Re: Wing Paddles

Posted by Ice-Phil on Jun 22, 2004

Mac, I love the wing in a narrow T.Bolt and hate it in a wider 20" touring boat. I don't think it is the blades though. The wing is 211 vs. an oversized touring blade at 218. My stroke is essentially the same with either paddle. I am convinced it is the shaft length difference. I can not adjust the lengths. A very fast friend on a Fenn Ski uses an adustable length wing and says that he can notice even a 1 cm. change in length. He also thinks it is a length thing after watching me paddle both. I'm stuck for now in the touring boat to a longer shaft paddle.
