Just used the Bending Branches new rec paddle Sunrise GS. I purchased it from Austin Canoe and Kayak at the lowest price i have found for $89. A great buy for being fiberglass and having options. I'm very new to the sport, but have found a few things that I do and do not like about this paddle.
Overall I think it is an awesome paddle, it seems to be very strong and has lots of options with the feathering. It is very easy to put together and take apart the two piece shaft with the single push button. The grips built into the shaft are wonderful if you plan on wearing gloves, but if not you will definitely end up with blisters. You can really get a moving with this paddle and it is very light. I have no regrets at all with this paddle, and I highly recommend it.
