     The Manta Ray paddle is a great fit. I love the posi-lok feature of this paddle. You can change the feathering with ease. There is no weight to this paddle at all. Would highly recommend.

     This review is of the Posi-Lok Dual Button Ferrule version of the Manta Ray Carbon. I bought the 240cm version to propel my Jackson Cuda around the many swamps and bayous I fish. I have also used it on a few 22 mile races that I participate for fun. I describe myself as a high angle paddler and try to keep a good "windmill" rhythm when I am cruising. When fishing I often stand and use the paddle as a Push Pole against rocks, trees, oysters, and sand. I am impressed at how well this lightweight paddle has held up. What I like most is that it doesn't flutter like others I have tried. My friends tell me I paddle to hard. Whatever, this works for me. No problems with the Posi-Lok! This could be made better with some slots to grab line cut into the blades. For me, this is the best paddle for the price ($200).

     I own the newer version of the Manta Ray and the old. The newer Twist-Lock is slipping... where the twist lock seats into the shaft... and the old version sticks (I sanded it lightly but it is brutal). Just to be clear there are carbon and metal versions.

Despite the problems with the locks/connections, I think this is the best value (for graphite) paddle available for a sit on top or sea kayak. The blade generates a ton of power, the shaft is stiff and very light weight

I've owned Werner, Mitchell, Bending Branches and Galasport paddles for both kayak and canoe
