The Insanity is a fantastic lightweight adjustable paddle, constructed with a fiberglass blade and shaft. While this makes it a bit heavier than our lightest-weight paddle, it also means it is more affordable than the uber-light Werner Trance. It is the only model in our test that does not have an adjustment system, which some of our reviewers loved and other found to be quite annoying. It also features a comfortable and ergonomic grip that was one of our testers' favorites. We love this paddle for its performance and construction.
It's not always true of life, but it is true of this paddle. The KIALOA Insanity no longer comes in a non-adjustable model. Find out more below.
If you're looking for something a little more budget-friendly, the BPS Alloy scored well overall, and the iGK product is also a good choice, although it is in the same price range as the Insanity.
