Blade Design
Most paddle blades feature an  asymmetrical dihedral shape. An asymmetrical blade is relatively narrow and shorter on one side. That angles it so the surface area of the blade is more uniform when it’s pushing though the water.
Because they’re lighter, narrower blades are comfortable for long stretches of paddling; that’s especially helpful on a full-day tour or a multiday trip.
