        Comments about Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

        I have a question about the handle of all 3 kayak paddles that were in my local West Marine store. All 3 have just one side of the paddle with an 18-inch "bump" added to the shaft, farther out toward the paddle than you can reach with your hand on that side. The bump sticks out maybe 1/2-inch and is covered by the black sleeve on that side of the paddle. The store employees didn't know what it was for. The tag on each of the 3 models didn't explain what it is for. What is is for? I always use kayak paddles with them adjusted 90-degrees to allow my left hand to stay fixed to the paddle, whilst letting my right hand "spin" while paddling, then grabbing it tight just before pulling on the right-side. Other people like it adjusted for the other hand. So if the "bump" is there to better fit that hand, it would suggest that West Marine defaults to right-handed paddlers vs. left-handed paddlers. Another idea is that it improves floating the paddle in case it were dropped in the water.

        Any ideas???

          Comments about Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

          Overall very good quality, however on my particular paddle the shaft was very tight and difficult to insert and remove at the connection. My husband used a belt sander in his shop to reduce the diameter of the aluminuim insert section (just a small amount) and it now assembles and disassembles with ease. I like the paddle very much!

            This paddle is just the right balance and weight. I have used it many times on flat and class 2 water. The bright color has saved me many times from leaving it behind in tall grass.

            Comments about Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

            It is sturdy, reliable, and durable (doesn't bend or flex when I get stuck in the muck and use it as a gondola pole). It halves for storage and has three angles for personal preference. Really like it and the price was very right.

            (Also, I could only find this product at West Marine after doing an exhaustive online search.)

              Comments about Sea Kayak 140 Paddle:

              I bought this paddle as a spare paddle for my Folbot kayak. I just so happened to try it the other day in the ocean and was very impressed. This paddle could very well be your only paddle you need for day trips. It is quick, effortless, and not too heavy for an Aluminum shaft. Has good adjustment for feathering, I did find the grip a little odd but that may just be me. I would love to see this in a nice carbon shaft. However in its current state, it matches and rivals paddles costing twice as much. Think I may buy another and add a carbon shaft.
