The uniqueness of the G-power Falcon dragonboat paddle comes from its capability of adjusting the shaft length through the QNect system. The QNect system is a simple and efficient way to adjust the length of the paddle according to your height or comfort using an allen key. Furthermore, it’s quick and easy to disconnect the handle from the shaft to allow for more compact storage.
Due to the adjustable joint, it has been observed that water manages to seep into the shaft. For any paddler looking to use this paddle regularly, they have to ensure the joint is securely tightened. Additionally to store the paddle with the blade tip facing up so that water can be drained out during storage.
On the upside, it is an excellent light weight paddle weighing in at 400g or 14oz with such simplicity and smooth finishes. I liked this paddle when I first saw it because the blade is so well designed and well balanced it just enters the water without any plonking. The paddle has reasonable flex and is not too stiff, which makes it comfortable to paddle over longer periods. I would also highly recommend this paddle for anyone who does a lot of travelling interstate or overseas and needs to disassemble the paddle in order to fit into their luggage.
