A quick paddle question:  do you know of any structural differences between the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Alana paddles?  Thanks!

@ Robert

You should let your employees see these pictures of how Delta Cargo handled "their end" concerning the transport of my board. Your employees, who worked on  packaging my board, deserve high praise since the board only survived with the care and all the packaging on your end. I hope you tell them that and give them a personal "Thank you" from me.

Wingy, in some parts of the world you might be expected to hand out cigars!

Congrats and best of luck with the new arrival, your stoke is contageous!   :D

I only know of the 2017 Alana paddles. I can't speak for any structural changes in the 2018 and 2019 models in comparison to the 2017 models.

I now have two 2017 Alana 75 Vario RDS paddles. I can give you a picture of both of my Alana paddles side by side if you want. Just say the word and I'll get my wife and her iPad to take a picture of them together.

Since I did a flat water lake paddling session with my new Duke early this morning, I can post a picture of both of my Alana paddles in the Sessions forum in a new topic which I just made if you want to see them.

The 2017’s are on sale for a cheaper price than the 2018’s, so if they work for you, they’re good enough for me.  I’m thinking an adjustable (and a smaller blade) is the way to go.

Spirit I have some of those paddles from pre ‘17 and they’re great, so no need for concern at all for the ‘17.
