    Kayak Paddle

    I was out on the lake yesterday, and I noticed that I had a stress fracture around 3/4 of the shaft where the two-piece paddles connect. Of course this was just a few hours in the trip. My buddy got a couple of sticks as splints and we jammed a similarly sized stick inside the tube for added support. The paddle is actually stronger than it was before, however, I believe it's time for a replacement.
    I need some recommendations for the best kayak paddle. My yak is 36" wide and I'm always in the raised seat position of my predator MX. Here are a few paddles. Please let me know if you have experience with any of them and tell me your thoughts.

    Check out the Werner Camano. A little pricey but well worth it in the long run.

    Aqua Bound makes a good paddle, not as $$$ as Werner. Check out the Stingray. All the paddles in that review are garbage IMHO.
