Experience with AT2 Superduty?

For some reason I can't get used to my Werner Powerhouse (45 degrees), and I know I shouldn't switch to an AT but I keep getting an urge. I've seen the discussions on how much more often ATs break as well as their substandard customer service. But there's the AT2 Superduty......is it better?

Has anyone had experience using the AT2 Superduty? What does it paddle like? Have you heard any warranty stories about their "lifetime warranty" on the shaft? Should I just stick it out with the Werner?

I appreciate the feedback - I just want a couple opinions on this before I drop $500 on a paddle.

Thanks,

Don't know about a SD, but the AT I've been paddling is pushing ten seasons of creeking with more than it's share of mank runs like the source. I did re-coat it with epoxy as a safeguard a few fears ago, but the thing has held up to a beating.

Good to know. I just remember breaking 4 paddles within a year when I was learning to boat - and I certainly don't feel like I'm easy on paddles now!

yeah, If you're gonna window shade to rock brace, anything will break. I broke a bunch of paddles in my first 3 even 4 years. Knock on wood, its been a while....
