I have a carbon Novorca 88 inch GP with a 24 inch loom and 3.5 inch blade that works very well for me. My first 88 inch Novorca had a 20 inch loom and I hated it. Increasing loom to 24 inch for the loom made all the difference to me.
Now I am contemplating getting another Novorca, slightly smaller, in order to improve my forward stroke efficiency by 0.1 percent. (LOL) But I cannot decide whether to get one with overall length reduced to 86 inches, or blade width reduced to 3.25 inches. (I am definitely keeping the loom at 24.) Any comments?
Note 1: No interest at all in carving my own.
Note 2: The new paddle will be yellow!
