Gearlab Ipik Decision

Has anyone (else) made the leap? Mine won’t be available until Feb. '23.


Did anyone decide not to purchase - for a reason other than cost?

I bought a Kalleq earlier this year and love it. Are you new to greenland paddles or considering an upgrade from an existing one?

I’ve used several GP including a Kallaq but have never owned one.

Like Iml999, I bought a Kalleq last year and love it. But it is the only greenland style paddle I have used.

The shoulders, oval loom and of course the weight sold me on the Ipik.

Looks like a really nice paddle!

The Kalleq doesn’t feel like it weighs anything!
