Aquabound Expedition AMT for one year, and love it! Lightweight, I have 230 cm for my Prijon Capri and Clabria, works well (I personally would not have gotten it any whorter, as I prefer and light and low stroke). Only knock: the stiffness of the paddle, a boon to some, might cause some joint pain with extended use. Wrists, elbows, can "feel it" for this 40 something paddler, but the Bending Branches fiberglass I never feel this. The stiffness is noticeable. I for one prefer the longer narrower blades, because frankly (although other Aquabound’s have more of a large spoon blade), I think a super stiff paddle with larger bladers would REALLY screw up my joints. Anyhow, well made, and purchased for about $175. Good value.
