I honestly think that Robson should discontinue this paddle. First of all, you can also buy the same blades without the Robson "sun" logo from Ainsworth for half the price. And both - the Robson and the Ainsworth - have been bought by members of our club and didn't last one season. A total of THREE of these paddles left us within one season, two with broken blades, one with a broken shaft at the shaft/blade interface...

Robson makes great paddles. There are quite a few old STUDs out there who haven't suffered a bit over the last ten years, and my wife is a total fanatic of her Lotus Lady, but the Combat is cheap as in "cheap". Hands Off!
