I have one of these at home with a shorter red shaft, maybe 52" overall length.
I don't think I ever paddled with it, but simply wanted it to have around. I paid $45 for mine from a friend who had two of them. I bought the better of the two.
Another friend of mine has one he actually uses a lot as well as a Kevlar bent shaft of quite a different design Verlen made that he bought from him at Canoecopia many moons ago.
