A buddy of mine broke his Lendal 2 different times. He is a great paddler, but not overly aggresive or abusive on gear. I must give a +1 to the Aquabound. It isnt perfect, but it is working well. I have paddled some class III and easy IV with it to make sure it will work for me and it works well enough. I found mine used (never used, just stored) for about $75 I think. More money for beer at the takeout or a couple more trips than if I had went with the Werner.
There is a thread (on here I think) of a person who made their own using the available kit. Otherwise, Confluence Kayaks offers this service as well. This would be great if you find a good deal on a gently used paddle you like. I understand their conversions are pretty stiff and paddle well.
