I recently bought a Dagger Quintus whitewater canoe paddle at a yard sale. I think it dates back to the 1980s or so. It seems like a very nice paddle. Does anyone know how much it would have sold for new?
I gave $50 for a new one 2 years ago.
Hmmm, is it wood? Mine is wood with
"shoulders" at the top edges of the blade. Back in those days, a GOOD wooden paddle was often not much over $100, if the maker had the blade carving process semi-automated.
It’s a fiberglass paddle with a purple blade, no less.
