I am on my second Aquabound 4 piece paddle and I am very aggravated that the paddle does not come apart at the blade end, I've tried just about everything. This is very frustrating as I currently paddle with and Advanced Elements framed inflatable which I have put in a bag with pump, life jacket and accessories, but since the paddle will not come apart it does not fit in the bag, and I would also prefer not to announce that I have an expensive paddle in the car.
I believe the Stingray was quicker to get the sticking problem, perhaps in part because of the smaller blades. But the sticking the first pair is one reason I bought the Stingray in the first place, but I do prefer the blade of the Stingray.
