  Don't be Coy, Now

For me:

Wider paddle = little or no flutter.

Narrower paddle = some flutter on the first stroke or two.

I realize I can reduce my power on those first strokes and reduce the flutter, but I found that a shorter, wider paddle makes that unnecessary. You think there's some other variable accounting for this?
