I'll start out by saying that this is a nice paddle for the price. It is light weight compared to aluminum paddles and still feels sturdy. The blade design is curved which seems to help paddle faster on flat water, but I think a straight blade would be better in whitewater.
The paddle is a two piece and gives the option of rotating 45 degrees forward or back. This is somewhat limiting compared to higher in paddles that allow you to feather the blade at any angle you wish. There is also a little bit of play where the ends meet (paddle rotates a little bit when locked in) since the connection is not locked in super tight. This hasn't been an issue in real world use though.
All things considered, this is a nice paddle for the price. It is a great option for your average rec paddler and should last for years. There are better paddles out there with tighter tolerances and fancier designs but you will have to pay a considerable amount for it.
