yo dudes and dudettes-
i snapped my AT4 in half last week. it happened as i took a stroke and hit a submerged rock with the tip of the blade and the shaft snapped in two just off center, past the internal flutting. very strange that the shaft snapped were it did after hitting the blade. i'm assuming the damage was done another time and that little bit of shock broke the camals back. suprised the sh!t outa me as i was in a pretty busy section of the Big T at that moment and hand-paddling with two seperate blades leaves much to be desired.
i've had it just over a year thus no warrenty
i called the AT4 folks and they were very responsive. i'll be sending back to them to either get it fixed or replaced for some cash ($$??).
just seeing what others have experienced with their AT4s?? have you broken yours and how responsive was AT with non-warrenty paddles?? and if you got it fixed what was the $$ damage?
