After almost 10 years of paddling with starboard and quickblade carbon paddles, I got myself an evolution carbon paddle. I love that it comes in three pieces, making it easy to store and transport while traveling. However, I do wish that the height adjustment range was more accommodating for petite people like me. Currently, when I piece the paddle together, it is at zero height (i.e., I do not have to extend the paddle shaft), which is slightly taller than I prefer. Nevertheless, the paddle is incredibly lightweight and easy to use, making it my preferred choice when using on the Bondi 9'3 board.
