I totally get what you're saying and agree conditionally. The conditions one finds themselves in that is. I also "conditionally" stand by all my comments on this thread.

FWIW, if while upside-down the under current wants my paddle badly enough I will let go of the trailing end; this takes most of all the pressure off of holding onto it and protects me from getting a shoulder ripped out and/or losing the paddle. Anytime I feel my arms getting over-extended I try to use this. I feel it's safer and this is a good option for me because I'm comfortable with pulling a spare and rolling up with it.

I talked with Sergy when he lost his paddle last Sat., he said one second his paddle was there, the next it was gone. This has happened to me before. It can and will happen to anyone in the "right" conditions.

All the best, tOM
