Lovely work. I've been following the thread about the GP's. I don't have a reel you want but is there something else you need? I'd really like to try out a paddle like that.

Re: Greenland Paddle

I think my length of WRC was around $60. Loom shape: I didn't commit to a particular shape at the start. My one and only GP has a round loom so if anything, that was the default.

There was some flutter on the power strokes from a dead in the water position but, changing the angle of attack sorted that. I will trim down the edges of the blade a little more and be a little more precious around...

Re: Greenland Paddle
