Uh ... I built mine. Its shaft is carbon/kevlar over pvc tube, and the blades are glass over plywood. Which option do I pick? - 'mongrel' isn't on the list :lol:

You've just got to remember to include 'Other' as an option in every poll. That's the catch-all bucket for us weirdos.

I have been using Carbon for a whole week now. Just got to work out how to let the wife know I have been spending money again. She is bound to notice as it is not a dayglo colour and if we go out it wont be "Which paddle doe you want?" "Oh I don't care they are all pretty much the same" It will be gimme the black one.
Simple is as simple does.
