When will you be getting 200cm paddles...
When will you be getting 200cm paddles back in stock?
Unfortunately we will not be getting any more of these in the 200cm length.
Did you discontinue the powerhouse, or is it just out of season?
they have more 200s now.
Have had this out mostly on low volume rivers class III and IV, handled it all well. Perfect blade size for me, prefer a more powerful catch, though it never felt like too much paddle. The fiberglass straight shaft is so light, I'm not sure why you would need to go with carbon. I am 6'1" and went with the 200cm, figured that would give the paddle a longer period of fitting well after the edges wear down a bit.

Standard for this paddle is 30 degrees, right hand control, the one I ordered from BD.com was exactly that.
