Lendal & Gearlab

Postby Mulga » Sat Oct 22, 2016 10:33 am

Howdy all,

I have a couple of new paddles but have yet to try them on the water; it will be a few weeks until my new Nadgee Solo is delivered :) I thought I would share a few photos. I have never tried a Greenland style paddle before so very much looking forwards to it.

A Gearlab Akiak 225 cm and a Lendal Storm 110 cm.

How sharp are the edges of the GP? If blunt, they don't work well.

How sharp is sharp?

Manufacturer claims:
"Sharp paddle blade edges provide crisp and precise paddling"

I have one of the older gear labs. Edges are rather large and very buoyant. I don't use the same 'spearing' action as with other GPS, but it still works very well. Nice paddle IMO.

They have reduced the edges from the older versions. They do get good reviews.
