- Q & A
Would there be any reason to not use a short Whiskey paddle for running rivers in Alaska in a packraft? Nothing more than easy class III. I'm looking for a lightweight paddle that will be a good hybrid of 'touring' comfort and whitewater capability. I realize that the manufacturer does not intend for it to be a whitewater paddle.
Hey Kirsten, based on your need for a break down paddle for pack rafting I would say that this paddle would work for what you are looking for. With whitewater though the main concern with these paddles are the points where the paddle breaks down. Traditionally you will see fixed shaft paddles in whitewater due to the strain exerted when paddling and bracing in whitewater. That being said though I think this would be one of the better options out there to suit your needs.
