Yesterday while paddling in some shallow water Paddle snapped off right where paddle meets the shaft. My Pro Angler is new (won on 10/16/10) and got all the accessories. Is there a warranty on those paddles ?

Yes. Contact your dealer.

Gairiw ,although your paddle will be warrantied by Hobie(best kayak in the industry); I'd upgrade to a fiberglass handle that Hobie makes. With the extra strain you'll be putting on it, the OEM paddle may not last. All my Hobies have upgraded paddles, never an issue with a better paddle. Good luck, although Hobie will always have your back.

We even experienced some issues with our fiberglass shaft paddles in the past few years, but have overcome them now. The paddles currently built are nice and solid.
