3-piece carbon straight shaft: $150 at www.aquabound.com
The Aquabound Edge is a whitewater canoe paddle, and we tested the three-piece version. Though known to be durable, the Aquabound’s blades are more flexile than other paddles we tested, which will reduce the performance of the paddler in terms of power per stroke. As a breakdown paddle, the Edge is easy to pack and store for travel, fly-in missions, or as a spare paddle on wilderness trips.
