While I own and really enjoy several Werner models, the lightweight AT Xception is one fine tool. Even before putting it in the water it feels just right, so perfectly balanced. The bent shaft feels so natural (though a little more flex would be preferred), and the blades are the right sized for longer trips or more aggressive rock-garden style paddling. No flutter whatsoever. Not totally sold on the ferrule, but have had no problems. Overall one impressive piece of gear.
