I own a Wilderness Pungo 120 for local river and lake travel, birding and fishing. I'm 6'1" and the salesman at Galyans (who is an avid kayaker) recommended the Sea Passage Paddle. On my first day, my journey took me through the Du Page River (smooth), Des Plaines River (heavily travelled by commercial barges), and the historic Illinois and Michigan Canal (smooth as glass). This paddle was excellent. Very light. Excellent grip. Cut the water well. Easy storage in two pieces. About the price, it was listed originally at $140 at Galyans. Then, it was marked down to $104. When I went, I had a 15% off coupon. It was well worth $88 bucks! I plan to take good care of it, and use it for many years to come.
