  Matching Blade Size to Boat Length...
  Posted by: bowler1 on Mar-28-13 5:35 AM (EST)

On a different note, I personally find blade size to be something that needs to be matched to your boat as well.

To me, longer waterline boats generally are better to use with a mid-sized blade like a Shuna or Cyprus. With shorter boats (which require less effort to paddle at typical paddling speeds but max out their speed pretty quickly) I find bigger blades preferable like my Ikelos.

You need to match the gear ratio to your vehicle.
