  A benefit not listed yet for feathering
  Posted by: trvlrerik on Apr-06-13 3:14 PM (EST)

I am a high angle paddler that normally does not feather my large blade paddles. When going straight into a head wind the blades develop a lot of spray when raised. In the summer not a big deal, even welcome on a hot day. In the cold, not fun. Feathering at least 60 degrees cuts the ice building spray a lot.
