Nope. This paddle is made for the Perception Hi Life, which is a hybrid kayak (has both stand up paddleboard and kayak qualities), designed for fishing, diving, and swimming, and not necessarily for speed of movement. The paddle is great because you can use it for poling and standing up, by using the third piece, or if only using two pieces, like a regular kayak paddle, and the unused third piece is easliy transported on the Hi Life kayak to go along with you as needed. If you want to use the Hi Life kayak as a more recreational kayak, for speeding around and precison mobility, you might consider buying a paddle for that too. I also purchased the Bending Brances Sunlight paddle which is adjustable for feathering.
Greenville, SC. Everyone loves these combos. I've had mine a year now and it is high quality.
There’s a part that goes inside he track and a part that screws into it. But I sent the paddle back because it was too heavy for me.
