Recent Kayak Paddle Reviews

Carlisle Magic

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I am not a kayaker, but when I purchased a new solo canoe, it was suggested to me, that in addition to my regular canoe paddle, I look into getting a basic kayak paddle, to try with the solo canoe. I saw this Carlisle Magic paddle at LL Bean, and it looked as though it would meet my needs. It has done quite well for me, and I can recommend this paddle as a basic, recreational paddle for a kayak or canoe. I had never used a kayak paddle before I purchased my solo boat; I have found this basic paddle… Full review

Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Carbon

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent ultra light paddle with lots of adjustability. Packs down in two pieces, drip rings included, and very little "flutter" when paddling hard. I got this paddle as a present with my kayak for Christmas from my wife. I was used to an aluminum shaft paddle on my last kayak. Immediately I noticed that this thing is light. I thought my aluminum paddle was light. I was wrong! At just over a pound, this paddle is almost non-existent in your hands. It has a positive locking ferrule that has locking… Full review

Werner Skagit FG IM

rated 5 of 5 stars Great paddle...Great value. The Skagit FG IM is a great all around paddle. I don't think that you could find a better paddle at a better price. Yes, carbon would be lighter, but it would cost more also. Full review

Werner Cyprus

rated 5 of 5 stars Outstanding premium touring paddle, extremely well designed and built. Always a pleasure to use. I've been paddling with a Cyprus since 2011. Several two-week expeditions and many shorter trips.  Lots of day paddling. I'm a sea kayaking instructor. I initially purchased the Cyprus as a backup to my Werner Ikelos (also an excellent paddle) because I wanted something with a slightly smaller blade area for long days on the water with a heavy boat.  It quickly became my primary expedition paddle thanks… Full review

Bending Branches Infusion

rated 4 of 5 stars Great paddle very light. Bright color (I like to be seen on the water), if you know what I mean. Nice tapered grip. I have had this paddle and several other brands over the years and now it seems I always grab the Infusion over the others. It has a lot of miles on it and other than a few scratches on the blade it looks and acts as if it was brand new. Love how light this composite paddle is. The handles are slightly oval rather than round, which helps with maintaining grip position. Full review

Carlisle Expedition

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic! I love this paddle! Worth every penny! Its light weight fits nicely in your hand, so there is no blistering or rubbing. It doesn't get slippery when it's wet! I don't have a bad word to say about it! LOVE IT. Full review

Werner Shuna

rated 5 of 5 stars A strong, lightweight, adjustable paddle that is a joy to use. The Werner Shuna:Hooked (250cm) weighs in at 1 lb 14.5 oz (865 KG). Please check Werner's site for listed dimensions. As a new paddler, I was a bit leery of spending so much on a paddle. My mind was set at ease once I received the paddle and saw the quality put into the creation of this paddle. The adjustable ferrule works smoothly and holds firmly in place with no play once you have it set where you want it. The 15 ° increments give… Full review

Accent Vision Polymer

rated 5 of 5 stars This paddle does the trick—cuts the water and allows you to steer in the desired direction with ease. You don't have to break your back. Ive kayaked for years. I've used several brands of paddles. This brand is by far the best. I recommend to anyone looking to purchase a kayak paddle. No blisters, no sweat, this paddle cuts like a dream. Full review

Aqua-Bound Shred Carbon

rated 4 of 5 stars A carbon-fiber and ABX hybrid paddle that offers a lot of good for a very reasonable amount of dough! Simply put...if you have the money to spend on a great paddle...there are better paddles out there in the +$300 range...but this is one of the rare paddles which offers most of what better paddles offer for under $150. Where this paddle splurged you notice the difference...and where this paddle saved...you’ll never know it! Kayaking more often than not requires holding the paddle in the air for… Full review
