I'm selling my recently purchased Betsie Bay Greenlander paddle on eBay starting tonight. Sometimes you simply buy something that, for reasons unexplanable, just doesn't feel right. Immediately out of the box, this paddle seemed unfit for me. It is a gem, and I believe would be best for someone over 5 feet 11 inches tall. Technically, the length is right., and it is without any flaws at all. The hand span/ blade span is slightly broad for my hands, and that may be a factor. The workmanship is impeccable, and the paddle itself--hand made in Frankfort, MI--is a work of art. Someone will get a bargain on it on eBay. I will stay with my other GPs for now.
