I do like Warner paddles. One minor problem. My new boat is "magenta" (a kind of purplish pink). I would like the paddle to coordinate with the boat. I also decided that I wanted a paddle that is bright and easy to see, especially for open water paddling. (My hubby has a transluscent red Warner. It really shows up well.) So I decided that I'd like a bright pink or pinkish paddle.
Long story short, cannot find what I want. However, Swift will custom make a paddle if I provide the fabric. I'm still trying to decide between the "Mid-Swift and the "Wind-Swift". Probably go with the "Mid-Swift". I've located BRIGHT fabric that should compliment my boat nicely.
I am waiting for the boat to get here (another long story)and will check the fabric against the boat before I contact the Swift rep back to custom make the paddle.
Let's just say...I won't blend in with a crowd
