  Adjustable is a HUGE plus
  Posted by: gstamer on Apr-01-13 9:38 PM (EST)

You asked, "Is being able to adjust the length of your paddle something that's worthwhile?"

For me the answer is a resounding YES! I often adjust the length of my paddles on-the-fly to accommodate changing wind conditions, boat load, how I'm feeling, what seat pad (if any) I am using and a host of minute factors.

If given the choice of two very similar paddles, one adjustable for length and one not, I would definitely choose the adjustable length. YMMV.

Some of my peers prefer a one-piece as it is lighter and stronger, but I prefer the versatility of a two-piece, with length/feather adjustment.
