Don't enough paddles get lost out there without making them camouflage?

It has good visibility in the water. An awesome paddle at a great price. The top paddles in the world are all black like the AT SL and all the Werner high end paddles like Double D's, Stikines, etc... All of which are harder to see than orange or yellow. Which is a more common color for entry level paddles like the Werner Rio(yellow) Entry level paddles get dropped more, so maybe that is why they are made bright.

you could always throw a bright sticker on it if you were worried.

Or just try your best to hold onto the paddle the best you can.

My EXACT reaction the INSTANT I saw that paddle.

I'm SICK of manufactures putting out good paddles that are impossible to find if they have a few inches of water flowing over them. If one of these paddles ends up under water it is GONE.

I wish more manufacturers used bright yellow like those old yellow Woody Kreekers. Roy, you just absolutely cannot lose your Woody and I know that for a fact. It is a bright beacon of light, like a 6ft. banana.

I love my AT paddles but they match the color of creek water quite well. That is why they each have about half a roll of yellow electrical tape on them. I'm getting sick of re-applying tape to the blades every season.

It would be nice if someone would do the obvious and manufacture a good paddle that you can see under water.

Wish I had known about these before I ordered a AT4-River... I loved my standard AT3 I sold in nepal after 200+ days.

Any way to special order one with a 10 degree off set or did they destroy the molds?

huh

So 40% off 360 [Advertised base price] is 216. Great deal..... but no! The price is 269. When I call them on it, the store says they made a mistake and it is 33% off. OK,,, 33% puts the price at 241, not the 269 still advertised. Get it together folks.

I thought that was some funny math as well.
