When the Paddle Breaks
I stepped on my Grey Owl carbon canoe paddle.
It's carbon fiber, so it's very strong... but not that strong! It fell with the bent shaft facing down, I stepped on the shaft.
It didn't break entirely through, but carbon splinters along the shaft looked like very bad mojo. I figured I had just cost myself $200+...
... but the good people at Grey Owl saved the day and fixed it for $60 - replaced the shaft with a new one!
