  We need another carbon alternative
  Posted by: Glenn_MacGrady on Dec-22-12 11:33 AM (EST)
 

The primary attraction of the ZRE straight is simply weight. However, as this thread shows, there is dissatisfaction with the asymmetrical grip, the offset blade, and even the shape of the blade.

Whitewater carbon paddles are too heavy and have too much blade. That Chinese carbon flatwater paddle marketed by Grey Owl and (I think) Wenonah is too heavy and has an asymmetrical grip.

The world could use a carbon paddle with ZRE weight, a nice symmetrical grip, and a centered blade that is more of a rounded edge Sugar Island style of medium blade area.

Someone could and should make such a paddle.
