I own a kayak rental shop in California, and as such I have seen my fair share of broken kayak paddles. I purchased eight Cannon Cascade E-Series kayak paddles for my kayak rental shop. I was hoping I could get away with using cheaper paddles than the ones I had been using before, which were Werner kayak paddles. The gamble paid off!
Cannon has proved itself, in my eyes, to be a durable and affordable kayak paddle brand. The Cannon Cascade E-Series kayak paddle features a black anodized aluminum shaft, and is available in one piece or two piece formats. I chose the two piece since you can adjust the paddle’s blades, and it is very impressive.
The Cannon Cascade E-Series kayak paddle cuts through the water with minimal effort, and control is a breeze with its ovaled hand grips. I especially enjoy the flutter-free stroke the kayak paddle provides when it slices through the waves. All this and more, and in a 32oz. paddle!
The Cannon Cascade E-Series kayak paddle retails for $59.99, and is worth every penny. When you read this review, it’s important for you to understand how intense my testing was. The average kayak paddle at my rental shop is on the water about 20 hours a week. This is a very abusive environment for a kayak paddle, especially when you have beginners banging them into rocks and scraping them on random things. The Cannon Cascade E-Series kayak paddle out-performs kayak paddles costing three times as much.
I hope enjoyed my Cannon Cascade E-Series kayak paddle review. I also hope that you try a Cannon paddle next time you’re in the market for one. If you haven’t gathered from my review, I give them my enthusiastic endorsement.
