The smaller Trance blade size was easier on the muscles however still not sure if I'm sold on the high aspect blades.  Bill, I'm going to have to give the "mail slot" thing a chance but I figure if either blade needs to be fully submerged before it's pulled, how does the high aspect make for a softer catch?

I'm not trying to argue at all, I love the physics behind it and just want to learn more.

I have been working on strokes per side after watching some Larry Cain videos on Paddle Monster.  I concentrate on really stacking my shoulders.  My catch is aimed a little away from the board to give a brief pull inward before I pull straight back.  Also, try leaning on the opposite rail a bit.  The displacement hull will actually help steer the board a bit.  For example, paddling on the right hand side makes the board want to go left.  Lean on the left rail and the shape of the bow will want to push the board right.  I can get 30 strokes on one side.  Maybe more if I really concentrate.

I totally agree that I need work on the catch.  I can get it clean but it definitely requires more attention.  Keep in mind I paddle the SUP purely to put some variation in my "on water" workouts.  I love paddling OC1s and surfskis.  Funny but it's way easier to sink an OC1 blade cleanly because you don't have to worry as much about you lower body position.

I'm 6ft, 200lb, 35 inch waste and work out regularly.  I have a Trance 85 that I really to try since I don't have any other smaller blade paddles.  I'm definitely not a high cadence paddler.  My lower back is still getting used to bending over a zillion times in a row despite trying to engage my ham strings.

I'm 6ft and it's cut at 79".  Not sure why the height would make the difference.  I figured from a blade perspective, i need to pause a half second and ensure that the blade id fully submerged before I really start to pull.  Then it won't gurgle.  But it means that by the time I'm really pulling, I have all 96 sq inches in the water.

I had been paddling with a Kenalu Maliko for over a year and recently picked up a Trifecta to give a high aspect blade a try as they are said to have a softer catch which would be good for me as I paddle distance flat water.

When first using the Trifecta, I found that I was getting gurgling at every catch.  Now the shaft is a few inches shorter than my Maliko which was not helping the issue, however to add to the issue, I had to bury a longer blade to really plant it.

This leads me to the following question.  Does the blade shape really make a big difference is the entire thing is supposed to be buried at the catch?  I know the surface of the blade makes a difference in feel (dihedrals etc), but 95 sq inches buried under the water should give the same resistance regardless correct?  I know I'm wrong, I just can't noodle through why.  For example, take two totally flat blades (a la Kialoa), one is a tear drop and the other is a square high aspect.  Both are 95 square inches.  Bury them both to the ferule and pull.  Difference?

At what point would your "f*ck this" alarm go off?  Mine would have been the first time I and my board got dragged 30yards over rock.  Yup I'm out.  Where's the sand.

Sold!  Actually to myself  ;D

I ordered the adjustable t handle from Werner and I'm going to convert it.

I think 20mph airspeed with 10mph tailwind would have you going 30mph ground speed.  This is why the plane ride is shorter with a tail wind.  It's perceived airspeed that is needed to create lift.

Sorry, couldn't leave it alone  ;D

Hey folks.  Got a Werner Trance (brand new) with a Isup I bought for my wife.  It's a one piece cut to 77".  I'd rather get an adjustable for her so she can use it and the kids can also.  It has never been used.  The original sticker goo is still on it from when I did a crappy job taking it off.

$250 obo.  Also would consider trades if that works for anyone.
