Here's what other sites are saying:
Take the two pieces of the Carlisle Standard Kayak Paddle out of your trunk, slide them into the hull of your kayak, and carry your craft to the shore. Then connect this two-piece paddle using the stainless button on the shaft. High-impact polypropylene and full-blade reinforcements add durability to the symmetrical blades so you won't have to worry about rock hits.
Strong, thick-walled Carlisle shafts match up with heavy-duty plastic blades to give you a general-use, all purpose paddle.
