I have yet to receive the nrs plate and fin(s), will have to give them a call. But I have also used it several times and a lot of folks have admired it and asked about it. All in all, if you take care of it (meaning clean and dry it up after every trip), it should last years to come.
I had the unfortunate event of having the small round black plastic center piece fall off from the bottom of the pump (underneath)
I wonder if I can find the replacement piece, otherwise since I bought two I can just use my other pump.. but I would still like to fix it eventually.
As for the paddles, they are complete gargage..
