  Long use of just one paddle can allow

little variances to creep in, plus what we psychologists call "reactive inhibition." Switching to another paddle that requires a little different approach, and that gives a different "feel," can mean that your alternate stroke is working efficiently.

When cruising my 15' whitewater boat on easy rivers, I switch between a 61" Mitchell slalom with a curved blade, and a 60.5" homemade 5 degree bent shaft with a flat blade. Not much difference in style, but enough difference in feel to remove some inefficiencies.
