... I think 50" for a Foxworx bent is a good length for a 5-10 guy.
While having different length paddles for different seating, hull and load configurations may be optimal, the recreational canoeist can adapt to many different length paddles. I've used the same favorites in all canoes for many years (some of them 30 years), but I'm a non-racing, lily dipping, steady-but-medium-pace, sub-optimal kind of guy.
