After a long time with a hard and heavy paddle, the Robson Lady Lotus comes as a real relief. I got mine about two years ago and I am very, very happy with it. The smaller blades and the thin shaft make for stressless paddling; no burning forearms or aching shoulders after two hours on the water.
If you have "above average" hands (my glove size is 8), the shaft is even on the brink of "gee, this is REALLY thin", but as I am a tad above average (1,75m / 5'9") most women will perfectly love it that way. It's a quality product, everything looks and feels solid, and it might well live for decades. Plus it looks gorgeous!
- "easy" on hands and arms
- precise handling in the water
- "shock absorbing" shaft
- hefty price (you pay for the quality)
