I thought this blade might be too much surface but it's not. The dihedral shape lets enough water flow off the sides so that it pulls though the water no matter how hard of soft you pull on it. The advantages of this design far outweigh the disadvantages. It catches just right very early, right when it hits the water. It also does well at any angle or even half submerged if you are in some really tight areas. The blades do catch more wind but the adjustable ferrule works like a dream. I also have a Lendal Kanetic S tour, which is a little small for me, but it does have a lot of catch for such a small blade. The Ikelos is my primary paddle though. It really does everything well.
