Hi Folks....

Somewhere on this forum I read a post that mentioned a maker of Greenland paddles that are cheaper than the Feathercraft carries ...I can't seem to find that post again, however...Can anyone tell me where to order a well made GP that does not cost a fortune? Many thanks...

PM

There are some single-piece GP cheaper than 2-piece FC Klatwa, but if you are planning to travel with your kayak, you need a 2-piece paddle. From time to time I check the prices when something comes up, and so far the Klatwa has been the cheapest 2-piece model. There are some very nice US-made composite 2-piece models, more expensive than Klatwa. Now $CDN is rising, so may be US 2-piece models will eventually become cheaper than Klatwa.

Pretty much the same as the Klatwa in design. Very good quality. My fiance paddles with it and loves it.

Don Beale http://www.bealepaddles.com/ used to make a 2 piece. I have a 1 piece and it is much nicer paddle than the Klatwa and custom made for you.
