F - Full-size blades offer power for well-conditioned paddlers
My first test of this paddle was on flatwater. My mate and I did about a 8km stretch. Firstly the Carve really felt good in my hands. The T Piece is comfortable and the ends of the T are slightly longer allowing for awesome control of the blade. The Oval Shaft had also a natural feeling about it. The smaller blade was something new and novel and it was great fun just changing strokes and pace to see what the paddle could do. The higher cadence feels comfortable and surprisingly did not lead to a drastic loss of speed. When I got into a rhythm the paddle just felt like it just wanted to carry on going which is something that does not happen often. The flatwater side of this paddle I loved. This paddle is not marketed as a downwind paddle but I gave it a shot anyway. After that awesome flatwater paddle I thought this is the "One" and did a 11km downwind with it. As I ventured out the protected harbour and got hit by a 25 Knot SE wind I realized I might have made a mistake. We had to paddle out away from shore and I found the smaller blade not offering the same power as my 9.5 inch blade to get in the right direction. Instead of the one or two harder strokes it was now 4-5 strokes all of which did not really help. With the wind directly behind me the paddle was fine but I think I would have preferred a bigger blade to get quicker on the runners.
