Long time kayaker, first time rafter. My wife and I bought a shredder and need to get to the accoutrement. Looking for fiberglass or Al paddle recommendations. We know and appreciate a good paddle from our kayaking years, so the Werner Guide Stick is at the top of the list. But I've seen a lot of posts on other forums that inexpensive paddles are the way to go for rafting. Would love paddle recommendations for a newbie rafter.
Also, anyone have experience with paddle sizing for a shredder? Same sizing as if I was paddling a standard raft or do I need to size up/down?
