  carbon double blade
  Posted by: kayamedic on Sep-27-12 9:52 AM (EST)
 

when you have to hold the whole blade up all day, weight matters.

Never broken a carbon blade. But I have been told not to drop heavy stuff on the shaft. Or put it on the bottom layer of something.

Wood canoe paddle. The water does a good bit of bearing the weight. I do not have to hold it up as much and the biomechanics are different. However I love my carbon bent shaft so much I am probably going to get a carbon straight. But high floatation is sometimes not what I want in a cnoe paddle.
