  WRC in an Aleut
  Posted by: bartc on Sep-27-12 5:08 PM (EST)

Not only does it feel "right" to my hands, it also is ridiculously light. Racers who use carbon and have picked up my cedar paddle are usually very impressed!

As to other properties of woods, WRC is easy to work, but very strong for its weight. Also exceedingly water and rot resistant, even without finish it seems.

Of course, it's much better with Tung Oil for a finish.
