Gearlab paddles

Interested in the Gearlab Greenland style paddle. Anyone have any info on them? Not finding much in the way of reviews.

  • Give us a link, so we can take a look
    at them. There's so many paddle makers that you may not find someone on pnet that's used a particular one, but we know the principles of paddle design and construction.

    Here.s the link http//www.store.gearlab.com.tw thanks for any help.
  • One concern I had was ...
    With the push-button ferulle - these usually wobble. However, they seem to have an updated design in their current version that has some sort of a T, which supposedly removes the wobble between the two halves.

    There was a recent thread on these paddles here - did you find it?
  • interesting
    I had one of their GPs a few years ago. As a standard button ferrule, it did wobble a bit. I found the shoulders too close together, so, had to trade it away. I noticed from their specs that the loom length did not grow proportionately with the overall paddle length, and wondered if many taller users might find the looms too short. I thought the blade shapes and finish were good. (All this from an occasional GP user. I like the concept, but have not found the right paddle. No other GPers around my area.)
  • Hmm, my Werner Camano with its
    push button ferrule doesn't wobble. I had to carefully sand the male end with 400 paper after the ferrule refused to release.

    Maybe makers are selling slightly loose ferrules so they don't get calls about non-release.
  • review.
    I wrote this review last year, http://qajaqrolls.com/2013/04/gearlab-oyashio-composite-greenland-paddle.html

    I have loaned these paddles to numerous people who have enjoyed using them.
