I guess I lucked out. My first real paddle is the Mana 82, XTUf S, and ergo T. Love it. Didn't put it together, so I don't know if it is frontwards or backwards.

Wow. You nailed it right down the line.

What canoe guys call a draw stroke. You place the paddle a foot or so away from the bow and then pull towards yourself, steering the board in that direction.

If i want to turn left I always paddle on the right and the other way around so I guess I won't miss this draw stroke
I got myself a Mana 90 just hope it will be ok after paddling a Maliko 95 for years.

Already tried it 3 inch longer, going from minus 2 to plus 1 but that was terrible.
