I appreciate the pragmatic feedback from NLP users. I admit I've been also tempted by the Novorca paddles for the beauty of their jewel-like color options, but a 3 piece one of his would cost more than some of my kayaks have! The NLP's have their own sleek beauty.
Another thought occurred to me just now concerning shoulders -- I imagine the slight recess in the paddle edge might make it marginally more secure when stashed under the deck bungee rigging. My unshouldered WRC has tried to slither out a few times, mostly when hauling the boat up a bank with the paddle stashed on deck.
Am probably over-thinking this regarding the shoulders. Guess I'll go for the standard shouldered 3-piece NLP this summer.
