Well, okay. Most of my Euro paddles have a grip area where one naturally tends to hold the paddle. The GP paddle doesn't have a specific hand location, so one day when I was paddling along, the wind and current were creating a situation where the kayak I was in was wanting to pull to the right. For a while I edged the boat a bit to keep it on course, but as that got tiresome, it dawned on me to slide the paddle to my right a couple of inches to lengthen the leverage on that side. It worked and I was able to maintain my cadence and equal effort on both sides of the boat. No corrective strokes were required and any edging was minimalized.
I made a mental note to myself to use that same technique when using a Euro under the same circumstances. It works.
There; do you see what I mean about embarassing myself? It shouldn't take years of paddling and a GP paddle to figure that out, but it did. On one of my paddles--a Werner--there is no particular grip location. I guess that should have given me a clue. I don't use that paddle much, so that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
