TThank you Bending Branches for being a sponsor. Thank you Kristine for working with me to get the Navigator Plus paddle.
I checked out the paddle yesterday under various conditions and found no issues with the performance at all.
The 28 ozs. makes you wonder if you are even holding the paddle. The way the blade enters the water and exits is real smooth. The only force I felt was moving the blade through the water and even that was minimum.
After 2 hours of paddling I felt like I hadn’t gone out at all.
