Seems like a good paddle. Not used to the less feathering and length but do ok with it. Well made and light. No arm/wrist fatigue after 4-5+ hrs on river. A little spendy.
I havent tried my 200 cm in much other than a down river run. The blade is light and so reduces fatigue. The blade doesnt seem to flutter. This is at least a great basic paddle.
This paddle has been a very comfortable fit for me. After a year of using it, I bought a second one as a backup. The shape of the shaft is easy to feel and the blades have not worn down too quickly. Great paddle.
I'm 5'11'' and the 197cm is a perfect length. I've used it twice now and completely satisfied. I'm new to kayaking and like to save a buck if I can. ACK has the lowest price and fastest shipping that I can find. I'll be a happy returning customer.
