I was at first a bit hesitant to invest my money in a product from an unknown manufacturer. With no other reviews to go by and no known history of this company, it was a shot in the dark.
I must say that I've been pleasantly surprised with the excellent communication directly from the company (thanks Hani). I've used many "standard" paddles in the past, but this was my first purchase of a wing blade. The quality and performance have been excellent and looking back - I don't feel as though I've "lost out" for not buying a more expensive paddle of the same design.
Great product Bobcat!
