I'll chime in as well that the Lendal is a nice paddle, but
I have found I tend to get more flutter out of it than I
do with the Werner Sidekick. Whether true or not, I
also feel like I got more power out of a Werner paddle
blade shape (or AT for that matter) than out of the
Kinetik blades, not much but I have slightly better
acceleration with the Werner.
I do know I hit rocks more with the new Lendal, but it's
also 3cm longer than the the Werner was when it was
new, so that's probably closer to 10cm difference now
It does have a great locking system, and the ability to play
with paddle offsets is nifty too.
