I'm also a proponent of only keeping 'good'paddles on the boat, and having them in reach, preferably already assembled. Also, I almost always do the GP/EP mix, that way I don't have to decide which to use before putting in.
When I first fell in love with the GP, I used to go out with 2 of them, but if there's a situation where someone in a group needs a spare and they've never used a GP before, that would be a problem.
