Adjustable Kahuna Stick - Kalani
- Product Review (submitted on January 3, 2013):
- My wife bought me the Adjustable Big Stick for Christmas. I have been using it for about a week and a half. Overall I love the Blade - best design of any paddle I have used. I am curious to see how long it will last (although it seems to be doing well so far), but I definitely love the feel of the shape. The adjustability of the Big Stick is definitely a plus - especially as someone who commutes to work on a board. The only two things I dislike so far is the metal "clinky" sound with each paddle stroke (a result of two pieces of metal rather than one solid piece) and some whistling which comes from the holes in the metal (necessary for adjustability). My single piece sticks are quieter and just feel slightly better to me when I am paddling. Obviously this is a trade off for the adjustability. If you are looking for a stick for commuting, traveling, or to fit various size riders than the Adjustable Big Stick is a great choice. If you are looking for the best feel when you are paddling than I would stick with a single piece paddle. Personally I see myself going back to my single piece sticks. However I will be doing some modifications to those and ordering 1-2 Blades - Gotta give props to Kahuna Creations for a great design with their Blade!
