Plain old Zaveral Z paddles slice better than any other I've used.
When I had the standard bent shaft my in water recovery was no different than it is with a straight shaft.
Yes the blade was not perpendicular. But since my goal was to slice the paddle forward with minimal drag I can't see that angle making any noticeable difference.
It would make a difference if I was trying to combine a bow draw with my slice. That is one reason I prefer the straight shaft.
So why would anyone reach out or flip the blade simply to slice the blade forward?
