Werner Rip Stick 89  - Changed to a Rip Stick 79, which I now prefer, except the handle is a bit small, AND I've found I've lost my grip on the smaller radius shaft (during a few wipeouts) which never happens with larger diameters. If I could have a do-over, I would get the 79 blade with the normal diameter shaft and normal size handle. 

QB Trifecta 86 - I kind of custom spec'd this fro QB with the slight taper shaft required in order to have the EVA foam covered handle. I like the paddle.  Nothing to complain about.   

Two adjustable Naish Makanis for friends - Described as having 8.0" blades. These are gems for being adjustable paddles. They are light, and reasonably small blade size, and with my preferred Tahitian style handle.  Nothing disappointing or frustrating about them.  I also have a three piece travel version which I have never used and would be happy if someone wanted to buy it. I've schlepped a one piece instead. 

Laird Pro 85 with tear drop blade - This fell into my hands by accident and became my favorite paddle (for flatwater). Maybe it's the teardrop shape blade (with no ferrule btw), but it hits the sweet spot of being able to crank through endless strokes without wearing me down.  Then I got the Trifecta, so feel obligated to use that fancy paddle, but the Laird is a great paddle.
