  70 Kayak Strokes Equal 35 Canoe Strokes
  Posted by: clydehedlund on Jan-10-13 7:35 PM (EST)
 

Kicking it up around 80+ will make a hell of a difference. Even at 90 spm, it is only half as many as the current 200m Olympic kayak Champ does. One & half strokes per second, using an Onno Small Wing (@208cm) enables me to stay with the teenager. To maintain that pace using the Onno Small Mid-wing, I shorten the shaft to between 203 - 205 cm. With the Onno Large Wing, the Onno Lever Lock is clamped at 199cm for a hell of a workout with the pacer set at 90spm. When I decide on the appropriate length, I'll order the Onno Mid-wing later this year and compare it to the others.
