Crank Paddles

Post by jasenjordan »

Need to replace my Werner Shoguns.I love how stiff & responsive they felt.I've looked at the Mitchell blades and wonder how they would perform compared to the Shoguns .
Any experiences with Mitchell Cranks or straights please let me know.

I ordered a pair of Mitchell blades Jaguar Ultra Hybrid last year - first set came through with air bubbles and holes in the resin, so refused to pay for them and the shop sent them back. Went back about 4 weeks later to pick up 2nd set and they were worse. I ended up going for a set of AT Eddy's which are excellent and would highly reccommend!

Get another set of what you know are the best out there. If your budget is lower this time, try before you buy, as stepping down from foam core perfection is an unfulfilling experience

I'll second Simons post. I'm on my second set of Shoguns. Awesome paddles. Not cheap though.
Whats the worst that can happen?

Have you considered Nomad. If your in North Wales, or passing through drop in to the Mill in Llangollen and have a chat to Jim and Mike.
