     Of the hundreds of good paddles out there, this new full-carbon four-piece touring paddle from advanced elements stands out. It weighs only 30 oz., and its carbon-fiber shaft also sports a carbon-fiber blade.

It is tough. I have beaten this paddle up severely over the past year and a half, and it still shows no signs of wear, whereas my carbon-shaft paddles with nylon blades have all frayed and worn on the edges where they are jammed into sand and rock.

In sum, this new full-carbon paddle is light, strong, portable, and really tough - and a great value, in a class with the most expensive brands more than two to three times its price. The only possible cavil is that the buttons for feathering and putting the paddle together may seem a bit small - no doubt to keep weight down, though.
