I picked up a new full touring ONNO paddle in the Carbon Signature with white on the front of the blades for visability (requested), and, after using a Aquabound Seafarer for a while, I am very impressed with the ONNO paddle. It weighs 21.5 oz, does not flutter, has great purchase, has a fabulous and slightly narrower shaft, with hand indexing on both sides (I requested this) and allows for great speed. Mine is two piece for portability and storage in my kayak. The carbon joint or furrell must be keep well greased or lubricated (almost any grease will do) or you will have problems pretty quickly because of the very tight fit, especially in salt water. Also, wash the salt off your paddle when you are finished paddling, if you paddle in salt water. A really fabulous paddle. Love it.
