We bought the Fenn IV and I have used it on a couple of streams with some stiff current. I really like it for "touring". With a simple sweep turn and some edging, I found it turns the Cypress very well.
I read all this stuff about how the wing paddles will dive under the boat and cause you to flip, if you're not careful. Not the case with this paddle at all. Just plant it close to the boat and as the boat move past the paddle in the water, it moves out away from the boat approx. 18" to 2 ft. Lift and stroke other side, same thing.
I plan on using this paddle more in the future for open water as well as river running. I do carry my wind swift, just in case I need to switch. I'm no expert, and have not tryed anything beyond forwards, backwards and sweep with this paddle, but a touring paddle it could be.
Magooch, Camano is a really sweet paddle. My husband uses his weekly. Its easy on his wrists and shoulders.
But, as for me, I'd still like to try a smaller wing, but really like the wing.
