Y'know, having tried some really nice (translation: Expen$ive!) paddles, I have to say that for $25 at WalMart.com, this has to be THE best value in a kayak paddle you'll ever find. Yes, the SeaSense X-II is a bit on the long side at 96", but for a 6'4" guy like me in our Malibu Pro Tandem, it's perfect; even my wife at 5'11" likes it better than her older 86" paddle -- I thought I'd be shortening the X-II for her, but she's happy with it as is. I even bought a third one as a spare; I mean, for 25 measly bucks, why not?? So unless you're really an "ultimate gear" freak or a super-serious kayaker with a carbon-fibre fixation, get one of these babies, you'll love it!
