Dynelite Blade Width

I'm upgrading to Sawyer Dynelite oar blades and need to decide between 6" and 7" widths, so here's your chance to share your opinions! I row a 14' self-bailer solo or with one passenger, and gear for anywhere from day trips to 8 days on class III and III/IV rivers. Don't like to do a lot of really rocky/bony stuff. These would go onto Cataract SSG shafts, 9 1/2'. Thanks in advance for your input!

Go with the width your used too. I recently upgraded my old 9' carlisle with the 8" outfitter blade with some sawyer mxg and duramax blades. I usually haul lots of gear in my 14' sb sotar and believe it or not that extra 1.5" of width makes a difference. If you pull lots of weight you'll prob want to go wider. I am going to try my 8" carlisle blades on our next day trip, I like the extra power it seems to deliver.
