Been using Knysna paddles for a while now and have found no trouble hey. Only when i wanted to put my ski on my shoulder, i wedged the paddle in the sand vertically to use both hands, and some sand had wedged into the end between the carbon layers. But thats my stupidity.

I`ve been using Knysna paddles (Bratcha I, II and Swing LD) for 15 years with no problems. Great paddles and great value for money. In fact, I`ll take this opportunity to say thank you to the team at Knysna!

Been using the Knysna Paddles for a few years now, and they are great. I have the swing 4 and max. I use one for white water, using it down the Avon descent in 2010 more as a shovel than a paddle (very dry river) and it is very tough! My max is for ocean and gives me immediate power when I need it for acceleration. Highly recommend them.

I'm also using the Swing 7 from Knysna for the last 8 years and I've never had any trouble, they very light and very well build.

Thanks to Albert at Knysna
