Video - Werner Paddles First Impressions

We don't have much experience with different types of paddles. Recently we've used Lendal glass-fibre blades on carbon shafts and before that, plastic Lendal blades. We've loved them, but wanted to step-up to carbon blades and thought we'd try Werner Paddles. After two short trips this weekend I thought I'd make a few comparisons to our plastic bladed Lendal and pass some comments on video.

Obviously, no-one spends a lot of money then admits, "I bought a load of crap", so I'm going to like these, aren't I? Well, I like them so much, I've bought a second pair with a slightly smaller blade to have as splits. That wimpering noise you just heard was my bank manager weeping.
