This is an update to my original review that I un-fairly rated as 7. As I paddled a couple of sea kayaks and eventually bought my own, I realized it's not the paddle's fault that my old rec. double was a barge that just took too much effort to move. With the WS Cape Horn 170 everything fell in its place. The 220 length works great for the boat's 23 inch width and blades are big enough to give decent sprint speed if need be, but small enough for long haul.
