Dave Phillips

After a second spinal surgery and 6+ months recovery time, I just this week was able to install and use my versa paddle. It's awesome! :) It's clear that I would not be able to kayak without it, and I am very thankful to you for creating such a product.

Reason for Using:

Tracy J., Veteran

As far as the Angle Oar, I love it. I’m a disabled veteran and only have limited use of my right shoulder and arm. I never thought I’d be able to use a kayak. That thing has really made a difference. I love it, and I really appreciate that you guys created something so amazing!

Arm/Shoulder Weakness

Reason for Using:

John Stewart, 77

Montana

Because of torn tendons in my biceps, after a couple of minutes of paddling, my shoulder starts to kill me. Now I use Versa and Gamut to support the paddle so I can continue paddling and fishing with my wife.

I want to thank you and this company for creating this product. I have Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and the last two years have been miserable with declining health. My hands and shoulders have been a big problem with dislocations and breaking bones lately. I thought I would have to give up kayaking

I'm glad I came across your website because I was researching for a while and found a few competitive products, but nothing looked nearly as comprehensive or compatible with many boats. Thanks for making products like this. I work at Shepherd Center which is a rehab center for spinal cord and brain injuries and stuff like this is just priceless for them.

I am so impressed with the Gamut Paddle Holder. I have left side hemiplegia after surviving a brain bleed six years ago. I was so relieved that it worked as well as I had hoped. It is making getting out on the water fun again. Meg is wonderful with personal and prompt assistance. I recommend Angle Oar to anyone.

The Gamut works well for me. It's a more relaxing paddle experience, and I can paddle farther. I do not have to grip the handle much since it's "resting" on the device. When I'm done yakking, my shoulders do not feel as much pain as I used to.

I had major shoulder surgery from a torn labrum. I never skipped a beat with kayaking because of Versa and Gamut.

You can learn a lot about a company by the manner in which they treat customers after the sale has been made. Angle Oar’s post sale support is phenomenal. I took my kayak out for the first time this paddling season and ran into an issue that cut my day short.

An email to Angle Oar... resulted in them shipping me a new part that has saved my season. I was blown away with the service I received. The commitment to the customer is exceptional, and I am so happy I chose this company and the Versa system to help me get back into the water.

Excellent design and versatility. It provides freedom and independence to my clients. We wouldn't be able to have our adaptive paddling program without it.

By the time we got back in, I still felt like I could paddle even longer, where as in the past I'd get back to shore and be pretty much spent.

Adaptive Paddling Program

Reason for Using:

Ruth Morrow

New York

I was out for about an hour (my first time with Versa after major shoulder surgery). It was just perfect.I could still feel the tendon in my shoulder slowly move back and forth, but there was no pain. Normally, if I lift my shoulder, I’ll hearing popping and experience some pain, but there wasn’t any of that.

We purchased one for the sole purpose of providing our disabled 9-year-old son the opportunity to participate in what lake life has to offer. (The Versa Paddle) did exactly as advertised, and he is no longer when we go kayaking, but is now a participant. It makes all the difference.

I get to see things from a different perspective than I do on land in my wheelchair. I love how kayaking makes me feel grounded and calm, while feeling free and excited.
