Select w1 paddles
For the past few years I have been using the w1's from Select a french made kayak paddle . Fire it up have supported me with paddles and here are my thoughts on the paddles. http://www.fire-it-up.co.uk/
The blade shape allows for fast directional changes on easy to hard water , a very sensitive blade feedback area transfers feel to the fantastic shape of the shaft grip, this locks the paddle in your hand when pulling on the blade. great for most make moves. I also have the 3 way splits that i use when guiding with clients, there are so popular that i have to stop the clients forgetting there paddle on purpose.there is a slight flex in the shaft and this allows any shock to be taken out before it transmits to your shoulders. they come in small ,medium and large blade shapes so far i have tested the small and medium blades and looking forward to playing with the large blades, straight and neutral bent shafts also available. A good paddle for anyone that wants quality with price to match.
