New Paddle

I am planning on getting a new paddle in the next few weeks. I plan on getting a carbon bent shaft. The three paddles I am looking to buy are the Werner Powerhouse, Shogun, and AT Geronimo. A have a Werner player right now, but it has been used and abused. I"m getting into to creek boating a lot now, but still like to playboat. Which paddle would be a good choice

Nthing a Powerhouse. Seems like it's the standard equipment among most of the people I kayak with, for good reason.

The Powerhouse is bad ass for creek boating. Not so much for playboating. The blades are super large which favors fewer strokes, when playboating a paddler uses more corrective strokes which a powerhouse doesnt do, it is also way harsher on the joints.

Love the powerhouse for creeking... Hate it for play.

Someone had to stop the circle jerk.
