    This thing is awesome! In the Yak world you know learning to effectively fumble with multiple things at once is key. This helps with that in many ways. For example, you’re hooked up on a fish, the current is spinning you, you’re trying to hold your rod and keep the line tight. This paddle is light to grab with one hand while other is holding rod, and help you get back in line to your catch. Next instance, your line gets hooked on a mangrove root, and you just happen to be a hair too far to grab your line without going in the drink. You grab this paddle, and use hook end to grab line out. This thing is so versatile. I also use it to scrape barnacles for sheepshead chum, or grab a rope throw to pull it around pylon. If you’ve got a yak, you need this. Save yourself from many hassles, and at least make it appear you’re better than you are as a yak angler. Hope this helped someone make the decision to get one of these, and look forward to the thank you, and “man, you were so right. I needed this”.

    I’m a fan of sea kayaking, but am always getting harassed by this GD whales. Those just won’t leave me alone. I though I would gear up with a few of these Backwater Assault Hand Paddles to even up the score. I bought two to qualify for free shipping and handling and strapped them over my shoulder for an easy access QuickDraw should I run into those flippered farkers. Sure enough, an hour out and one of the real shady-looking ones is squeaking my ear off. I drew my Backwater Assault Hand Paddle at once and launched myself right at his blowhole. He was quick and I only grazed his ventral fin. He turned on me faster than a potato salad on the Fourth of July. For a minute, Satan’s Shamu had one of my arms in his pointy jaws and I thought not even my Backwater Assault Hand Paddle would be enough, but I tucked the pain deep down inside and used my free hand to draw my second Backwater Assault Hand Paddle. Thank the lord almighty I had purchased two, saving on shipping and handling costs.
    The water ran red from both our bodies, and mixed with the salty sea.
    I lived to write the tale, and I imagine he did too. But I bet that churlish cephalopod has learned some respect for the Backwater Assault Hand Paddle.

    Now, I don’t have to screw around using my paddle slipping and sliding when I get blown into the banks. This little paddle is way easier to handle and gets the job done better. I also like the little hook it has for grabbing ropes etc. that get out of my reach.
