This SeaSense Telescopic Mini Paddle extends from 22 inches to 42 inches, and includes dual telescopic locking devices, which work without hassle. Pole tightens with a twist. The aluminum shaft features a corrosion-resistant design, and the blade and hand grips have a high impact molded design.
These are decent little collapsible paddles. My complaint is that it's difficult to unlock the twist connectors after using the paddles. Arrows indicating direction of lock/unlock would be nice as would none slippery locking nuts.
Just used these today, floating on the river. It was really helpful to navigate around trees and faster rapids on the water. Only giving 4 stars due to the locking collapsible sections not being grippier to make it easier to lock/unlock the sections.
This is light weight and feeling not sure about bringing it as a safety paddle. It feels like it could snap if tightening tight. Handle versus paddle never aligned. Otherwise feels like a decent paddle toy for kids boat
The only problem I have been having is trying to collapse the paddle after use it has a weird twist lock which locks in both directions so it's hard to losen the lock when you can't tell if your locking or unlocking the paddle
Seems to fill the need of an emergancy aid for a small fishing boat.
It works and was great for the price I paid. It isn't very long though, but I guess that's ok for a back up paddle.
Works in a pinch and is veery sturdy.
Works great well made.
