Which paddle do YOU own?
« on: April 07, 2020, 02:52:47 PM »
After tooling around and seeing some really cool looking graphics on some paddles like the KeNalu on this site. The the Kialoa which I currently own is ok but damn I've seen some great ones and my oh my are they proud of them.

Soooo, which one do you have and maybe some pics or links?

I have few of these (and others). 1, 2 and 3 piece. ZRE is their name and paddle is their game.
in progress...

Hi Windwarrior,

ZRE are a great paddle. ZRE is pretty well all I use now. I think Burchas and I are two of the main ZRE ambassadors on this forum.

If you are interested, I do have a spare ZRE I’d be willing to sell. If you would like further details, shoot me a PM.

And even if you don’t buy from me, ZRE makes a really good paddle.
ONE SUP Edge Pro 12' 6" x 22"
ONE SUP Evo 12’ 6” x 24”
Infinity Whiplash 12' 6" x 24 1/2"
ONE SUP Evo 12’ 6” x 26”
Bark Competitor 12’ 6” x 29”
Red Paddle Explorer (Inflatable) 13' 2" x 30
Red Paddle Race (Inflatable) 12’ 6” x 30”

ZRE Power Surge ZX4, Kevlar braided shaft (75”)

The wave storm paddle got re-purposed, and the old Fiberglass Werner was sold with a board. I do need a new surfing paddle. The beater Brawner I'm currently using is kinda heavy. Love my Kenalu for distance with the flexy Xtuf shaft. So easy on my shoulders. It's a little heavier than most Kenalu's because I have the extended Ergo T handle to get it to 89" long  ;D

It's not overhead to me!

Yeah, I know Werner well! I have a pair of them for sea kayaking and they're great! How do those perform in paddleboarding? Be it flat or ocean?

Yes I like them too.
If I would have a chance I would blend those two Wereners in one. I like the bit thinner shaft on S and fact it's more "responsive" - it has more flex and I feel like it "helps" me (could be really subjective of course). And I like the length of another one (I think it fits me better); the blade is slightly bigger as well. But the shaft is stiffer and slightly bigger in diameter, and balance is not 100% right for me (top-heavy)- probably because  it has a plastic handle (S has a carbon)
