The Kwik Tek® 3-piece kayak paddle offers you a rugged, telescoping aluminum design that extends from 30 to 42 in. The convenient boat hook handle and blade are brightly colored for signaling. It floats if dropped into the water and the blade screws off, shortening the length to only 19 in, for stowing in tight places.

I just needed an inexpensive paddle for boat play in pool and maybe lake. This one is perfect cuz it breaks down and can be assembled to two different lengths. I needed a bit shorter than the standard and this one is perfect.
I sent this back...the product design is not great...the hand grip area is plastic that appears would wear out quickly. The 3 piece design is not as convenient as the 2 piece. the paddles are a good 1-1.5 feet shorter than the others i have. These would be OK for a small raft at the lake, in a cove...but for longer distances or open water they just don't seem to cut it. Spend a bit more and buy the better ones.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
