Full Review:
This paddles rocks! I play boated the Lower Wind River and took it Creek boating down the Green Truss. While using the paddle, I noticed how much power I had from the blades thanks to the minimal flex from the blades while taking large boof strokes or big braces. The 200cm fit me perfectly. I think I will be switching from my Werner Powerhouse over to this AT Hercules.

"The Good" List: Very versatile paddle if you are a honey badger or just getting into the sport. From Creek boating to play boating, this paddle does both excellent. There is no need to have a dedicated creek or play paddle because this thing does them both.

"The Not so Good List": It does not match my PFD.

The Bottom Line: I would recommend this paddle to anyone who is planning on doing both play boating and creek boating.
