the shoulderless is apparently in production but not on the NLP website yet.
I have been an ambassador for NLP since the early days and have been using the 3-piece Greenland and Aleut.
I love the Greenland and until recently I would use it for all my paddling. Only now that the shoulderless has become available (it was in the works for while but moulds are expensive to produce) I have the option.
As for sliding strokes initially felt a bit odd with the NLP Greenland but after a few hours on the water I no longer felt the "bump".
I guess I just got used to the shoulder and has not bothered me.
What I find different on NLP paddles to the other wooden ones and one custom carbon GP I have is the loom shape.
The flat section of the loom sits very well with my hand and somehow feels nicer without a hot spot that occasionally get form a more oval/round shaft.
Thank you for the comment on my images.
All of my images are for sale and occasionally a magazine purchases one. However I do not solicit the sale since the payment is usually not worth the effort.
I do supply images to my sponsors as a thank you for their support.
I also have found a few people pinching my images from the net without authorization.
Every so often they get busted for copyright infringement with associated fees.
