Powerhouse or Sherpa??
First post here, great forum!
I am a South African grad student in Canada (Edmonton, aka paddler purgatory!). I have paddled extensively for about 10 years and been a raft guide for most of that time too (SA, Ecuador, Canada). Done some boating in Idaho too.
Anyway, looking for some opinions on the Powerhouse and Sherpa. Other than the 2 Lendals I just broke in 27 days of paddling my last two paddles have been a Rough Stuff Kinetic bent and a Werner Side Kick straight shaft. I really like the Lendal Kinetic Xti blade, but the paddle quality is crap...
I am looking at a new Werner 197cm bent and need an allrounder. I run a variety of rivers, equal amounts of play and creek.
I am trying to decide between the Sherpa and Powerhouse? The PH sounds good, but I am not too sure about it suitability for play boating??
Any opinions....demos for paddles are thin on the ground in this city.
