We now recommend Cannon Wave 4 piece
The Cannon Escape 4-Piece Kayak Paddle with aluminum shaft (a.k.a. Serenity) is ideal for air travel or those who want the most compact possible spare paddle. A four-piece paddle gives maximum flexibility for airline packing, instead of taking the chance of being charged for an extra piece of luggage as you might with a two-piece that couldn't be stowed in a bag. These paddles assemble snug, and feel like single piece units. The downside is that they are sometimes a bit of a tug-of-war to get apart. Some graphite from a soft pencil will help.
This paddle is a 235cm (92") 4-section version of the two-piece model model we carry, but in order to keep the price from reaching lofty heights, the shaft sections are not nylon ferruled. In other words, each of the three joints has direct aluminum to aluminum contact, so these must be taken apart & rinsed after salt water usage as you would with most aluminum shaft models. If you don't it could corrode from the salt and become a one piece paddle.
Each section of this paddle is 25-1/4", which is shorter than equivalent Aquabound products. On the Aqua's, the shaft sections are longer than the blades, so they will not pack down as small as these do. These come with dark yellow blades only, no white unless you order three or more, sorry. If you want a shorter size than 235cm, the best bet is to carefully hacksaw one female end of either shaft section down, and re-drill whichever hole you use (left-hand offset, right-hand offset, or in-line) using the cut away scrap as a guide. These run $119.
