Upside: - very easily adjusts from short to long reach paddler
- Take care tightening the twist-lock nuts that tighten the thicker aluminum shafts on the paddle blades. It's easier than you think to strip the ABS plastic thread on the blades.
- The design has four twist-lock nuts per paddle, and these nuts can become VERY difficult to release when grit gets into them, especially the ones that allow for lengthening the paddle. I keep a roll of plumber's teflon tape with me and refresh it on the all the threads after cleaning them every now and then.
- ABS plastic paddle seems brittle, only edges have chipped off for us, but I suspect one day one of these paddles is going to crack.
