The perception carolina 14.5 I'm picking up tomorrow was originally suppose to come with a paddle. The seller decided they are going to keep the paddle. The price was reduced $100. I currently have a Carlisle Day Tripper for my rec boat. So looking for suggestion on what paddle to get for the carolina. Only thing I have noticed with the daytripper is sometimes it starts to rub between my thumb and pointer finger, but not sure if thats my fault or the paddle. I'm 5'8" BTW.
