I bought the glassblade Corryvrecken (straight shaft 215 cm) a few weeks ago and used it for touring (about 150 km total) and for river racing (about 10 km). I was very satisfied with the feel during racing. I think it's a good paddle for stronger paddlers (big blades!). It's very light and has a nice catch.
There are a few disadvantages:
- not suitable for rocky whitewater (tips of blades are not reinforced with kevlar or metal).
- the joint of the two paddle parts has too much tolerance. The joint is not stiff.
- the price is too high (I paid 300 Euro's) for this paddle.
When I need a new paddle I'll probably look for another one.
