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.

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.
This paddle set up is perfect!!! I love it. (My first time out) I paddled for a good 30 minutes without shoulder pain. Thanks for your help.

My wife and I have already been out on the water...and look forward to many, many more outings. She loves (Versa), and it was exactly what she needed. You guys are doing great things for adaptive paddling. It is an amazing design! We can't thank you enough. Keep up the good work!
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.
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.
It’s been great. Great. Great. That’s all I can say.
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.
John Lee, Cal Poly
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.
Effortless. Natural. Absolutely awesome.
This is something (my spouse) and I can do together.

Excellent cesign and versatility. It provides freedom and independence to my clients. We wouldn't be able to have our adaptive paddling program without it.
My friend (for whom I bought the Versa Paddle) is finally able to kayak again now that she has this mount! Thank you for the great customer serice, but more importantly, for making a product that allows folks with physical challenges to continue doing the activities they love.
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, with an explanation of the issue, resulted in them shipping me a new part that has saved my season and will get me back on on the water many, many times this year.
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.

I had major shoulder surgery from a torn labrum. I never skipped a beat with kayaking because of Versa and Gamut.
Since losing the use of my left arm in a logging accident, I have been in a constant state of adaptation, creating ways to enjoy the same activities I did before the injury.
It's obvious that the Angle Oar line of products was born of the same line of need, desire and ingenuity.

My shoulders didn't hurt afterwards!

After my shoulder surgery, I thought I'd never be able to kayak again.
