Carlisle paddles

Just wanted some help... I wanted to get 6 of the Carlisle economy paddles and wanted to see how they held up and what size to get? Should I go with the 60 or 66? I figured 20 bucks a piece was pretty cheap. Let me know your thoughts!!!

We have those for our paddle rafts. Not at all durable, that said they get fhe job done and I like the way they paddle, unlile the Warner guide stick. Ive roached a dozen or more in five years of guiding. Mostly severely bent or snapped while surfing full rafts. Im also 6'3" and 270 lbs so its not hard to break shit. I always used the 60". We give that size to everybody from little kids to folks my height, so that size is more universal. Also the 66" is easier to break because of the increased leverage.

On a day trip every full raft has two spares, so buy a few extra.

Thank you maybe it may be smarter to bump up spend a bit extra for a bit better quality... I will go with the 60 sounds like that is about standard!
