I've been paddling a 220cm carbon fiber Kalliste for the last 6 years. It fits me so well and I'm thinking of picking up a 2nd one and demote my current paddle to be a spare. My current spare is a very old Camano, which I used for years, then I went to a carbon fiber Shuna and finally made the jump to from high-angle to the low-angle Kalliste and never looked back. The light weight of full carbon fiber is amazing and makes long paddles so much easier. Just think you have to hold and swing that paddle thousands of times during a trip. I don't notice any flutter as some reviews mention. I use this paddle with a Romany and a CD Cypress.
