Took the Yawfin out for its first spin last week and was impressed by what I felt. I knew it would probably work good but I didn’t realize how awesome it was. Once I figured out my hand placement and got a shorter grip it really shined. It seemed to clean up my stroke and helped with my release. At first it would hang up on my release. But proper hand placement is the key. If I held it in the sweet spot my stroke was crisp and dead on steady. The more time with it made the paddle feel like it was gripping the water held true to the stroke and had a clean release. Can’t wait to get more time with it on the water. I am certain it will make me a better paddler and keep me tracking straighter.
