    Must have been a one piece. All mine are laminated shafts (up to four pieces). Unlikely to break due to run out.

    Nope, it was laminated -- cedar outsides, something darker in the middle. One of the cedar outer parts had the runout problem.

    They seem like nice paddles, but I'd be careful about picking one.... that piece of wood should never have been built into a paddle shaft.
