When I purchased my newest boat my local shop threw in a new paddle. I was able to pick from the Bounce Aluminum Shaft with X-grips or the Sunrise Glass Shaft paddle. I decided to go with the Bounce because of the oval shaped built in hand grips. After using the paddle a few times now I have to say I wish they made this in a glass shaft version.
It is a very comfortable paddle and helped minimize the blisters I normally get when out on a long paddle. It stood up to rocks and waves rather well and didn't have a lot of flex in the paddle. It will start to feel heavy after a while when compared to a Glass shaft paddle though.
Overall it is durable not terribly heavy and comfortable. It also will not break the bank, I just wish they made this in a glass shaft version.
