The biggest issue is probably going to be making sure that you choose a Pelican wood canoe paddle that is the right size for you. This can be tricky because the right size is going to depend on what you intend to use your canoe for. The rule of thumb is that the shaft should equal the distance from your mouth to the water. The problem is that this distance will vary depending on the type of canoe you are using, it will also depend on whether you are going to kneel or sit when you paddle. Knowing these things will make it easier to choose the best canoe paddle.

It is also going to be important that you choose a canoe paddle that has a shaft diameter that is comfortable in your hand. They come in all kinds of different sizes choosing the right one is mainly about trial and error. A shaft that is too small will cause your hand to cramp while one that is too big will tire your hand out. An oval shaft will be more comfortable but a round one will be cheaper.

The handle is another important consideration and will depend on how you intend to use your canoe. A T-grip will give you the most control but it will also tire out your hand fairly quickly, it is ideal for white water canoeing. A pear shaped grip is much more comfortable but it comes at the expense of control, it is a good choice for long distance trips. A soft T-grip falls somewhere in between and is a compromise for recreational paddlers.

A big wide blade is a good choice for white water since it will give you the most control. On the other hand a long narrow blade will allow you to paddle for hours without getting too tired, a good choice for long distance trips. There is of course a medium size blade that is a good compromise for recreational canoeing. Again thinking about how you plan to use your canoe will help you to make the right choice of Pelican wood canoe paddle.
