Have been kayaking with it for three years and would not paddle without it. When I upgraded to 17' sea kayak the Camano was more impressive than the new boat!
I paddle with other hardcore kayakers and this model is the paddle of choice. Light weight, durable, with full adjustments it is a great paddle.
Despite its stated purpose as a low angle paddle, most of us are high angle folks and still think it's great. You won't regret choosing this paddle.

To know if you need a small diameter shaft, measure your hand from the base of the palm to the tip of your middle finger. If your measurement is 6 1/4" or smaller you should try a small shaft. You can also print the "Shaft Diameter Print Out" in the Links section and use it to measure your hand.
