What type of paddle do you have Pete?
I'm looking at the Aquabound Expedition AMT in carbon fibre. It is not super light, but the weight to $$$ ratio is the best I could find @ 33 oz. and around $200.
Are those next 6 oz. I could shave off the weight really worth the extra $130?
P.S. I keep forgeting that you are accumulating polyethelene watercraft down there in the Area 61 "black ops" hanger.
