Feather Brand Boat or Canoe Paddle
It's a good starting out paddle
I was not expecting too much from this paddle as it's relatively cheap compared to higher end paddles that are often recommended costing 3-5 times as much. For the cost, it does it's job, good starting out paddle to learn and get accustomed if you're new. Doesn't generate a lot of power. I will be getting a better paddle in the near future. As far as aesthetics go, it's rough around the edges, you can tell it's not a quality paddle on inspection but you get what you paid for.

Well worth it
I ordered these taking a chance on them, being a little skeptical about them with the price being so low. They arrived in just a couple days, all three together.
The finish is a little rough on the tops, but not so bad as to hurt your hands. My 12 yr old and 9 yr old had no complaints about the roughness.
They are light weight, not causing fatigue from using them for a couple hours.
They move the canoe along fine. They aren't fast, but they get the job done. Even when the kids got tired of paddling and I was the only one paddling the one did a fine job.

Great in my kayak!
I purchased a 3' paddle to take along in my kayak while fishing. I use my kayak paddle to get where I am going put it away when I get there then use the 3' paddle to turn and position my kayak or to troll along the shore it sure beats dealing with the long kayak paddle when your trying to fish. I also like that the paddle in made in my families home town of Calhoun City Mississippi. I call it my Calhoun City trolling motor. It has made a big difference in my kayak fishing more pleasure and fishing than fighting that long kayak paddle.

Bad finish on paddle
The finish is poor on this paddle. I never thought that would matter but it is rough. I will have to sand it on the handle end before I use it. I have bought other paddles of different brands and they were much smoother. 3 foot paddles are hard to find or I might have considered sending it back. This is the only bad product I have ever purchased from Bass Pro. I hope they read this and stop ordering these.
