I just demoed one off Rod from Starboard & used it for a 13km downwinder, 10km flatwater & a bop training session & loved it....I went straight to Mark at ESS & bought one... I've always used keNalu paddles for my race board paddling & love them but this was a breath of fresh air.... Light & really quick release with no cavitating... Really recommend it & a great price to...

What size did you get? I'm 85kg and have been looking at the Black Project Hydro 88, the Lima options would be either an L - 82 or an XL - 91. At 85kg and 6'4" the 82 'sounds' too small, but it seems that all paddles and paddlers seem to be going smaller!

Just wondering what sort of distances you are doing, to go with the medium paddle?, is this to increase the cadence over a longer period with wearing yourself out, would you use a L size paddle for shorter distances, at what point would you make the choice to use a Large or Medium paddle? Sorry for all the questions

The shop where I bought mine advised to by larger than usual - I read in the starboard literature the same. Seems the right advice after using it.
