pack across the lake in wind, wave, and wake; up and down the creek in half-a-blade depths--or less; and along the Trinity River about twenty miles. Great paddle; tough and flexible. $25! I LOVE mine!
