I bought the Skagit as a back up paddle. I had used my wife's (although short for me) and I liked it. My primary paddle is a Camano and while it is basically the same, the blade materials make it a little heavier.
I feel it is a good buy for the price. It has the same features - adjustable paddle angles, etc.) as it's more expensive brothers. My uses for it is for a back paddle and a loaner paddle for guests that use one of our boats. I feel the blade material will actually be more durable than Werner's next price point, which is over double the price!
Very good buy for the money and good for many levels of paddle experience.
