I don't agree

I hear endless reasons and rationalization from both sides. I hear people who went back to unfeathered ridiculing those who paddle feathered.
to me it's all about the application and options. I have an adjustable so I usually paddle unfeathered, when I go to a strict high-angle stroke I change to feathered. It minimizes wrist rotation for me and my wrists are my vulnerable point.
The one time I tried a wing, it just didn't feel right unfeathered, again because of wrist rotation.
I will never tell anyone else they are compensating for flaws when they use a feathered paddle or a bent-shaft paddle; in practice we're all different.
What I don't get are ww paddles that only have a righthand feather. WW guys must be like golfers.
