Has anyone tried or have any experience with Adventure Technology paddles? Specifically F-core series Xception superlight or Exodus superlight.
I have had an Xception for several years and it has served me well. The grip angle just feels right, it is light, good catch, no flutter. The ability to make it longer or change the angle is a bonus feature. I also have the slightly heavier touring versions in both bent and straight for visitors and all are excellent paddles. My favorite paddle manufacturer.
Yes, a statement.
I have two Xception tours. One is about 15 years old and still in great shape. Excellent paddle, especially for a low stroke style.
However, I prefer the foam core Werner Kalliste, also a low stroke style. But that does not mean that one is better. They feel very different, so given the cost you should try both before deciding.
