I own the newer version of the Manta Ray and the old. The newer Twist-Lock is slipping... where the twist lock seats into the shaft... and the old version sticks (I sanded it lightly but it is brutal). Just to be clear there are carbon and metal versions.
Despite the problems with the locks/connections, I think this is the best value (for graphite) paddle available for a sit on top or sea kayak. The blade generates a ton of power, the shaft is stiff and very light weight
I've owned Werner, Mitchell, Bending Branches and Galasport paddles for both kayak and canoe
