I have enjoyed trying different paddles and seeing charatcteristics....the zre powersurge blade seems to slip into the water so well and when you pull it is stable, while other paddles want to zig zag a bit. The large surface area paddles are really torque the smaller ones easy to turn over fast. Longer shaft feels better I have been warned it will screw up my shoulders.
I think I am doomed to collect a few paddles. Looking for a paddle with a really large blade face (like 125si) with a double recurve like you see in the new zeland and tahitian boats. Are any paddles like this available?
Anyone in california cut a custom blade? Fun stuff.
Thank you for any reply.
