Not sure if this is appropriate but we just started Northern Light Paddlesports and we make three piece Greenland and Aleutian paddles out of carbon fiber. website is http://www.northernlightpaddles.com

If this is not the correct venue to bring up our new company apologies in advance.

yes I think you are right and Gnarlydog is really trying to destroy one of our paddles. he certainly is not being nice to them! so far it is holding up but I am afraid he is just going to take that as a personal challenge!
Yours will be fine as long as you don't lend it to him!

Paul

Paul, Gnarly dog has been trying to distroy my gear for a cupal of years too, he is a good no holds bard, almost to distruction test my products have impruved from his indiscriminat testing , he holds no alegence to eny brand and I think the paddeling comunity benifits from his revews.

I've been using the Greenland sectional paddle for just about a month now. It is a thing of beauty, built to work hard and last a long time. It feels wonderful in my hands on the water and as a bonus, fits nicely into my boat bag.

Hi Paul,

Truly and fairly busted... It is still very much on my hit list. I'm sending a couple of things to your personal eMail that may be useful/interesting in the mean time.

I have just heard from someone who has a Northern Lights Paddle, he say,s it the best he has ever used, much better than his previous Greenland, so it looks like we have another good product.
