First, Woody Paddles are comparable in weight to all the AT Paddles I have used. Secondly, there are three Woody Paddles with varying weights and durabilities. The CompLite is the lightest but not quite as strong as the others. The Freakstyle is sturdier and a little heavier (this is what I paddle) and the Creeker is the heaviest but strongest. Don't get me wrong, it still isn't that heavy. If you are going to complain about the weight of the Woody Paddles, make sure you do two things:
- First, state which Woody you are talking about and refer to how your favored lighter paddle compares in strength; and
Second, get your ass pumping some iron in the gym so everyone else on the river doesn't think you're a pussy.
