Lendal Paddles?

Just wondering if anyone out there has used a lendal paddle and what you thought of it? Is it worth the money? Looking at a 4 piece breakdown bent shaft thats going to run alittle over 400 dollars.

I have never seen one but I think that they use them in the SE some.

I've used them quite a bit and am thinking about getting one this summer as a good backup. the paddlok system is awesome...a four piece feels like a one piece. they don't feather as well as my mitchell...but that's alright. the adjustable thing is really really cool. you can get any offset angle and adjust the length by a couple centimeters. i've also never seen a broken shaft...ever. the straight carbon blades feel a little lightweight but the black nylon/glass is bomber and feels like it. good overall paddles.

I have one and love it. It's a bomber paddle, easy to travel with, and feels like a one piece paddle when assembled and locked. It is a little heavy. I used it for a week in Mexico without any problems. Checked it in my gear bag with the rest of my stuff.

You are welcome to stop by and check it out sometime. I'm in Littleton and work in Aurora.

I am the lendal rep so I am a bit biased but I think these are awesome paddles. If you are coming out to the platte river clean up I will bring a mine with and you can try it out.

I snapped one in half

They are a solid paddle at least until I flipped over and rolled up with only half of it. Luckly for the 4 peice system all I needed was to order a new paddle shaft but still it sucked, the blades however are BOMBER!!! they would do well to make a single peice sometime
