I really wanted one of these paddles but after inspecting them in the shop, they have design flaw. There is rotation at the joints meaning it won't paddle properly and it will wear and tear faster.
The piece with the handle isnt a full circle, there is a flat section which you see in more expensive paddles to prevent rotation. However the shaft this connects into only has the flat section at the top, and it's made of plastic. The rest of carbon shaft is a full circle, allowing the pieces to rotate easily when they should be locked together.
Increasing the tightness of the screw didt help. You need to make both pieces the same shape all the way down the shaft.
Seems like a solid paddle at an amazing price let down by a small design feature.
