Here's a clean track of the Taylor Slough and Nine Mile Pond.
Now we know where to go! (only one deviation where I went through the wall instead of going around with the rest of you...
Thanks to Terry & the whole crew. Great time, long to be remembered!
I've been using them for years. When I first got them I was scared that they were real delicate. I even made myself a pushpole so I wouldn't have to use the paddles.
Years later I abandoned the pushpole, I use the paddles for everything and the only ding I got was in the spoonbill pass trip I hurt one a bit, but that was because I used it like a machete on a mangrove root out of frustration trying to get out of a jam.
And even that wasn't fatal, just a visible nick.
Now that you said what you said and I said what I said, I'm probably jinxed...hopefully I won't crack a paddle this weekend leisurely paddling down fisheating creek!
I had 2 ZRE carbon paddles on the trip and used one and loaned another one to Rob who will probably end up buying one for himself. I also had an aluminum Cannon canoe paddle to help with poling in some areas. In all the years I have had the carbon paddles I have never broken one. I push off oyster reefs, assorted bottom stuff and not even a nick. They are Everglades approved.
