Breakdown Paddle Idea - Thoughts and Comments Welcome!

Hi everyone,

I just broke my paddle on the Ottawa at Coliseum and would have really loved to not C1 the rest of the river. I have come up with an idea for a compact collapsible four piece paddle and was wondering if anyone here a) would want one if I did a kickstarter and b) have any opinions on what they would like to see in a breakdown? I figure that it will cost about 150 USD per paddle to make a nice fiberglass one.

Thanks for your input!

I'd think ultimately, they'd what what ever their favorite paddle is in a break down. How is your paddle going to be better than something like this?:Werner Powerhouse Fiberglass 4-Piece Breakdown Kayak Paddle |

You could sell a Field Converter Kit (Small flat saw, hand drill, and T Grip). Break it, saw it off, drill it, and pop in the T Grip with button.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.
