Summary

Great bang for your buck!

Manta-Ray fiberglass paddle—This is a great all around recreational paddle. I do a lot of kayak fishing and some touring. This paddle is more suited for recreational use.

The only thing I do not like about the fiberglass construction is the wrap. It does not feel so great on your bare hands during long paddles.

Other than that this paddle holds up great. I bash it up against rocks, throw it on shore, push off of sandy beaches and it still looks the same as the day I bought it. Highly recommended for the recreational paddler. Plus, you can't beat the price.
