  It bites - or rather doesn't
  Posted by: mintjulep on Feb-07-13 2:46 PM (EST)
 

A strong current, if it's uniform, shouldn't make any difference. But if it's not uniform and you need to maneuver across eddy lines or avoid big rocks it might be less than ideal.

Skinny paddles lack the bite for "right now" moves like a big powerful bow or side draw or rudder.

If the conditions aren't likely to need such things then go for it.
