  The advantages are only anecdotal
  Posted by: paddlemore on Apr-08-13 10:17 PM (EST)

Any benefits of having a feathered paddle while paddling into a headwind are not supported by solid research. In an isolated (not real world) environment there are benefits if you look at a discrete set of factors. However, when you look at potential benefits and weigh them against costs in a real world environment you will probably find a net benefit of zero.
