I remember Norse paddles quite well. I liked their canoe paddles better than the kayak paddles. My Dad used an Illiad paddle with the rubber coated shaft, a lot of our friends were on the Norse. I was a small kid and used Mitchell paddles for the weight untill I got bigger and more aggressive and started breaking them. Anyone remember the River Chaser plastic boat?

I used their guide stick back in the day. Big blade, stiff shaft. You could move a lot of water with that blade. Probably not a good choice for smaller, finesse guides but a good choice for bigger, stronger guides. Not a good choice for people with shoulder problems either.
