I use a 60 inch paddle

but, I am 6 ft. tall. And, I doubt that the 57 inch paddle fits you, (unless it has a long thin blade). Like Kayakmedic said, the length of the shaft is key. And I agree with him that you probably should be using something in the 54 inch range. I'm going to guess that there is a paddling technique issue involved and that you are not putting the paddle into the water with it held vertically.
