Nice budget paddle

Like many folks I got into kayak fishing on a tight budget. However, I knew that I didn't want a cheap aluminum paddle. Along came the Carlisle Magic Plus. For $100 MSRP (got mine for $80 at Dunham's with a coupon) this has been an exceptional paddle for the money. If you're on a budget I'd highly recommend checking out this paddle.

Now, with that said, until recently I couldn't figure out why anyone would spend $200 plus on a paddle. When I upgraded to my Cuda LT I realized my 230 cm Carlisle Magic Plus was not ideal so I shopped for a 240 cm paddle. I got a deal on a Werner Shuna Hooked & I have to tell you nice paddles do make a difference. The Magic Plus still gets 5 stars since I think it's a lot of paddle for the money. For $80-$100 there's no reason to buy a cheap aluminum paddle but I have to tell you, if you can afford it splurge on a nice paddle.
