Personally, I don't have the experience with these paddles to weigh in on the debate, but I will say I've been shopping new paddles myself lately.... and if price is the critical factor here, there's not a huge slide between the $430-$450 Woody, and the $425 DD (unless you're going the straight shaft route??)??
I did run across straight shaft DD's for the mid-$200's (I think at NOC?), but only up to 197 cm.... and there *is* a bent-shaft DD out there on the web at $240-ish.... but they've only got it in the 191 cm variety-- for whatever that info's worth?
(disclaimer: I know you guys are going to say, "support your local paddle shop" instead, but we don't really have a 'local' shop where I am-- the one that *is* here sucks so badly most the folks I know are loathe to spend their $$ there-- so I have to rely on the internet instead. sorry 'bout that!)
