Anyone recommend a “real” paddle for my Tsunami? I am using a 230cm Day Tripper now which is extremely cheap and probably not very efficient. Will a different shape or length make a difference?
high end, great paddles out there that someone will mention, but the ones up from the day tripper such as the Magic from Carlisle are good for the money. Lots more comfortable and bigger bite. I have a day tripper too, but just use it as a spare or loaner.
Werner Carbon Fiber
If you have a low angle style, Werner carbon fiber Kalista. Straight shaft or bent shaft. Pure bliss. Worth every penny. High angle, its the carbon fiber Cyprus, straight or bent shaft. Consult their web site for the length. http://www.wernerpaddles.com/
