Aqua-Bound Sting Ray Hybrid Posi-Lok 2-Piece Kayak Paddle:
Bought the Sting-Ray paddle to replace a cheaper aluminum-shaft paddle I had bee using. Much lower swing weight makes longer paddles much easier. The paddle seems stiff and efficient. Overall, I give it a 10.
I have a number of Aqua-Bound paddles, largely because they seem to represent a good value proposition (quality and design versus cost) compared to the competition. The Stingray is my 'light day' paddle for those occasions where my wrists are a little tender or I just don't want to move as much water per stroke. Generally I prefer a paddle with a bit more surface than the Ray, but it has it's place. It would be a good choice for smaller or younger paddlers... or those who prefer higher tempo. I have never had a problem with the sticking ferrules (my good fortune)mentioned by others. The ferrules do fit more precisely (a good thing?) than other brands. I paddle exclusively in salt water and always 'break' and wipe down my paddles (particularly the ferrules) after use. I do store them assembled / single piece.
I LOVE THIS PADDLE!!! Light weight, nice control and at a great price. I feel most paddles in the market today have an odd problem here and there, but Aquabound has always had great customer support. They have a customer for life.
The Stingray paddle would be a good general-purpose sea kayaking paddle if not for one fatal flaw: The snap buttons that held my hybrid 4 piece paddles together rusted out and began to break after only one year of use in a marine environment. These metal pieces are not made of a marine-grade stainless steel.
