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 a new paddle. My yak is 36" wide and I'm always in the raised seat position of my predator MX. Here are a few paddles https://goo.gl/inXYU6.
Please let me know if you have experience with any of them and tell me your thoughts.
Thanks in advance
