The Rogue is an outstanding paddle and has treated me well for many years! The blade shape gives me lots of power with each stroke and there is no flutter with the blade as I pull through each stroke. It is extremely versatile. I have won and placed at the top of many races with this paddle. I also playboat with this paddle and run the stoutest of drops with it. When I take a stroke with the Rogue, I have the confidence that it will give me the power and stability I need to nail my move!
