  My take...
  Posted by: bowler1 on Feb-18-13 8:35 AM (EST)
 

I have not read the other responses, but imagine that there are others who feel the same...

I choose to take a high quality paddle of a different size or variety with me so that I can swap out paddles if i choose to.

I own a big blade Ikelos, and a smaller blade Cyprus. I bring both with me so that i can "change gears" if I choose

Or, I will bring a GP with me for a change.

And sometimes...I will also bring a storm paddle for the front deck if I am paddling in conditions where I need immediate access to a spare if I drop my primary and or it is ripped out of my hands in surf, etc. The storm paddle is immediately able to be put into use, and can be retrieved while upside down under water too.
