Gearlab Akiak Smooth 230 in Black. 6 ft tall paddler.
I like it. Not so much at first but that's the learning curve not the paddle. Its easy to hold in many different places and it seems to propel me just as well as a european style paddle of similar weight and length. I still have to concentrate sometimes as I'm re-learning the stroke to the Greenland style but its a fun process and don't think I could have picked a better paddle. I still want to make a wooden on and will probably use the Akiak as the model.
