Who says size doesn't matter? Well, you'd sure think it didn't if you walked into any general sporting good store looking to buy a canoe paddle. It seems the salesperson will just sell you whatever they have on the shelf regardless of your height, what boat you're paddling, or your experience level.
Well, you can this hassel the next time you're in the market for a canoe paddle. Learn to size a canoe paddle for yourself and you'll end up teaching the sales team a thing or two about paddles.
