I can only second Strano’s comment, I have been using H2O Team Paddles (with a straight shaft, the position of the bend in the bent shaft paddle did not work for me) exclusively in my open boat as well as in my creek C1(different length paddl;e for each boat.
They hold up extremely well to my abusive paddling style, much better so than my previous Werner Bandit.
One really great feature is that the blade is very wide at the bottom, about 2 inches wider than most other blades, which gives you great purchas in shallow water.
My only complaint is that on the old style stickers (the new paddles have a better sticker, as far as I know), the 2 fell off on both blades, and now my friends are making fun of me about paddling with a HO!!!
