Tell Me about my paddle

I bought a dagger rpm today for one heck of a deal. The guy selling it to me threw in the skirt, paddle, and yak towers for a Yakima rack. Now, the paddle is one I am not familiar with. It appears to be all aluminum and has Synergy with a large cursive S logo and schlegel tech III

on the blade. Google produced no info in my searches. Can anyone tell me about my new paddle?

They used to make boats and paddles. Schlegel was their brands of paddles. They made some famous WW boats. The best known was probably the Topo Duo, a WW tandem.

Edit: apparently they are still in business:

I got a Big Spoons 150 in the same way. Couldn’t find anything about the company in a internet search. Anybody know about Big Spoons paddles?

Out of Business
Big Spoons was a little company in Oregon that was struggling in the early 2000s. Their paddles have a good reputation.
