I've done a bit of archival work on this topic but most real discussion is from 2005. I'm looking for a bent shaft canoe paddle. Must be light. Must also still allow me to j or c stroke. I'll probably use it in a tandem but also in my next canoe which could just be a Hemlock solo. ( I have a Flashfire and a Dagger Reflection 15.) So far I've gleaned that a ZRE could be the one. If so, which model? I'll shorten the shaft till it feels right.
