Re: New Paddle
In Response To: Re: New Paddle ()

: So far so good. I took it out today and gave it a good test in the
: wind. I am pretty sure that if I had rigged up a yoke I could
: have flown it like a kite. The waves weren't too bad out on the
: sound, but it was blowing really hard. The paddle really wanted
: to pick up and fly away, but I held on tight. In between wind
: gusts I really noticed the lighter swing weight and the smooth
: entry and exit from the water. It was a bit kerplunky on all but
: a perfectly placed entry, but miles better than my old blade. It
: has tons of bracing and skulling force, and although I didn't
: roll with it today, I am pretty sure it will work well for that
: too. I think I am gonna enjoy the Ikelos.

UPDATE: 10/17, Roll tested Roll approved ;-}
