It’s no secret I prefer wooden paddles, or it wasn’t till now.  They just feel better for starters.  You can do more with the shape, weight, flex, and over all design.  What you gain in less weight with carbon fiber not worth it here.  We paddle for numerous reasons a work out is part of that reason. With wood you can get something that doesn’t look the same as the other black off the shelf stick.  Oh they are made by hand by some person in your local neighborhood.  At least try one.

Thanks for checking us out. Walt
