The paddles work well but seriously lack drip rings, and decathlon do not stock these as an accessory.
To use these with the Itiwit 3 inflatable kayak, purchase a slightly longer paddle than required as the kayak is quite wide but they work just fine.
Also purchase a paddle leash which we attached to our buoyancy aids so not to lose the paddle, Decathlon do sell this accessory which is handy.
All in all a good entry level paddle, worth the money, just need to buy drip rings so you don’t get too wet while paddling.
Question = Do these oars float or sink ?
Strongly made and comfortable to use, only criticism is could do with drip guards.
Good for us as first time kayakers so haven’t used one before , seems to be good . Not easy to get apart after use as the button doesn’t seem to go in far enough
Happy with advice and product. But on first outing a side tube deflated. Returned to shop who confirmed leaking valve offered to repair or refund Took refund. Return process handled well.
Add. Not as easy to inflate as video suggests. Frankly hard work. Having said that a younger person may have made lighter work of it.
Sat rather high in the water when only a single occupant and therefore subject to being blown around
Would consider electric pump but notes with kayak suggest use of invalidates warranty
Seems strong good quality product.
Bought this as a spare for my kayak - works well and is well made - would recommend it.
We are pleased with this 2 part paddle but have yet to buy some drip rings. It is comfortable to use although we should have gone for the longer size than that shown on the diagram in the shop which would probably have been better with our inflatable canoe which is higher on the sides that expected.
Easy to use and lightweight.
In store it wasn't made clear that they came in different sizes. When we came to use them we find that, out of 2 sets, we had 3 of one end and one of the other. Looking at the labels when preparing to return the one "set" off 2 identical hassles we realised that they come in different sizes and we'd end up using the shortest one...which is far too short to make life easier. When we've spent yet another 24.99 we'll probably have a good set of 'cheap' paddles.
They work... If they fit together.
Be careful to get 2 different halves.
