: Wait, do I understand you correctly-you couldn't find a Euro blade
: you liked?
No, I couldn't find a Euro blade that I liked ... a lot. Actually, there are a lot of really horrible Euro paddles out there, so bad in fact that I would much rather use a good Greenland paddle than many of them (and that's saying something). Most cheapo, entry level Euro paddles really do stink and I totally understand why people who haven't tried a really nice one think that they all stink and end off being seduced by the nice feel and forgiving nature of the Greenland paddle. Good Euro paddles don't come cheap, it's a fact. Buy the best that you can afford and save money elsewhere. I would much rather have a nice paddle and a crappy boat than the other way around. One of the nice things about GP's is that if you're crafty, you can have yourself a really nice paddle for the price of a good 2x4. A really nice Euro will cost you more.
