Q:How do I determine if I want a high or low angle? What is that?Asked on 4/26/2016 by justjsb from NW GA
A:My kayak type/characteristics and use were my primarly determinents. My
kayak is a "sit in" low center with a fairly wide beam for coastal touring
and I use a low angle. If I had a "sit on" or low center narrow beam for
white water or ocean going I would probably rethink that and go more
vertical. The right answer is pick what is comfortable for your specific
use. I am experienced but no expert so get several opinions before you
make a decision.Answered on 4/26/2016 by Anonymous
A:Depends on 2 main things that are related.
1- if you will be a short distance explosion paddler you will need a high angle.
2- if you are already used o a high angle it is kind of tricky to adapt fast to the low angle.

A:A low angle is for more relaxed paddling and can be less tiring on longer trips.
a high angle is a more aggressive style, but you can become more fatigued on longer trips.
The angle refers to the height of the paddle in the upper hand when paddling forward. If you hand is generally shoulder or lower, that is low angle, and shoulder and greater is high angle.
I use a low angle because we go on long river trips, but have used it in a "high angle" manner when needed.
Hope this helps.Answered on 4/26/2016 by Anonymous

Q:Are the shafts on these paddles oval or round?Asked on 1/25/2014 by Paddler Poet from Erie PA
A:The shaft is round on either end and in the center of the paddle, but
flatten out a little (oval) where you place your hands on either side to
paddle. I have very small hands/grip, and this paddle is much easier to
paddle with than the standard paddles.Answered on 1/25/2014 by Anonymous
A:The shaft is slightly oval in the areas where you hands fit on the paddle.Answered on 1/27/2014 by Clyde from NRS
