Chris, fret not. I was just saying that for me personally, I like the flatter face and finer blade entry of the cheaper Werners. The Ikelos is a super-nice paddle, really about the nicest paddle that money can buy. Like the Corryvrecken though, it's a bit big for me and you can't shorten a foam core paddle. It's not too big for you. If I were you, I probably would have bought one too. I'm sure that you'll be happy with it.
